If you’ve ever made my Banana Bread, you’ll love this recipe too. They use the same base ingredients but the diced apples, cinnamon and oats help it transform into a muffin that deserves it’s own accolades.

I’ve tested this recipe with whole wheat pastry flour and whole wheat flour. Whole wheat pastry flour is my favorite (it’s my favorite in all my baked goods) but the whole wheat flour was good too, just a little dryer. I’ll be testing it with unbleached white flour soon and I’ll update this post.

The oats make these muffins less dessert like and more hearty. The bananas, apples, apple sauce and sugar give it a nice sweetness, but they are not overly sweet. 

I prefer the muffins fresh out of the oven but we’ve exercised self control to enjoy them for a few days and they still taste great!

If you are looking for a breakfast on the go, a mid day snack, or even a healthy dessert, this Apple Oatmeal Muffin is for you! I grabbed one on the way to church on Sunday and didn’t even make a mess! Did you know I’m a messy eater? Thankfully these muffins hold together well. 

Apple Oatmeal Muffins

Ingredients

  • 1 cup apple sauce
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 cup diced apples
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1 1/4 cup whole wheat pastry flour

Do

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Mix apple sauce and sugar together.
  3. Add 2 smashed ripe bananas and stir together.
  4. Add the salt, baking soda and cinnamon and give it a good stir.
  5. Mix in the diced apples and the rolled oats.
  6. Pour in the flour, adding a little at a time and stirring to incorporate before adding more until it is all mixed together. If it seems too dry you can add little plant-based milk. Add in 1 tablespoon at a time so you don’t use too much.
  7. Prepare your muffin pan. If your pan sticks you’ll want to use a little cooking spray. If you have a nonstick pan you won’t need to. Scoop batter into a muffin pan. I use about 1/4 cup of batter in each. 
  8. Bake for 15 minutes. Test for doneness by inserting a toothpick into the center of the muffin, it’s done when it comes out clean.

These muffins can be stored at room temperature in an air tight container for a few days.

I can’t wait to hear what you think of these muffins? They remind me of the apple cinnamon oatmeal packets I would eat as a kid! The secret is to dice the apples really really tiny!

In this fast life of cities, people don’t realize that they are taking themselves towards death bed by eating junk and filling up their system with the bad nutrition which is destroying there health. We need to understand that with healthy choices wealthy lifestyle moves along.
