I could be completely satisfied eating these Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal Muffins everyday.
Apples, cinnamon and oats is a classic combination.
All of these flavours come together for a delicious, warming apple muffin that’s perfect for enjoying during the cooler seasons.
I have always enjoyed muffins but have found many of my older recipes are quite sweet. So, I wanted to create a new recipe in these Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal Muffins that are full of good for you ingredients!
Pieces of apple are swirled through batter that comes together easily and chocked full of wholesome ingredients like:
Apples: A sweet but firm apple like ambroisia, pink lady or honey crisp works really well in this recipe.
Oats: Old-fashioned rolled oats are a healthy grain and pair deliciously with the apples, cinnamon and nutmeg.
Maple Syrup: To naturally sweeten these muffins.
You’ll find greek yogurt and extra virgin olive oil in these muffins too. And, the greek yogurt gives these muffins a little boost of protein.
Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal Muffins
Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal Muffins made with wholesome ingredients like oats and apples, and naturally sweetened with maple syrup. Plus, a little protein boost from greek yogurt.
- 1 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 3/4 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/2 cup maple syrup
- 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
- 2 eggs
- 3/4 cup plain greek yogurt
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 apple, diced a firm & crisp apple like ambroisia, pink lady or honey crisp
- extra oats for garnish
Pre heat the oven to 350F.
Line a muffin pan with muffin liners.
Whisk together dry ingredients (flour, oats, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt) in one bowl and set aside.
In a larger bowl, whisk together wet ingredients (maple syrup, olive oil, eggs, yogurt, vanilla extract).
Gently fold the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and stir until just combined. The batter will be thick and that's ok!
Then, stir in the diced apple until just combined.
Divide the muffin batter evenly between the muffin tins and top each muffin with a sprinkle of oats.
Bake for 18-22 minutes until a toothpick comes out of the muffin clean.
These muffins are made for cooler mornings with a warm cup of coffee or tea.
And, just like banana bread, these muffins taste even better the next day! Make a batch of muffins today and enjoy them tomorrow.
