Whole wheat Granola Goji Muffins

Recipe from What's For Lunch, Honey?

Ingredients

100g butter, softened
80g honey
100g goji berries
2 eggs
120g whole wheat flour
1-2 teaspoons baking powder
150g granola, homemade or store bought
200g apples, grated and drizzled with 1 teaspoon lemon juice

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees C. Line a muffin form with paper forms or pieces of baking paper.

  2. In a large bowl whisk honey and softened butter with an electric whisk until creamy. Add the eggs, one at a time making sure each one has been nicely incorporated before adding the next one.

  3. Mix flour, baking powder, goji berries and granola together and then add to the egg-mixture. Using a rubber spatula fold in the dry ingredients.

  4. Add the grated apples and incorporate, then pour the batter into the muffin forms. If some of the goji berries are sticking out gently poke them into the batter so they are covered. They burn easily. Bake in the oven for approx. 30-35 minutes until nice and golden. Alternatively stick a wooden toothpick into the center of a muffin and if it comes out clean the muffins are ready.

  5. Serve these muffins warm with some butter and a dollop of my caramelized quince jam.
