Apple Raisin Oat Muffins

I really enjoyed reading the responses to the superwoman post… I’m glad so many of you could relate!

It’s another what I ate Wednesday, and I’m linking to Jenn at Peas and Crayons. Here’s what I was eating yesterday:

Breakfast: Scrambled eggs with avocado, tomato and gouda; Lunch: Black bean coconut soup, roasted sweet potatoes and broccoli; Snack: Banana and almond butter; Dinner: Cilantro Lime Fish tacos

The fish tacos were a big hit! I’ll share that recipe soon.

After a mother-daughter baking session in the afternoon, I also had one of these…

After sharing on Instagram yesterday, I agreed to post the recipe. We love these muffins! They are relatively low in sugar, but yummy enough to count as a treat.

These are whole-grain, and can be made gluten free and vegan.  You could also omit the sugar or substitute it with a little honey or mashed banana.

Apple Raisin Oat Muffins (print recipe)

  • 1 c. rolled oats
  • 1 c. flour (I used whole wheat pastry)
  • 1/4 c. sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 flax egg or whole egg (1 tbsp ground flaxseed in 3 tbsp water)
  • 1/4 c. canola oil or melted coconut oil
  • 1/4 c. unsweetened applesauce
  • 3/4 c. almond milk (or milk of choice)
  • 1 chopped apple
  • 1 c. raisins

Add dry ingredients to a medium bowl and stir together.  Add remaining ingredients and mix until just combined.  Fill muffin cups 3/4 full.  Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes.  Makes 12.

Do you have a favorite muffin recipe?
