4.) For your muffin mix, add all your dry ingredients then your wet ingredients and using a whisk, mix vigorously.

5.) Line a muffin tray with muffin cases and check on your apples. they should have turned a golden rainbow of colours, with some more caramelised than others.

6.) Add approx 3/4 of the sauteed apples to the mix and stir them in.
