Equipment

Ingredients

For the muffins:

For the topping (optional):

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees and line or grease a 12-cup muffin pan.
  • Mix the melted butter (1/2 cup), yogurt (1 cup), the egg, brown sugar (1/2 cup), maple syrup (1/2 cup), cinnamon (1 teaspoon), baking soda (1 teaspoon), baking powder (1 teaspoon), vanilla extract (1 teaspoon), and kosher salt (1/2 teaspoon) in a large mixing bowl on high speed until well blended.
  • Stir in the oats (1 cup) and whole wheat flour (1 cup) until just combined (do not overmix!).
  • Gently fold in the diced apples.
  • Distribute batter evenly in prepared muffin pan cups.
  • Mix all ingredients for streusel topping in a small bowl.
  • Add a spoonful of the topping the center of each muffin, distributing evenly.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes at 375 degrees, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the muffins comes out clean.

Notes

  • A quick note about the apples: I diced mine a bit too large, cause the muffins to crumble more than I’d like. I recommend finely dicing the apples. I also left the peels on since a) I hate peeling fruits and veggies, and b) there are a lot of nutrients in the peels! I used fuji apples, which are fairly sweet. If you want more of a tart flavor, use granny smith apples.
