So you may have noticed from my last post that I’m trying to incorporate some healthier food options into my diet lately, which is where the inspiration for these apple muffins came from! Now don’t get me wrong, I’m most definitely still working on traditional sweet treats that you’ll see in the very near future but it’s nice to switch it up here and there. Options, ya know?! And balance, which is my word to live by in 2018!
These muffins couldn’t be simpler to make! Literally throw 90% of the ingredients in a food processor and let it do all the hard work. In no time you’ll be savoring these yummy apple muffins. They may not look the most exciting in pictures, but your house will be smelling ohhh sooo good!
I’ve made a few test batches of these recently and these muffins make a great quick breakfast option. But I also find myself reaching for them in the afternoon when I typically get the urge for a little something sweet. Let me know what you think if you give these healthier muffins a try!
Also, send any other ideas for things you’d like to see on the blog in the future!
- 2 cups old fashioned oats
- ½ cup all purpose flour
- 1 cup unsweetened apple sauce
- ½ cup plain greek yogurt
- ½ cup real maple syrup
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- pinch nutmeg
- pinch salt
- 1 medium apple, small diced
- ½ cup pecans, chopped
- Preheat oven to 375°F. Lightly grease a standard size muffin tin with cooking spray, about 12-14 muffin cups.
- In a large food processor, pulse oats until a course flour starts to form. It's ok if there are still large pieces of oats.
- Add all other ingredients from flour to salt into food processor and mix together until well combined. Scraping down the bowl as necessary.
- Transfer mixture to a separate large clean bowl and stir in diced apple and nuts.
- Fill each muffin cup ¾ full with batter. Bake for about 15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
**Can also sub walnuts for the pecans.
