Apple Chunk Spice Muffins

Desperate for an easy breakfast to grab this coming week (paired with an Apple Crostata gone terribly wrong last night) left me with an idea for apple muffins on this Labor Day Monday. Because I never have buttermilk in-house and because I must add extra spices to everything, I had to adapt several recipes and am calling this one my own. Enjoy!

¾ Cup Bob’s Red Mill Oat Bran Cereal
¾ Cup Whole Wheat Flour
½ cup Brown Sugar
1 t. Baking Powder
1 t. Cinnamon
½ t. Nutmeg
½ t. Ground Cloves
½ t. Ginger

1. Mix together dry ingredients.

¼ Cup Canola Oil
1 Egg
½ Cup Milk
1 T. Vanilla

2. Whisk egg and combine all wet ingredients.
3. Pour wet into dry and stir until moistened.

2 Cups Apples chopped. I peeled mine, but don’t think it’s necessarily necessary .

4. Fold apples into mixture
5. Fill 12 muffin tins (greased or with liners)
6. Bake at 400 F for 18 minutes

Because the apple chunks take up so much room in the tin and because they are so delicious, I think I would make a double batch next time so I can have 24 instead of 12....
