2 tsp baking powder
2 tsp cinnamon
3 apples, skin left on, diced plus one apple, thinly sliced for decoration
Preheat the oven to 180ºC/350ºF/Gas 4.
Line a 12 muffin tin with muffin papers or use silicon mini loaf baking trays.
Whisk together the eggs, honey, yoghurt, melted butter and vanilla extract in a large mixing bowl.
Add the sifted flour and baking powder, ground almonds, cinnamon and walnuts. Mix until just combined. Fold through the diced apple.
Spoon the mixture into the prepared tins and top each with a slice of apple.
