Cooler weather has arrived, and as always, my mind wanders to fall produce with apples at the top of the list. These tender, lightly sweetened, moist muffins taste like carrot cake, spice cake, and apple cake combined. These muffins freeze well and can be quickly reheated in the microwave on a low temperature for a quick breakfast.

Instructions Checklist

  • Stir together flour, oats, brown sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda, salt, and nutmeg together in a large bowl. Whisk together yogurt, buttermilk, oil, egg, and vanilla extract in a second bowl. Fold flour mixture into yogurt mixture, mixing just until combined and flour disappears. Stir together apple, carrot, and walnuts in a separate bowl; gently fold into the batter. Divide batter evenly among the muffin cups.

  • Bake muffins in the preheated oven until golden brown or a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 17 to 19 minutes.

  • Cool muffins in the tin for 5 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Cook's Note:

If you're using a soft, juicy apple, you may find shredding works better than grating.

I liked these. They weren't the greatest of all time thus no five star rating. I added cinnamon which added to the flavor. Read More

For those limiting sugar this is a fine muffin recipe. All I needed was half a reasonably sized carrot. Read More
