Apple Oatmeal Muffins

I admit–there are some really crazy things going on around here. Wheat grinding, label reading, brown rice boiling, sugar shunning—I tell you, it’s frightening. I mean, it’s almost like, everyone in the house is trying to focus on becoming more healthy…all at the same time. I know, when does that happen? Creepy, right?

Well, it’s not only true, but we’re actually having an ok time with it besides. Oh, there’s a bit more work than just ripping open a box, certainly. But with all of us on the same page, it’s actually…fun. And I believe that the reason it’s fun is that anything hard to do becomes easier when you don’t have to do it alone.

Those are either incredibly wise words or my new codependent motto. Either way.


Now, please don’t be afraid when you see this really healthy, actually good for your recipe. I swear, it tastes great too. You must trust me on this. In fact, I bet your kids will even eat these yummy things–and have no earthly idea that it’s…kind of…like…you know…health food.

Joke’s on them.

  1. They look good 🙂 Hopefully I can be supportive of this iniative when I get back and not mess anyone up!

  2. It’s always nice to find things that are healthy ANNNND taste good! 😉 There should be more of this in the world. 🙂 Thanks for sharing… the muffins AND the recipe!

  3. You are so right. It’s always nicer to not do things alone. I will have to get going on healthier living!! Thanks for your recipe….. You are awesome.

  4. Be sure to dice the apples really small. That really worked best to distribute the flavor evenly. They were incredible and we made a double batch. I believe there was a fight over the last one. I got it. :}

  5. Great recipe! I used apple sauce like you suggested but I also added dried cranberries just because I had some kicking around and I also added about 1/4 cup of ground flax for a bit extra fibre. They turned out awesome! Even my boyfriend loved them hahaha

  6. I make a version of these, and I shred the apples. It makes the batter thicker, and the muffins rise a bit more.

  7. I just made these this afternoon and they are so good! I had a few apples from my friend’s apple tree to use up and this recipe worked perfectly.
