Healthy homemade fruit explosion muffins
*This post contains affiliate links.
You know those really tasty muffins from Tim Hortons? You know, the ones that are loaded with fruit and jam? Thos are fruit explosion muffins that I’m referring too and they are sooo good. But, they are loaded with sugar, and they are not good for you at all. Well, except maybe for the fruit. But then again, the fruit is not organic either. So, how about some healthy homemade fruit explosion muffins instead – made with natural (unrefined) sugar?
Homemade apple sauce
I had some organic apples that were going bad. They were still edible but getting quite soft. I really don’t like soft apples. I also hate wasting food. I didn’t want to make juice because I did that recently with ‘bad’ apples. I wanted to do something different with these apples. Then I had a great idea. I’ll use them in some healthy homemade fruit explosion muffins. Perfect!
So I made some homemade organic applesauce using my much-loved food processor and I added them to my healthy homemade fruit explosion muffins.
These healthy homemade fruit explosion muffins turned out very well. They are very tasty and, as the title suggests, exploding with fruit. There are three kinds of fruit in these muffins – apples, strawberries (aka organic strawberry jam sweetened with fruit juice) and blueberries. However, although there is plenty of fruit in these healthy homemade fruit explosion muffins, I did find that the addition of more (or other) fruit would have been even better; or perhaps chunks of apples instead (not for me though, I hate cooked apple ;)).
The only (minor) complaint I have about these muffins is that they do not rise as much as I would like. Now, I did open the oven before they were finished because they took longer to bake than expected, so that might have caused them to fall. If not, perhaps next time I could just add more baking powder? I’m not sure and I don’t want to mess with a good recipe. So if you know of a sure solution please let me know and I will be sure to tweak the recipe. Now, speaking of the recipe, let’s get to it.
