Preheat oven to 190 C / Gas mark 5. Lightly grease one 12-cup muffin tin, or line with paper muffin cups.
Lightly beat egg whites.
In a separate bowl, mix dry ingredients thoroughly.
In a separate bowl, mix together milk, oil, honey and apples. Gently fold in egg whites to the wet mixture. Add the wet mixture to the dry ingredients. Fold together until just moistened. Batter will be lumpy.
Fill greased muffin tins two-thirds full. Bake about 20 minutes until lightly browned.
I was some what nervous about making this recipe after reading the reviews, so I made a few changes first. I added 1 tbs of baking soda, 1 tbs of cinnamon and 5 tbs of honey. They taste just fine and had no problems rising. I did find they were not as firm inside as I would have liked, so I think I will use dried apples next time. - 02 Feb 2013
