This is a great apple muffin recipe. I plan to try this recipe this week. See you at the market.
Baked Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal Cups
By Sally’s Baking Addiction
1½ cups milk (dairy or nondairy)
2 large eggs*
½ cup pure maple syrup*
½ cup unsweetened applesauce
3 cups old-fashioned whole oats*
1 teaspoon baking powder
1½ teaspoons ground cinnamon
¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
¼ teaspoon salt
1 heaping cup peeled chopped apple*
optional: ½ cup chopped walnuts or pecans
optional: coarse sugar for topping
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (177 degrees Celsius). Generously spray a muffin pan with nonstick spray. If using muffin liners, spray them with nonstick spray. The oatmeal cups stick to the liners a bit regardless, so I recommend skipping them.
2. Whisk all of the ingredients together, except for the apples (and nuts and coarse sugar), in 1 large bowl. Using a spoon or rubber spatula, fold in the apples and nuts (if using). Batter will be a little liquid-y. Spoon batter evenly into muffin cups, making sure both the oats/apples and liquid are in each. Fill all the way to the top. See photo above. If desired, sprinkle the tops with coarse sugar.
3. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until the edges are lightly browned and top appears set. If the tops appear to brown very quickly, tent a piece of aluminum foil on top.
4. Cool for 5 minutes before serving. Cover leftover oatmeal cups tightly and refrigerate for up to 1 week.
Note — Sugar: Sally recommends pure maple syrup because the flavor is outstanding and the baked oatmeal is extra moist. Instead, you can use packed brown sugar, coconut sugar or honey.
