Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal Muffins

002

If you like your muffins to taste like cupcakes, please move along.  There is very little sugar in this recipe and it’s just perfect for me.  But I’m not a huge fan of sweet.  There is lots of wholesome goodness packed in a small package. I’ve topped them with a little butter and they are fantastic…but they’re pretty tasty all by themselves.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Combine the following dry ingredients in large bowl, mix well

1 ¼ cup rolled oats
1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
2 Tablespoons ground flax seed
1/3 cup chopped walnuts

Combine the following wet ingredients in a separate bowl, whisk to combine.

1/2 cup milk (I used 2%)
6 oz vanilla greek yogurt (should be @ ½ cup) – I used an 5.3 oz individual Chobani cup
1/3 cup brown sugar
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
2 Tablespoons honey or maple syrup
2 eggs

Sauté the following in skillet until the apples are soft.

1/4 cup organic coconut oil
1 apple, chopped
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

Add the sautéed apples and wet ingredients in with the dry and stir to combine. Don’t overmix.

Spoon batter into lined or greased muffin tins (I used mini muffin tins).

Bake for 15-20 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
