Healthy Apple Muffins

Healthy Apple Muffins

After a couple busy weeks with work and family visits I had a weekend home with my little man. This weekend he requested muffins, specifically brown muffins. Although I am pretty sure he confused brown with chocolate, I none the less went on the search for brown muffins. I found this great recipe at http://cookieandkate.com/2011/apple-oatmeal-muffins/ and tweaked it just a bit. Ingredients:

1 cup whole wheat flour

1/4 cup almond flour

1 1/2 cups old-fashioned oats

1 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp baking soda

dash of salt

1 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp pumpkin spice

dash of nutmeg, cloves, ginger, cardamon

1 cup of my yummy applesauce

1/2 cup coconut or almond milk with juice of half a lemon (or buttermilk)

heaping 1/3 cup brown sugar

2 tbs melted coconut oil

1 large egg, lightly beaten

1/2 tsp vanilla

2-3 sweet apples, chopped

In a large bowl combine flour, oats, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and all spices. In a separate bowl combine applesauce, buttermilk, sugar, oil, egg and vanilla extract. Make a well in the dry ingredients and pour in your applesauce mixture. Stir until just moist.

Fold in the chopped apples and optional nuts. Fill muffin cups ⅔ to ¾ full. Bake for 16-18 minutes and enjoy!!
