Low Fat Apple Maple Muffins

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by smellyvegetarian

I made these this morning based on Dancer's Dried Cherry Muffin recipe (36519), and they turned out moist and delicious! They're just sweet enough, and the whole wheat flour gives them a nice texture. Leave the peels on the apples for fiber; the baking makes them soft anyhow.

This recipe is good. I love that it is so healthy. I will try them again with some adjustments, because the recipe has the potential to be a keeper.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large bowl combine the dry ingredients (flour through sugar); mix well.
  2. Make a well in the center and add the egg whites, applesauce, vanilla, and buttermilk. Mix gently.
  3. Fold in the apples and mix just until all ingredients are combined.
  4. Pour batter into lightly greased muffin tins.
  5. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes.
  6. While muffins are baking combine the remaining cinnamon and sugar. Sprinkle over muffins as soon as they come out of the oven; the moisture of the muffins will hold just enough sugar in place.
  7. Enjoy!
