NF 'Powerhouse' muffins

OOOOOOOhhhhh you just have to try these muffins!! Super moist, bursting with loads of spices that remind me of.......nope just remind me of eating good food. :) 

Packed with whole flours, pumpkin, sultanas and apples, its no wonder they got devoured as soon as they left the oven at my place ~ I reckon that your family is going to devour them too!

Lets get to the recipe right!

MAKES: 12 large muffins          COOK TEMP: 170 deg

COOK TIME: 15-20 mins


  • 2 cups            wholemeal spelt flour
  • 1/2cup + 1 Tb honey
  • 1 Tb                baking powder(not the double acting type)
  • 2 tsp              bi-carb soda
  • 2 tsp              gr  cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp           gr ginger
  • 3/4 cup          pureed apple(apple sauce can be used but make sure it has no added sugar)
  • 1/2 cup           olive oil or coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup           grated granny smith apple
  • 2 cups            grated pumpkin
  • 1/2 cup          sultanas
  • 1/2 cup          flaked coconut
  • 1/2 cup          roasted pepitas


  1. Line muffins trays with either silicone molds or paper liners
  2. Into a large bowl add the flour, baking powder, bi-carb & spices
  3. Whisk until combined evenly
  4. Add in the wet ingredients
  5. Whisk until just combined - if you whisk too vigorously the spelt flour will start to form too many strands giving you a chewy hard muffin!
  6. Gently fold in the pumpkin, apple, sultana's and coconut flakes.
  7. Spoon the mix evenly between the 12 cups
  8. Place in the oven
  9. Bake for 10 mins, turn around and bake for another 5-10 mins until toothpick comes out clean.
  10. Cool and try not to eat them all in 2 days :)
