Here’s our top recipe for muffins to slip into schoolbags – no eggs, peanuts or tree nuts. They’re not too sweet, perfect for filling hungry bellies. What sweetening there is comes from applesauce, fresh-squeezed orange juice and our famous dried sliced cranberries with no added sugar. They’re fibre-rich, filling and nutritious. (And what kid would complain about eating a muffin that tastes like orange juice? )
