Today's Meatless Monday food is nuts.
FRUIT & NUT MUFFINS
To make 12 muffins you'll need:
2 cups self-raising wholemeal flour
1/2 cup mixed nuts (I used almonds, cashews, walnuts)
1/3 cup sultanas
1/4 cup craisins
1/4 cup currants
2 Tablespoons diced prunes (or sub extra sultanas)
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup applesauce
1 Tablespoon ground flax seeds mixed with 3 Tablespoons boiling water
1 cup unsweetened apple juice
In a large mixing bowl combine all the fruit with the sugar, cinnamon and flour. Crush the nuts into small pieces and stir them into the fruit/flour mixture.
Make a well in the center and add the applesauce, flax mixture and the apple juice.
Stir until just combined, don't over stir.
Pour into a lined muffin baking tray and bake in a preheated 180C oven for 20-25 minutes until cooked through.
