Apple & honey hoops muffins
Today I want to share a very classic recipe but with a cereally twist of course: Apple & Honey Hoops Muffins! 🤩
These muffins are soft and moist thanks to the apple and raisins (totally optional if you don't like them, but highly recommended!) but also crunchy on the surface thanks to the Honey Hoops cereal!
They are very simple but so delicious 😋
Give it a try, you can actually use whatever cereal you have on hand to make them!
The recipe is in the section below 😊
1 egg (room temperature)
90g all purpose flour
60g granulated sugar
4g baking powder
35g vegetable oil*
25g raisins or chocolate chips
1/2 lemon (zest)
20g Honey Hoops
--- TOPPINGS ---
Soak raisins in warm water for 15-20 minutes (you can skip this step if you are using chocolate chips).
Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C) and prepare your muffin tin with 6 paper cups.
In a bowl add all purpose flour and baking powder. Mix with a hand whisk and leave it aside.
In another bowl whisk together egg and sugar with the electric mixer until light and foamy (about 2 minutes).
Add oil or melted butter and keep whisking until creamy; finally add the dry ingredients and mix just to combine.
Cut the apple in small pieces, drain the raisins from the water and add them into the mixture together with lemon zest; mix with a rubber spatula until combined.
Transfer the batter in the prepared muffin tin filling them up to 3/4.
Sprinkle the surface with Honey Hoops and bake for about 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the muffins comes out clean.
Let them cool completely before sprinkling with confectioners' sugar and serving.
You can substitute oil with melted butter (40g).
This recipe is highly customisable: you can substitute apple with other fruits and Honey Hoops with whatever cereal you have on hand!
If you make it let me know! :)
