Time for Apple Oatmeal Muffins

September 21, 2015   7 Comments

My backyard has 14 apple trees and guess what? This is a great year for apples. Y’all want to come over and pick some? (not kidding)

Fall Apple Muffins

I decided to make an apple oatmeal muffin because it sounded good and my children are always demanding muffins. Of course, the ones they want are made with twice the sugar and three times the fat and white flour. BUT, they like these - enough to stop bothering me for muffins.

These are fast to make – just one bowl – and if you are swimming in apples – you can freeze them for later consumption. I eat one with my afternoon coffee as a treat.

They are a little too sweet to have as the only food for breakfast. I would, of course, pair them with an apple and peanut butter since all I can think about is apples.

I'll have to try these...but maybe I'll either stop by your back yard for a little apple picking or wait until we get decent apples again down here in Louisiana!

The recipe only call for 1 Apple?

I have been making lots of applesauce with my apples, thus having surplus for this recipe. Both use up apples and are freezable. Have also been baking in the oven (making chips). Bought your book - great ideas! Thanks so much!

What happens if you omit the applesauce?

I don't peel my apples and the come out just fine. Less work, more vitamins and fiber.

Loved. My batter was dry so I added one more egg. They were so yummy and not too sweet. A keeper!

I finally had a chance to make these today. So yummy! I used spelt flour in place of the wheat flour (more bone friendly for those of us concerned about that.) I did stir well the chopped apples into the dry ingredients BEFORE adding the liquids. Also, I mixed the liquids in a separate bowl before gently stirring them into the flour/apple bowl. They turned out perfectly. I will definitely be making these again.
