    • 230g chopped dried fruit mix
    • 60ml Biona Organic apple juice
    • 60g baking spread softened
    • 2 tablespoons Biona Organic Coconut oil
    • 130g Coconut sugar
    • 2 large eggs or flax eggs
    • 270g all-purpose flour
    • 2 teaspoons baking powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 160ml whole milk or plant milk
    • 35g pearl sugar



    Place the dried fruit and apple juice in a large bowl and stir. Leave to soak.


    Preheat the oven to 375°F. Line a muffin tin with 12 paper liners, or use 12 free-standing mini panettone cups as we have.


    Place the spread, coconut oil and coconut sugar in a medium mixing bowl.


    Add the eggs, flour, baking powder, milk and salt. Mix until well combined.


    Stir in the fruit and apple juice mixture.


    Spoon the batter into the prepared liners or cups. Sprinkle the tops with pearl sugar. Bake for 18-20 minutes, or until the muffins are golden on top and a toothpick tester inserted into the centres of the muffins comes out clean.


    Transfer the muffins to a wire rack and let them cool.


    Serve warm or at room temperature.
