Homemade muffins make a great lunchbox addition, a perfect after-school snack or a lovely morning tea treat. These apple blueberry muffins are healthy and delicious, as 10-year-old British expat Olivia Thacker explains. “This is an easy recipe to make, and I like that the apples inside the muffins go soft and juicy in the oven. The dried blueberries also give the muffins a bit of crunch!”
