These are easy and turned out beautifully on my first attempt! If I made them in jumbo muffin tins (which yes, I own!) they would be Starbucks worthy at a fraction of the cost and sooooo low fat! Jumbo would only be 6 points (compared to McDonalds low fat 9 point muffins or fruit and fibre for 12). I used granny smith apples but you can use any.
- 2 cups apples, peeled and shredded (= 2 small apples)
- 1 1⁄2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 cup quick oats
- 2⁄3 cup firmly packed brown sugar
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1⁄2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1⁄2 cup milk
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- Cook for 15-18 minutes at 375 or until finished (use a toothpick as always!).
I agree with DuChick, I ended up with a dry crumbly batter which looked like topping for apple crisp. I added an egg to help it along. Tasted good, though,,,
We really liked these tasty, healthy muffins! I ended up doubling the amount of milk to make a batter. I'm not sure how the others got anything more than a crumbly mixture without extra milk! I also added a few tablespoons of chopped walnuts, and subbed half the white flour for whole wheat.
These are great. 3 points apiece. I substituted applesauce for the oil and added 1 tsp of vanilla. Very simple to make, and easy to mix with a spoon, so no need for a mixer. They aren't super sweet, but taste kind of old-fashioned, which I like. I'll make again! Thanks Heather! ;)
