WOW! These little gems are absolutely yummy! I made them as a surprise for my sis just about 20 minutes ago and when I pulled them out of the oven (after 25 min. baking time) they smelled so heavenly that I just couldnt resist and had to eat one straight away. Yum, yum, yum! These are bursting with apple flavour, have just the right amount of fruity sweetness and a nice moist inside paired with a crunchy top. Plus they are very healthy and dont make you feel bad about eating one more (or two). ;) What more can you ask for in a muffin?! Thanks so much for sharing this fabulous recipe with us, Annacia! Im sure to make these very often again. Oh, before I forget: I used 1 1/4 c whole spelt flour + 1/4 cup normal spelt flour, cause I cant have wheat and needed to use up the whole spelt flour. Kinda goofed up a bit, cause forgot to add the oil, but the muffins turned out perfectly, so I think Ill just leave it out in the future also.

These are so very very good Anna. I think what I like best is the fact that they aren't very sweet and that makes the apple taste come thru stronger. I didn't have any brownsugar Splenda and so subbed regular. Also, omitted the oil and used 2 T. unsweetened applesauce. Ground up old-fashioned oats for the oatbran part too. Really- Really good.!!!!
