Warming spices, apples and syrupy glaze… What screams autumn more than this combination as we head into winter? These easy muffins are made in your Ninja Kitchen blender ready to whack in the oven, topped with a creamy frosting and caramelised spiced apples for the finishing touch.

  • 75g coconut sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 2 tbsp flaxseeds + 4 tablespoons water (leave for 10 minutes)
  • 200g cooked, unsweetened apples
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp almond milk
  • For The Frosting
  • 200g Greek yoghurt, Quark or coconut yoghurt
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • For The Caramelised Apples
  • 2 tsp coconut oil
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp coconut sugar
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2-3 apples, chopped
Prep Time


  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C.

  2. Place all of the muffin ingredients into your Ninja Kitchen blender and whizz up for at least 1 minute until a batter is formed.

  3. Spoon this between a 6 hole muffin tin, to reach the top. Bake for 15-20 minutes until risen and golden. Leave to cool.

  4. Beat together the frosting ingredients and chill in the fridge until needed.

  5. Meanwhile prepare the caramelised fruit: Heat the coconut oil, maple syrup and coconut sugar in a non-stick pan on a high heat. Throw in the apples and cinnamon and cook on a lower heat for 6-7 minutes until softened.

  6. When ready to assemble, top each muffin with some of the frosting then spoon over some caramelised apple. Scatter over walnuts or almonds – and enjoy!

My love of healthy food was originally inspired by my commitment to fitness and wellbeing. But that's not to say I don't like a treat from time to time.

Despite being labelled 'healthy', many of the recipes I came across relied heavily on processed sugar and fat - which is why I decided to take matters into my own hands.
