  • 1 earl grey tea bag (Click Here to Purchase)
  • 80 grams of dried apples, chopped finely
  • ½ cup rolled oats
  • 1 medium zucchini, grated, squeezed lightly
  • 10 scoops vanilla ENSURE
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
  • 1 cup wholemeal self-raising flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons mixed spice
  • 1 tablespoon linseeds (flaxseeds)
  • 1 tablespoon pepitas (pumpkin seed kernels)
  • 2/3 cup plain yogurt, to serve


Hey there! Let's get baking. First up, preheat your oven to 200°C. Then, grab a 3/4-cup (180ml) Texas muffin tray and line 4 of the holes with either non-stick cafe-style muffin cases or squares of baking paper. Easy peasy, right? Now let's make some delicious muffins!

Boil a cup of water and let a tea bag steep for 5 minutes. Meanwhile, combine apples, oats, and tea in a bowl. Let it sit for 20 minutes until most of the liquid is absorbed. Add zucchini, a mixture of 8 scoops of Ensure with ½ cup of water, an egg, and some maple syrup. Stir well.

Sift the flour, baking powder, and spices into a big bowl. Remember to return the husks to the bowl too! Next, make a well in the center and add the zucchini mixture and half of the linseeds and pepitas. The mixture may seem thick, but that's normal. Lastly, spoon the mixture equally into paper cases and sprinkle the rest of the linseeds and pepitas on top. 

Let's bake some delicious muffins! 30 minutes in the oven or until a skewer poked in the center comes out clean should do the trick. And if they start to burn on top, don't worry, just cover them with some foil. After they're done, let them hang out for 5 minutes on the counter before transferring them to a wire rack to cool. 

Combine yogurt with two scoops of Ensure in a small bowl and serve it with warm muffins. You'll love the creamy texture and great taste. Plus, it's a satisfying and healthy way to start your day!
