Apple and Oat Muffins

by Katrina - The Organised Housewife

These muffins are delicious and reasonably healthy! Filled with wholemeal flour, oats and apples so that your kid’s will get plenty of energy from them to help them stay focused on their studies at school. You could even add in some sultanas or dates if you wanted for extra fibre and goodness!

Apple muffins are my kid’s favourite, so I make all kinds of apple muffin recipes, but one thing I really like about this recipe is the amount of batter the recipe makes. You get 12 regular muffins plus 12 mini muffins out of this recipe, which is so handy for school lunchboxes and after-school snacks. It makes enough for the kids to have some for afternoon tea and freeze for school and work lunch boxes.

This is my lunch for work today: chicken salad, berries and 2 mini apple and oat muffins.

Sounds yum, wondering if recipe would work with maple flavoured syrup (I don’t have any actual maple syrup in the pantry at the moment)?

I don’t see why not Mariana, it just make be a little sweeter than with the real syrup. Hope you enjoy.

I made these today to add to our lunch boxes this week. I did play around a bit and did not use maple syrup or the sugar but rather added Rice Malt Syrup (reducing sugar intake.) It is a lovely recipe and will add it to my “go to” recipe list.
Thanks Kat
