Preheat oven 180ºC fan forced.

  1. Peel and cut apples into quarters, then remove cores. Cut 1 apple into small cubes to equal 1 cup. Then cut the other apple into thin slices to go on top of teacakes.
  2. Beat egg whites and sugar in a large mixing bowl for 1 minute using an electric beater.
  3. Blend apple sauce with bicarb then add to bowl and combine using a wooden spoon.
  4. Combine milk with melted margarine then add to bowl with almond meal, vanilla essence, cinnamon and diced apple.
  5. Add sifted flour and gently fold until flour has blended into mix. DO NOT BEAT as this will make the cakes tough.
  6. Coat a 12-cup muffin tin with cooking spray, then spoon mixture evenly into each cup. Arrange 3 slices of apple on top of each cake. Combine extra cinnamon and extra sugar together then sprinkle evenly over the sliced apple.
  7. Bake 25-30 minutes or until firm to touch in centre. Leave to rest for a few minutes then place onto a wire rack to cool.

NOTE: You might like to spread a little Flora Light margarine on teacakes, this adds 2.4g fat per teaspoon.

Variation: Replace apples with fresh pears or frozen berries.

Suitable to be frozen.

Dietitian's tip

About a sixth of the carbohydrates and most of the sugar in this recipe is derived from the apples. Research has shown that eating a whole apple as a snack will keep hunger pangs away for longer than apple juice and you are less likely to overeat if you have a whole apple with your meal. Have this mini teacake occasionally, however, eat whole apples often.
