I’m mad for muffins so I had to try this recipe. Check out this and other yummy recipes, along with mouth watering photos on the blog, the goodie plate. Happy baking, hon!
Whole Wheat Apple Muffins
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup flour all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 Tablespoon cinnamon
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 cup plain yogurt (I used 1/2 cup vanilla yogurt and 1/2 cup cream cheese since that’s what I had in the house)
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup dark brown sugar
1 large egg
2 apples, peeled, cored and chopped into small pieces (I used a food processor.)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a medium sized bowl, combine whole wheat and white flours. Add baking soda, baking powder, salt and cinnamon. Mix by hand. In a separate, large bowl, combine vegetable oil and sugars. Mix with a hand mixer. Add egg and blend. Add yogurt and blend. Add dry mixture to wet mixture. Mix (either by hand or with hand mixer) just until flour gets incorporated. Do not over mix. Grease muffin tin or line tin with baking cups. Add chopped apples to batter and stir by hand. Spoon batter into muffin tin. Sprinkle brown sugar on top of each “muffin.”
Bake at 350 degrees F for 10 minutes. Then turn heat down to 300 degrees F and bake for approximately 15 more minutes. Check the center with a toothpick and take out of oven when it comes out clean.
Yield: 12 regular sized muffins.
