Easy Festive Apple and Mincemeat Streusel Muffins are simply made with ingredients you probably already have in your larder, they are ideal to serve for a Christmas breakfast or as a sweet treat at any time of day. I think you’ll love them!
Here’s how I made the Festive Apple and Mincemeat Streusel Muffins
Put the flour, oats, sugar, and cinnamon in a large bowl and mix them together.
In another bowl, beat the egg and stir in the milk and oil, then gently stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until just combined.
I used my Easy Slow Cooker Mincemeat with Ginger to make the muffins, but if you don’t have homemade mincemeat then you can get some really good mincemeat in groceries and supermarkets
Add the mincemeat and the chopped apple and gently fold into the muffin mixture. I used windfall apples from my apple tree, but any firm eating apple would be suitable.
Divide the mixture between the 12 muffin cases and fill to the top, then sprinkle 1 tsp of the Streusel mixture onto each of the muffins and bake.
