Ingredients

For the topping (optional):

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees and line or grease a 12-cup muffin pan.
  • Mix the bugger, yogurt, egg, brown sugar, maple syrup, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder, vanilla extract, and salt in a large mixing bowl on high speed until well blended.
  • Stir in the oats and whole wheat flour until just combined (do not overmix!)
  • Gently fold in the apples.
  • Distribute batter evenly in prepared muffin pan cups.
  • If you are adding the topping, mix all ingredients for it in a small bowl.
  • Add a spoonful of the topping the center of each muffin, distributing evenly.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes, 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.
