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)
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.
