Reasonably Healthy Muffins

I made these this morning for a playdate that turned into a brunch. The many, many little boys loved them. This started from an old Betty Crocker muffin recipe, but I tweaked it to add flavor and fiber and make each muffin a little bigger.




1 egg

1 cup milk

¼ cup vegetable oil

1 cup grated apple (I leave the skin on when I grate)

2 cups flour

1 cup oatmeal

¼ cup sugar (I might use a little more next time)

2 ½ teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon ginger

1 teaspoon cinnamon


1. Preheat oven to 400

2. Beat the egg

3. Stir in milk, oil, and grated apple.

4. Mix dry ingredients in separate bowl.

5. Mix dry ingredients into wet just until it’s all combined – lumps are okay

6. Fill 12 muffin cups 2/3 full

7. Bake 10-15 minutes

  1. Commenting on my own recipe: I made this today and upped the sugar to 1/3 cup, added a teaspoon of vanilla, and used 2 tsp of cinnamon since I couldn't find ginger. Still delicious!
