Muffins are such a wonderfully versatile snack. They are really easy to pack and are so fun to make with your children! This recipe is one of my favourites to pop in a lunch set for my girls' school lunches. The muffins are naturally sweet, yet are actually refined sugar-free and full of healthy fruit! If your little ones are anything like mine, I can promise you that they will be delighted to see this yummy treat in their lunch box.
Cook time: 30-35 minutes
Makes: 12 Muffins
