Apple Oat Muffins

I have decided that the best way to cozy up my house on a frigid, snowy day like today is to bake. Also I love to eat and muffins sounded good soooo... here we are. I absolutely love this apple muffin recipe that I stole from my mommy's recipe box. It has a very rich and flavorful taste with hints of delicious spices like cinnamon and nutmeg. Fun fact, the recipe is also specifically made to be beneficial for breastfeeding moms, but they are seriously delicious for anyone. All this means is that they are nutrient dense (we are not talking about a diet food here at all) with ingredients like eggs, oats, oil and whole wheat flour. Fellas, I promise you that your nipples will not start leaking anything if you decide to eat a few of these, although Kevin likes to remain skeptical and calls them my Boobie Milk Muffins. I hope he is joking and doesn't actually think they will make him produce milk...but all joking aside, if you happen to be a breastfeeding mama they are a good little snack to help with your supply :) and if not, well they are just a yummy, good little snack to enjoy. Ellie loves them as well, which is always nice since she won't touch anything that doesn't resemble a graham cracker or macaroni and cheese with a ten foot pole these days.

Apple Oat Muffins
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 1/8 cups milk
  • 1/2 cup oil
  • 2 chopped apples (I like to use granny smith because of their strong flavor)
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 1/2 cups quick oats
  • 4 TBS sugar
  • 4 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons nutmeg
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees
  • Beat eggs
  • Mix in wet ingredients (milk, apple and oil) 
  • Mix the dry ingredients in a separate bowl
  • Stir the dry ingredient mixture into the wet ingredient mixture, mixing just to moisten
  • Grease a muffin pan
  • Fill each muffin about 3/4 full
  • Bake for 13-20 minutes, or until a knife comes out clean.
  • Eat and then feed your baby that nutritious breast milk you are making! Go you! Or just eat them because they are delicious like I am currently doing. Enjoy!
