They specially loved decorating them and you can see the delight on their faces.

For the muffins you will need:

4 cups self raising flour
1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
juice and grated zest of half a lemon
1 cup coconut
4 tablespoons olive oil
4 eggs
4 tablespoons honey or stevia or 2 of each

Sieve the flour and mix all the dry ingredients together. In a separate container mix all the liquid ingredients together. Use a metal spoon to fold in the wet ingredients into the dry ones. Prepare muffin cases on a try. Spoon or pipe the batter into the cases. Bake in a pre heated oven at 170C for 20 minutes.

Allow the muffins to cool before decorating them.

To avoid more processed sugar in the form of sugar I brushed the muffins with warm honey

To avoid processed sugar in the form of icing, I brushed the top of the muffins with warm honey and allowed the kids to decorate them to their liking.

Happily decorating and so colorful :)
