Apple Pie Muffins

I realize that this photo is in no way focused.  However, I did not realize it at the time the photo was taken.  And, unfortunately, all my apple pie muffin models have been devoured.  Please rest assured that these taste (much) better than they look!  The original recipe is from (I changed it quite a bit).


1 cup sucanat
1/3 cup hard white whole wheat flour
1/3 cup rolled oats
1/4 cup softened butter
1 tsp cinnamon


1 1/2 cups sucanat
1/2 cup melted butter (or coconut oil)
1 egg
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
2 1/2 cups hard white whole wheat flour
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp Celtic sea salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1 cup buttermilk
2 cups tart apple, peeled and diced

Mix topping ingredients (cutting in the butter) until crumbly; set aside.

In a large bowl whisk together sugar, butter (coconut oil), egg and vanilla until smooth. In a separate bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. Stir oil mixture into flour mixture alternately with buttermilk. Fold in apples, mixing just until combined. Spoon into greased muffin cups filling 3/4 full. Sprinkle topping over evenly. Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown and tops spring back.

Makes 24 muffins.
