Fresh honeycrisp apples, home-made applesauce and yogurt come together in these well-balanced and delicious muffins. The granola topping is a wonderful toouch, but definitely not necessary.
World please meet my newest muffin. This Fresh Apple Muffin is simple and delicious, and full of real apple goodness! Plus it’s a pretty fantastic way to start the day!
This muffin also has several components that are really quite good for you! I also love to add yogurt to many of my muffins and mini loaf recipes. It’s a great way to make them tender and moist. Of course the home-made applesauce helps with that as well. 🙂
Apples: You see here freshly chopped Honeycrisp apple. You don’t have to use Honeycrisp! I used Honeycrisp because that’s what I had on hand. Remember you can chop the apple as large, or small as you want to.
Muffins: Just to give you an idea of what the muffins look like before they’re popped into the oven. The batter is fairly thick.
Simply Balanced: This is Simply Balanced apple cinnamon muesli cereal made with natural ingrdients, available at Target. I used this for the granola topping. It was perfect! Again this is completely optional.
I’ve said it before and I will say it again, I truly believe it is the simple, well done, recipes that bring the most satisfaction! The people I bake and cook for prefer simple food over complex food, hands down any day of the week.
This muffin is simple, fresh and delicious!
