Breakfast: Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal Muffins

7 May

I need these to come back in my life. They are the most amazing muffins. Crisp apples and lovely cinnamon mixed with textured oatmeal make for an amazing muffin. Seriously, go make them right now. You’ll thank me.

I was surprised when I looked for a recipe for “Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal Muffins” however. I looked, searched, Googled and ventured in to the great unknown but there were only one or two recipes that even remotely seemed like what I was looking for. I took a chance on one from a blog and it definitely paid off. Follow along! The recipe is at the end.

1) Chop apples. I used 2-3 because I like my muffins to be mostly fruit. 😉

Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal Muffins
  • 1½ cups whole wheat flour (used white flour but only because I need to restock on whole wheat!)
  • ½ cup rolled oats (Because of the lack of wheat flour, I upped this to 1 cup oats and used 1 cup white flour)
  • 1/3 cup light-brown sugar, packed
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • cinnamon to taste
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2/3 cup milk or water
  • 1/2 cup oil
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1½-2 cups chopped apples (I used Galas which allow the apples to retain a little crunch even after cooked)
Directions
  1. Pre-heat oven to 400°F and grease a muffin pan.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together flour, oats, sugars, cinnamon, baking powder, and salt.
  3. In another bowl, stir together milk/water, eggs, oil, and vanilla until blended.
  4. Make a well in center of dry ingredients and add wet ingredients, stirring just to combine.
  5. Stir in apple chunks.
  6. Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups and bake for 15-20 minutes or until a muffins pass the toothpick test.
  7. Allow muffins to cool on a wire rack for five minutes before removing from pan to continue cooling.
