  • 3 mixing bowls
  • 12-hole muffin tin


  • 100 g raisins
  • 2 chia eggs [2 Tbsp ground chia seeds + 6 Tbsp of water] or 2 beaten organic eggs
  • 200 g cooking apples (or Granny Smith)
  • 125 g plain flour
  • 125 g wholemeal spelt flour
  • 150 g golden caster sugar
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 75 ml vegetable oil
  • 50 ml non-dairy milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


  • 50 g dairy-free butter
  • 50 g demerara sugar
  • 50 g plain flour
  • 40 g jumbo porridge oats
  • 1 tsp cinnamon


  • Boil some water in a kettle. Put the raisins in a bowl. Soak the raisins in boiling water.
  • Prepare the chia eggs by mixing 2 Tbsp of ground chia seeds with 6 Tbsp of water. Set aside for 10 mins.
  • Preheat the oven to Fan 180°C / 200°C/400°F/Gas 6.
  • Place 12 large paper baking cases in a muffin tin.
  • Melt the dairy-free butter in a pan. When melted, mix in the other crumble ingredients. Set aside.
  • Sieve the flours, golden caster sugar, baking powder, bicarbonate soda, cinnamon and salt in the large bowl.
  • Whisk the chia eggs with the oil, vanilla and non-dairy milk. Mix well until there are no lumps and all is well combined.
  • Add the chia mixture to the dry ingredients. Mix well.
  • Drain the raisins. Grate the apples on the coarse side of a cheese grater. Mix the drained raisins and grated apples into the dough until all is well combined.
  • Carefully spoon the mixture into each baking case in the muffin tin.
  • Top each muffin with some crumble.
  • Place in the oven for around 20-25mins until golden. Insert a skewer to check the muffins are cooked. The skewer should come out clean.
