Healthy Apple Muffins Recipe

Hello Lil’ Luna readers!  Jenn here from Clean and ScentsibleI’m so excited to be back here today on Kristyn’s amazing blog sharing one of our back to school breakfast ideas…
If your house is anything like ours, back to school time means the return of crazy mornings and busy after schools.   I am trying not to get stuck in the “cereal every morning for breakfast” rut this year and have been trying to come up with some other easy and healthy breakfast options.  These muffins are not too sweet and are really quite filling.  They are perfect for breakfast with some fruit and a glass of milk and also work great for a quick after school snack as you are running out the door for those kids’ activities!
  • 2 eggs
  • 2/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 2/3 cup honey 
  • 1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup rolled oats {quick or old fashioned}  + 3 tbsp for topping
  • 1 1/4 cup crushed bran cereal
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 large Granny Smith apple, peeled and coarsely grated 
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar

 To Make

  • Preheat the oven to 375F and line your muffin tin with paper liners
  • Mix the eggs, oil, milk, honey, yogurt, and vanilla together in a large mixing bowl until well blended.  Add 1 cup of the rolled oats and the crushed bran.  Let soak for 10 minutes.
  • In another bowl, mix together flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt.  Add the wet ingredients in and mix until blended {the batter will be quite thick}.  Stir in the grated apple.
  • Scoop the batter into the muffin tin and fill up almost to the top {they rise very little}.  
  • Mix brown sugar and the remaining oats together and sprinkle on top.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes {until a toothpick inserted into the center of the muffin comes out clean}.  Makes 16.
  • Serve warm with butter or jam.  We just refrigerate these and warm them up in the microwave for 10-20 seconds in the morning.
