Saturday morning means everyone is home and we get to be lazy as long as we have nothing going on in the morning. It also means helpers in the kitchen! This morning we decided to make these apple oat muffins. If you would like to see the original recipe you can find it at Running with Spoons. I like these because not only are they on the healthy side, but they taste really good. I sometimes find it hard to make healthy muffins that the kids like, but these apple oat muffins are enjoyed by us all. It might look like a lot of ingredients, but don’t be alarmed they are pretty easy to make and the outcome is rewarding. I hope you enjoy my pictures of my little helpers who made their way into the kitchen today, helping me add all the ingredients together.
- 1 cup old fashioned rolled oats
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 1/2 tsp. baking soda
- 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
- 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
- pinch of salt
- 1 egg
- 1 cup vanilla Greek yogurt
- 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- 1 apple, peeled, cored, and grated
- 1/2 cup reduced sugar craisins
Preheat the oven to 350. Spray a muffin tin with nonstick spray. In a mixing bowl combine the flour, oats, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. Set aside. In another mixing bowl, beat egg, stir in the greek yogurt, applesauce, brown sugar, vanilla and grated apple. Mix the wet ingredients in with the dry and mix until combined. Add the craisins. Divide the batter evenly into the muffin tin, it should be just enough for all 12 spots. Sprinkle a little oats on the top of each. Bake for 20 minutes. Let the muffins cool for 5 minutes and then transfer to a wired rack to cool completely.
