      • 180g plain flour
      • 100g ground almonds
      • 2 teaspoons baking powder
      • ½ teaspoon sea salt
      • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
      • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
      • 60ml Biona Organic Agave Syrup
      • 80ml Biona Organic Extra Virgin olive oil
      • 2 organic eggs
      • 80ml almond milk or rice milk
      • 180g blueberries or finely diced apple
      • 80g icing sugar
      • 2 teaspoons water



      Preheat your oven to 160°C (140°C fan). Line a muffin tin with cases.


      Combine flour, salt, cinnamon and baking powder into a bowl.


      Add olive oil, vanilla, agave syrup, eggs and milk. Mix through until combined.


      Gently fold in the blueberries or apples.


      Spoon into 12 large prepared muffins tins.


      Bake for 45 minutes or until firm to touch.


      Remove from the oven and cool completely.


      Place the icing sugar in a small bowl. Gradually stir in the water to make a thick icing. Place in a small sealable plastic bag. Cut 1 corner off the bag to make a small hole. Pipe a cross onto each muffin and set aside until the icing is set.


      Serve and enjoy!
