Nutritional information (per serve)
Instructions and steps:
Step 1 Preheat oven to 180ºC. Grease a 12-hole muffin pan. Pour orange juice into a saucepan. Heat over medium heat. Add apple, banana and raisins. Simmer, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes or until apples are soft. Allow to cool.
Step 2 Sift flour, baking powder and cinnamon into a large bowl. In small bowl, combine egg and oil. Add walnuts, egg mixture and cooled apple mixture to flour. Combine, but don’t overmix. (If batter is too dry, add more juice; if too wet, add rolled oats.)
Step 3 Spoon batter into prepared pan. Top each muffin with a walnut. Bake for 15–20 minutes or until a skewer inserted into centre comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack.

Audrey says: "These muffins were my weekend experiment. My dad is diabetic so there's no sugar in this recipe, but for my mum, I sprinkle a bit of sugar on the top."
