There is nothing better than sinking your teeth into a warm, delicious muffin with a cup of tea, at the end of the day.

Granola Muffin Nutrition Content


These scrumptious muffins are filled with the goodness of apples, dates, and sultanas which are high in fibre.

Be careful of the granola you choose.  Most store-bought granola is high in sugar and can contain unhealthy fats and oils. They can also be packed with fillers.  It is important to read the ingredients carefully and choose the brand that you deem to be the healthiest. 

Homemade granola can be the healthiest option and is often very easy to make. Most of the store-bought stuff is high in sugar, contains unhealthy fats and oils, and can be packed full of fillers and unnecessary ingredients.

Adapted from Donna Hay


  • 2 ½ cups of self-raising flour
  • ¾ cup caster sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup fresh dates (which will be about 12), pitted and chopped
  • ½ cup sultanas
  • 1 ½ cup granola
  • ½ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • ¾ cups milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 4 small granny smith apples, peeled and grated
  • Maple syrup to serve


  •     Preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F). Place the flour, sugar, cinnamon, date, sultanas and 1 cup (125g) of the granola in a large bowl and mix to combine.
  •     Add the oil, milk, eggs, vanilla and apple and mix until just combined.
  •     Divide the mixture between 12 x ½-cup capacity (125ml) muffin tins lined with paper cases and top with the remaining granola. Cook for 28–30 minutes or until cooked when tested with a skewer.
  •     Remove from the tins and set aside to cool on a wire rack. Drizzle with the maple syrup to serve.
