Delicious and healthy apple oatmeal muffins recipe that the family is sure to love. Great grab & go breakfast, also perfect with your weekend coffee on the porch.
A neglected Granny Smith apple on the counter, led to the making of this Apple Oatmeal Muffins Recipe. As I diced it up I thought about the yumminess of apples with brown sugar and butter, and decided the classic flavors would be just the thing for some oatmeal muffins (we all know I’m a big fan of oatmeal in baking).
Always have muffin liners with these eco-friendly reusable baking cups…
The resulting recipe yielded 11 medium sized apple oatmeal muffins, and would probably make about 6 jumbos. Despite using just 1 Granny Smith apple, due to the small batter batch there are plenty of diced apple pieces in each muffin. I prefer the smaller batch size, since I don’t really need a lot of muffins hanging around.
