Apples are now known to be very good for you. Although low in Vitamin C apples are packed with antioxidants that are said to reduce the risk of colon cancer, prostate cancer and lung cancer. Apples are also thought to help with heart disease, weight loss and controlling cholesterol.

Raisins are healthy too. They are a great source of energy and with the high potassium content in raisins they are good for maintaining proper blood pressure. The high fiber content and the presence of tartaric acid helps regulate the colon. Like apples, raisins are also full of antioxidants that help protect the heart, prevent cancers and encourages weight loss.

With the addition of bran, wheat germ, wholemeal flour and honey, instead of sugar, these apple and raisin muffins are really healthy!
