Apple Oatmeal Muffins

This recipe is based on this Apple Oatmeal Quickbread recipe. I made just a few changes.

Apple Oatmeal Muffins

1 cup non-fat Greek Yogurt, plain
1 cup whole oats
2 eggs
1/4 cup oil
1/2 cup turbinado sugar
2/3 cup white whole wheat flour
1/3 cup whole wheat flour
1/3 cup unbleached white flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ginger
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 large apple (about 2 cups diced apple – peeled or not, your choice)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Prepare a standard size muffin tin. You can line with muffin cups, or simply coat with some non-stick spray.

Mix together oats and yogurt. Set aside and allow to sit for 5 or more minutes.

Whisk together eggs, oil, turbinado sugar. Set aside.

Whisk together flours, soda, spices, and salt.

Dice apple and add to yogurt/oat mix.  Stir in the egg mixture and combine well.  Add dry ingredients and stir until well incorporated, but be careful to not overmix. This batter will be stiff.

Portion equally into prepared muffin tins and bake in preheated oven for 25-30 minutes.

Allow to cool briefly in muffin tins, then transfer to a cooling rack.

Enjoy warm!

Wholesome and comforting, warm and spicy.
