apple and oat muffins

I am a pretty organised person so I actually created this recipe before I started my health journey. As you know, I’m trying to eat more whole grains, however these muffins are made with whole grain flour and oat flour combined, making them higher in fibre than regular muffins. I also used apple purée for sweetness with a touch of honey so they definitely don’t give that sugar hit.

I actually made these muffins a few of times as they were pretty popular in our household! They make a great snack, lunchbox option or like us we were having 1 or 2 of them for breakfast in the mornings. I was pretty happy they were able to keep me going until lunch even after working on my fitness. I hope you can enjoy them as much as what we did!

Buon Appetito


apple and oat muffins

Makes 12
Author | The Unprocessed Pantry

2 apples
1 cup wholegrain flour
1 cup oat flour
1/2 cup oats
1tsp cinnamon
1/4 cup honey
1/2 cup yoghurt
2 eggs
1 tbsp baking powder

6 or 12 hole muffin pan
mixing bowls
measuring cups and spoons

I used a 6 hole muffin pan and baked in 2 batches. 

Oat flour can be purchased from health food stores. 

Peel, core and roughly chop the apples and place in a saucepan and add 1/2 cup water. Place over low heat and bring to the boil. Once the apples start to soften, remove half the apples and place to the side. Continue to cook the remaining apple until it starts to resemble a purée. Mash with fork if necessary. Strain the apple to remove any excess water and allow to cool. 

Preheat oven to 180°c. Grease and flour a muffin pan.

In a mixing bowl, place the flours, oats, cinnamon and stir to combine. In a separate bowl whisk the eggs with the yoghurt, honey and apple purée. Pour into the flour mixture and stir together with a spatula. Add in the apple pieces and fold through. Lastly add the baking powder and stir through evenly. 

Fill the each muffin hole to the top with mixture and bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes or until the skewer comes out clean.
