Soft fruits can be a bit of a pain, because no sooner have you bought them, they’re going off. So why not put your slightly squishy plums to good use with these spiced plum muffins, which are ideal for an 11 o’clock snack or make a tasty pud (especially while still warm from the oven). They’re also super easy!
Pre-heat the oven to 180C.
- In a mixing bowl, add the flour, ground almonds, ginger, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda and xylitol and stir through.
- Add the agave syrup, vegetable oil and soya yoghurt and mix – but not to thoroughly because you don’t want to overwork the mixture. Stir through the chopped plums.
- In a muffin tray, place 12 muffin cases and spoon the mixture to evenly fill the cases.
- Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes until cooked through. Pop a skewer through one of the muffins and if it comes out clean, they’re cooked.
