Healthy Apple Muffins


– 2 c. old fashioned oats, uncooked – 3/4 c. vanilla protein powder – 1 tsp. baking powder – 1 tsp. cinnamon, plus sprinkling for topping – 1/4 tsp. nutmeg – 1/4 tsp. salt – 1 c. milk (either dairy or plant-based milk) – 3/4 c. plain Greek yogurt – 1 egg (or two egg whites) – 2 Tbsp. honey – 1 tsp. vanilla extract – 1 c. apples, peeled and diced – 1/3 c. sliced or slivered almonds (for topping)


Step 1

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a muffin tin with coconut oil spray or line with silicone baking cups or paper liners. Set aside.

Step 2

In a mixing bowl, combine the dry ingredients: oats, protein powder, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt.

Step 3

In a separate bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients: milk, yogurt, egg, honey and vanilla. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. With a rubber scraper, mix together well scraping down the sides of the bowl. Batter will be thick. Fold in the apples.

Step 4

Spoon the batter into the prepared muffin tin cups. Each muffin cup will be nearly full. Top each muffin with a sprinkling of cinnamon and the almonds.

Step 5

Bake the muffins for 26-28 minutes at 350 degrees. Muffins will be golden brown. Remove from oven and let cool for 10 minutes in pan. Transfer muffins removing them from the pan to cool completely.

Step 6

Enjoy right away or wrap in plastic wrap and freeze to enjoy later.
