Adapted from Weelicious
1 1/2 c. white whole wheat flour
2 t. baking powder
1/4 t. salt
1 t. ground cinnamon
1/2 c. unsweetened applesauce
1/2 c. homemade buttermilk (see recipe below) or (alternative organic milk)
1/2 c. honey
1 large organic egg
1 t. organic vanilla extract
Stir In Ingredients
1 c. peeled and chopped organic apples (about 2 medium apples)
Directions: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a muffin pan (alternative: silicone muffin cups).
In a small bowl, combine the dry ingredients. In a larger bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir just until combined. Very gently, stir in the apples. Fill muffin containers ¾ full and bake approximately 15 minutes.
Mix/stir as little as possible to create fluffy, moist muffins.
I don’t like the clean toothpick test for muffins because they are often overdone. Muffins continue to cook for a bit longer when removed from the oven. Instead of the toothpick test, watch for them to begin releasing from the edge of the baking cup/tin (and look for a slightly golden color).
Once you’ve baked a few batches, you’ll begin to learn your oven’s ideal baking time.
