- 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour*
- 1 cup old fashioned rolled oats**
- 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- pinch of salt
- 1 large egg
- 1 cup plain Greek yogurt
- 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 medium-sized apple, peeled, cored, and grated
- 1/2 cup raisins
-Preheat your oven to 350F and prepare a muffin pan by spraying the cavities with cooking spray or lining them with paper liners. Set aside.
-In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, oats, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. Set aside.
-Lightly beat the egg in a separate bowl. Whisk in the yogurt, applesauce, brown sugar, vanilla, and grated apple, stirring until well-combined
-Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, mixing gently until just combined. Fold in the raisins.
-Divide the batter evenly among the 12 muffin cups, filling them almost to the top. Add a sprinkle of oats if desired.
-Bake the muffins for 20-22 minutes, or until top is firm to the touch and toothpick inserted into the centre comes out clean. Allow the muffins to cool in pan for ~10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. Store them in an air-tight container for up to 5 days, or freeze them for up to 3 months.
* You can also use a mix of all-purpose and whole wheat. I'd suggest 1/2 cup of AP and 1/2 cup of whole wheat.
** Do not use quick oats. They are too fine and will dry out the muffins too much.
