Muffins designed to trick children into eating some fruit and vegetables. Children think they are having a delicious, moist chocolate treat. In fact they are eating low fat muffins containing apples and beetroot. And when do you confess your deception? Perhaps at their twenty-first birthday party? Or when they leave home, when you give them the recipe? Or if there are other younger children still being deceived, perhaps this is best shared privately. Like the truth about Father Christmas, the Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy. Adapted from a recipe on the Simply Great Meals Recipe Club website.
