Apple, Walnut & Sesame Muffins


Apple Walnut & Sesame Muffins

Here’s a healthy snack recipe that can also be enjoyed when you need to grab a quick breakfast on the go. These muffins provide a good source of protein and healthy fats including anti-inflammatory omega-3. I like to use minimal maple syrup with these muffins to keep the natural sugars low – I find the apples are sweet enough, but experiment and see how you go. The less natural sugar you consume, the less you crave it!
