This is the last of the muffin recipes for a little while, I promise! Next week will be full of fun, easy week night dinners and yummy, healthy smoothie ideas (I GOT A VITAMIX FOR CHRISTMAS AND I AM OVERLY EXCITED ABOUT IT!!). I promise, I will resist the urge to post only drinkable meals…there will be solid foods next week…but also some great Vitamix creations.
But, lets focus on the muffins for just a second- these muffins deserve our undivided attention- they are a staple in my house and such a yummy treat, I think they will be a staple in your house too! They are perfect for company- perfect for taking to work- and perfect for just about any occasion because they are moist, perfectly apple-y, decadent tasting AND best of all- healthy, full of whole grains and protein and enough apple to be sure to keep the doctor away!
Apple Crumble Muffins
1 medium apple, cut into small cubes
1/4 C water
1 C whole wheat flour
1 C oat flour (whole oats ground in the blender)
1/2 T baking powder
1 t baking soda
1/2 t salt
1 t cinnamon
1/3 C + 2 T brown sugar
1 egg and 1 egg white
1/2 C 0% plain greek yogurt
1/3 C unsweetened almond milk (or any other milk you would like)
1/4 C whole wheat flour
1/4 C whole oats
1/8 C brown sugar
1/2 t salt
2 T smart balance light +omegas, cold
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In a small pan over medium heat cook apples, 2 T brown sugar and 1/4 C water until slightly translucent.
In a large bowl combine the flours, baking soda, baking powder, salt and cinnamon.
In a separate bowl combine the sugar, eggs, greek yogurt and almond milk. Gently mix the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Now, fold in the apples.
In another bowl, make the crumble topping. Combine the flour, oats, sugar and salt. Now, pinch in the cold smart balance until a crumble forms.
Fill a cooking spray coated muffin tin 3/4 full with the apple mixture. Now, sprinkle even amounts of crumble topping on each muffin.
Bake for 15-18 minutes- until the crumble is golden.
