Apple, oat and sultana muffins


Did you have a nice weekend? We went camping for the first time as a family. We’ve camped before, just Hubby and I, but this was the first time with kids. I’ll share more about it later on, but it was fun. The weather didn’t play nice for most of it, but I’ll eventually forgive it. I’ll just have to give it the silent treatment for a while.

I’ve learned in life there are there are two types of people in the world; those who like fruit in their food and those that don’t. For example my sister would never eat these muffins. She doesn’t do hot cross buns or anything with sultanas in them. My friend Carly explained to me over lunch the other day that fruits does not belong in food. She passionately explained that sultanas in savoury food is just not on.

But I kinda like it. I love chewy, dried-fruity anything. I’m hoping to raise Luella to be the same {I fear I didn’t start Lacey early enough and she now sits on the fence, sometimes she’ll jump in and others she’ll turn up her nose}.

Fruit in food: Fine with you, or does it just not belong?
