    Piccolo’s Apple and Apricot Muffins

    These deliciously moreish apple and apricot muffins are quick to make and ideal for snacks, in the lunchbox or tied up with a ribbon as a present. We have used our Piccolo Apple & Apricot puree in these, but you can remove and add another 50ml of milk or a heaped tablespoon of yoghurt.

    Tip: You can also use different fruit, substitute the Apple & Apricot puree and fruit for our Peach & Apple puree and some chunks of tinned peach.

    Storage: Store in an airtight container for 2 – 3 days in the fridge. As the muffins are fairly moist, if you want to keep them for longer, please freeze.
