So, here’s a neat little recipe…….
Mark likes an apple in his lunch. I had purchased a bag, on sale…… should’ve known that they were a little more
ripe mushy than he would care for.
Didn’t want the apples to go to waste…. so I put my thinking cap on…….
First, my kids can not tolerate “chunks” of anything in their muffins. So, I decided to grate the apples after peeling. Solved that little snag…..
That there is 5 med. red delicious apples!!
To that grated apple I sprinkled 1 TBS of sugar and 1 TBS of cinnamon. Of course instead of sugar you can substitute Splenda or Stevia.
This made the grated apple to juice. And the smell……. mmmmmmm……. reminded me of a cool fall morning!
Now the muffin batter…..
- 1/2 cup oil
- 2 tsp. vanilla
- 2 tsp. baking soda
- 1 tsp. salt
- 1 cup of sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 2 cups all purpose flour
- Whisk together oil, eggs, and vanilla. Add sugar. Then flour, soda, and salt. Stir together. Add shredded apples.
I will have to play around with sugar substitutes. I was thinking maybe honey or guava syrup would be tasty. I will get back with ya’ll on that one!!
Now grease or spray with cooking spray your muffin tins! Heat up that oven to 350 degrees.
Oh here’s a tip….. use a ice cream scoop to fill the muffin tins. It helps keep the muffins in a unified size.
Once you have the muffin batter scooped into the tin, sprinkle each with a little cinnamon sugar. Yay! My son loves a little cinnamon sugar on his muffins!!
Bake those puppies for 25 minutes.
The fam gobbled them up as if there was no tomorrow!!
My grandmother always said that people throw out their money on wasted food. Just because the apples were just a little on the soft side didn’t justify me throwing away that money well spent.
What are you waiting for??? Get to baking!!
