Spiced Apple, Cranberry & Almond Muffins

Oh muffins. I actually have some muffins in the oven RIGHT NOW. I love them just a little too much :)
These were oh so scrumptious. I started out to make spiced apple muffins, then I noticed the slivered almonds & cranberries in the cupboard and I just couldn't help but add them! This recipe makes 12 muffins. Here is what you need:

  • 1 cup white flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 3 tbsps of ground up flax seeds
  • 1/4 cup of sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 tsps cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 2 eggs lightly beaten
  • 3/4 cup of unsweetened apple sauce
  • 3/4 cup of skim milk
  • 2 tbsps of olive oil (or any other oil, I just prefer olive)
  • 2 small/medium apples cut into small pieces 
  • 1/2 cup of dried cranberries
  • 1/4 cup of slivered almonds
Step one:
In a bowl mix together all of your dry ingredients. Flours, flax seeds, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg & salt. 

Step two:
Now add your wet ingredients. Stirring with each addition. Sugar, eggs, apple sauce, milk, & oil. Once all combined you can stir in the apples, cranberries & almonds. 

Step three:
Spoon the muffin batter into a greased muffin tin. (Or you can use muffin cups) Bake at 400F for 15 minutes or until done. 
** I sprinkled a little bit of brown sugar on the tops of the muffins** 

Cool them on a wire rack. TADA! The perfect snack awaits you..
Enjoy! xoxo
