I have been on the hunt for a perfect apple muffin! I'm not sure why. But I have finally found the perfect apple muffin!
Anyhow, here is the muffin I found. It has NO butter, NO oil, Whole Wheat Flour, and very little sugar!
cup rolled oats
cup whole wheat flour
tablespoon baking powder
tablespoon cinnamon (or more, if you like) **I used 1 tbs, and it was tooooo much... I'll cut down to 1/2 tbs next time**
cup applesauce (no sugar added!)
cup soy milk (plain or vanilla work well) **I used normal 0% Milk**
apple (make sure it's baking safe) **I used 1 1/2 apples... b/c I like apples :-) **
cup walnuts, chopped into chunks
Set oven to 350 degrees.
Dice your apple ahead of time. Peel it first.
Thoroughly mix dry ingredients (oats through sugar) in a large bowl.
Mix the mashed banana, applesauce, and soymilk (I do the banana and applesauce first, then kind of whip in the soymilk).
Mix the wet into the dry and toss in the nuts and apple
The batter should be rising, very fluffy and wet. Scoop it into paper linings in a muffin tray or a greased tin. **The recipe says the batter should rise... but mine didn't. Just FYI**
Bake for about 15 minutes, but try to take out as soon as they look done (over cooking makes them a little bit harder, but still just as tasty). **I baked mine for 13 minutes, and that was enough time!**
