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
In a bowl mix together all of your dry ingredients. Flours, flax seeds, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg & salt.
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.
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..
