Apple Oat Muffins

October 25, 2015

I love these dense, flavorful muffins for breakfast–it’s like eating apple cinnamon oatmeal as a muffin! This recipe is from Cooking Light magazine and each muffin weighs in at less than 200 calories. So enjoy!

2 cups tart apples, peeled and shredded
1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup quick-cooking oats
2/3 cup brown sugar, packed
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 cup milk
2 Tablespoons vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup (8 oz.) plain low fat yogurt
1 large egg


  • Pre heat oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Place shredded apple on paper towels and squeeze out excess water, until barely moist.
  • In a large bowl, combine flour and next 6 ingredients (thru cinnamon). Stir with a whisk. Make a well in center of mixture.
  • In a medium bowl whisk together milk, oil, vanilla, yogurt, and egg until well blended.
  • Pour egg mixture into well of flour mixture. Stir until just moist. (Do not over mix or muffins will be tough.)
  • Fold in shredded apple.
  • Spray a 12 cup muffin pan with Pam cooking spray.
  • Evenly spoon batter into prepared muffin tin.
  • Bake 20 minutes or until muffins spring back when touched lightly in center.
  • Cool in pans 5 minutes, then remove to wire rack and cool completely.
