Apples Oats and Autumn: MMM Muffins

Weeks ago we went apple picking… we picked more apples than can fit in our refrigerators. I have canned them, baked them, cooked them and savored every bite. Folks walk into the house olfactory nerves a twitching! The aromas from apples are unbeatable.
Here is another sure fire winner for a juicy, solid apple. It only takes one apple to make this confection.

Apple Muffins

1 egg
1 cup milk
1/4 cup oil
1 3/4 cups all purpose flour
1/4 c rolled oats
1/4 cup Splenda or regular sugar
3 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 apple peeled, core removed
1 /2 teaspoon cinnamon

Nut topping
1/3 cup chopped nuts
3 Tablespoons Splenda brown sugar or 1/3 cup regular brown sugar
1 Tablespoon rolled oats
1 Tablespoon flour

Heat oven to 400 degrees. Grease bottom of muffin cups. Beat egg; stir in milk and oil. Grate apple. Mix in remaining ingredients just until flour is moistened… do not over mix. Batter should be lumpy!
Sprinkle nut topping over each top. Bake 25 minutes.
Isn’t it fun to celebrate the seasons with the food, smells and colors that we can add!byDeborahonSunday, October 12, 2008Military Life:,,
