  • 2 eggs
  • 2/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 2/3 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup plain yogurt or vanilla yogurt
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup rolled oats + 3 tbsp for topping (quick or old fashioned)
  • 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


  • 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.
