Easy Healthy Muffins
Why yes, I did just post muffins last week! Did you see my Cranberry Pumpkin Muffins? I’ve made more muffins this month than I made all of last year. Before this, I was all about biscotti, like this Pumpkin Pie Biscotti or this Almond Lavender Biscotti.
But now I’ve decided I like making muffins. They are easy to make and easy to make healthy!
How to Make Apple Muffins
- First you mix the streusel ingredients in a small bowl.
- Mix the dry ingredients in a large bowl.
- Combine the wet ingredients and the sugar in a small bowl or a batter bowl.
- Add wet ingredients to dry and ingredients and mix until just combined.
- Line a muffin tin with paper cup liners and fill with batter.
- Top with streusel mixture.
- When cooled, glaze with maple glaze.
Delicious Apple Muffins
These whole grain muffins stay so moist from the diced apple! There is just enough crumb or streusel on top to give it a little added sweetness and crunch and the maple glaze adds a little extra maple flavor.
Variations – you could add some raisins or dried cranberries.
