So here is my recipe. Enjoy!
APPLE PIE MUFFINS- makes about 2 dozen muffins
1/2 cup (one stick) butter, room temp
1/2 cup sugar
1 large egg
1/2 cup unsweetened apple sauce
1 6oz container vanilla yogurt (or plain would work) *Note- I had a reader try Greek yogurt in this recipe and her muffins turned out dense, so you might want to stick with regular yogurt!
1 large fuji apple, cut into small cubes (method below) or two small apples
2 cups whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking powder
pinch of salt
2 tsp cinnamon
Garnishes- wheat germ, and turbinado sugar
|Use the real stuff-its better!!!|
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a medium bowl, mix together room temperature butter and sugar. Then beat in egg. After that, add in the apple sauce and yogurt.
|We get local eggs- they are so much fresher!|
Add in your apple last. Here is how to cut them fast!
|Make four cuts to slice off the "meat" of the apple. You should be left with a square core.|
|Slice each of those into 1/4" thick slices.|
|Lay those slices on their sides, and cut them into thirds.|
|Then dice them up into cubes.|
Sprinkle each muffin with wheat germ (adds folate and a nice nutty flavor) and turbinado sugar.
Now the best part- EAT THEM!!! LJ had a little buddy over for a playdate, and I had to send some home with him because he loved them so much!
|Blowing on her hot muffin- but she didn't want to wait!|
|Hmm, how can I get MORE muffins? (thought going through Jack's head and the doggie's head)|
