Winter Spice Muffins
Staying home and keeping cosy at the moment it feels like the right time to spice up our baking with these Winter Spice Muffins. With the wonderful warming scent of cinnamon and packed full of carrots, courgettes and apples they are a nutritious choice for your lunchbox. Baking a batch of these at the start of the week means that we always have something to pop in our lunchbox or grab when we’re off for a walk with the kids in the evenings and weekends. With a host of lovely slow release energy from seeds and oats they’ll keep you going when you need them to.
