Apple Crumble Muffins

Apples are so cheap right now and really versatile! Use them in this high fibre apple crumble muffin recipe which is packed with natural sweetness from fruit, and loads of fibre. This recipe still contains some sugar, however using brown sugar which is rich in flavour tends to mean that we don't need as much to achieve the same sweetness. You could swap the sugar for honey if you prefer the taste.
