1 3/4 cups plain flour
1 cup soft brown sugar
2 sachets (about 40 grams each) apple flavoured instant porridge
2 tbsp olive oil spread (or margarine)
1 tsp bi-carb soda
1 tsp mixed spice
1 jar (250 grams) unsweetened apple sauce
2 tbsp canola oil
2 medium eggs
1 medium green apple
The good thing about this recipe is that it's dairy free - the apple sauce reduces the fatty content that would be there if you used butter, and there's also no milk, so that keeps the dairy-free peeps happy. You can also use wholemeal flour to be super healthy.
Total prep and cooking time: 30 - 40 minutes
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius (I have a fan forced oven, so I lowered it to about 170 degrees) Mix all the dry ingredients together. Take one cup of the mixed dry ingredients and set it aside – you’ll use this later on. In the main bowl of mixed dry ingredients, rub the olive oil spread in with your fingers (you can see the blob of it below) – there isn’t a lot, so it won’t mix through the whole thing, but just massage it enough so that it separates a bit.
