This muffin is right up my street as I absolutely love the taste and smell of cinnamon. These muffins smell amazing as you start by cooking the raisins, apple and spices together in a pan filling the kitchen with a lovely aroma. The muffins themselves are very moist from the juicy raisins and grated apples. Perfect anytime of the day.





  1. In a medium sized saucepan, add the raisins, boiling water, dairy free spread, cater sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, ground ginger and grated apple.
  2. Bring to the boil and allow to simmer for 12 minutes, remove from the heat and allow to cool
  3. Preheat the oven to 190 oC
  4. Bet the egg into the cooled mixture and stir in the flour and xanthan gum
  5. Spoon into muffin tins and bake in the centre of the oven for 25 minutes
  6. Allow to cool for 5 minutes then remove from the muffin tins
