Apple Oatmeal Muffins

Because we like our muffins mammoth-sized, I usually only get 8 muffins out of this recipe. For more modest eaters, however, you can make them smaller - either way they'll be delish. And for extra apple-y goodness, serve with your very own homemade apple butter.


  • 1 cup quick-cooking rolled oats, (not instant)

  • 1 cup plain yogurt

  • 1 egg

  • 1/3 cup brown sugar

  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour

  • 2 tsp baking powder

  • 1/2 tsp baking soda

  • 1 cup chopped apples, (peeled or not - your choice)

  • 2 tbsp granulated sugar

  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon


  • Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C). Grease a muffin pan or line with paper liners.

  • In a bowl, stir together the rolled oats and the yogurt. Let soak for 10 minutes or so, then stir in the egg, brown sugar, and vegetable oil.

  • In another bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, and baking soda. Add this mixture to the oat mixture, and stir just until combined. The batter will be quite thick - but that's OK. Stir in the chopped apples. Spoon batter into 8 to 10 cups of the prepared muffin pan, filling the cups all the way to the top. In a small bowl, stir together the sugar and the cinnamon. Sprinkle over top of the unbaked muffins.

  • Place in the oven and bake for 18 to 20 minutes, or until nicely browned on top and a toothpick poked into the center of a muffin comes out clean. Let cool for a minute or two before removing from the pan.
