GLUTEN FREE Apple and Blackberry healthy muffinz

 ohhhh what to do with my bumper crop of berries!!?! There were so many recipes these juicy sweet berries would've made special, but recently I have been finding myself needing a portable yummy snack for my break times in the school staff room.
Whilst All my colleages dunk their biscuits in the tea and coffees after a testing morning of educating little'uns, I sit there nibbling my fruit ( not that fruits bad! fruits good for you kids, eat it!) ... but treats just satisfy that 11o'clock sweet tooth snack attack sooo much more. And in any case this is a muffin that healthy and jam packed full to the brim with goodness.
Made from soya yoghurt instead of any fat these muffins are moist and packed full of a deliously sweet berry flavour, whole blackberries and chunks of cooking apple add texture and an extra tart hit in every bite.
