  1. A favourite recipes for a couple of years. I sometimes use 1 cup of flour and a cup of bran or whole meal, and a bit more milk. Always add a teaspoon of cinnamon to the mix. The whanau love them and they freeze well.

  2. I have now made 2 successful gluten free apple variation batches as all the rhubarb got used up on the muffins!!
    Used 1 cup normal gluten free flour and 3/4 cup organic buckwheat flour and 1/4 cup organic cornstarch along with 1/2 cup almond meal… and 2 cups of diced apple. Also added 1 teaspoon of organic vanilla essence and sprinkled coconut sugar and nutmeg on the top.
    Cooked for 20 minutes on fanbake at 150’C
    This mix even makes an amazing cake with fresh apple slices on bottom of cake tin and cook for a bit longer, then get only 6 muffins…
    Oh my… SO EASY and delicious!! :-)
