Sometimes I have a bunch of apples hanging around that desperately need help. Especially in the fall. These muffins are a delicious way to use them up before they rot!

INGREDIENTS

3 tbsp of ground flax mixed with 9 tbsp water

1 cup rolled oats

1 cup whole wheat flour

1/2 tsp salt, baking soda and baking powder

1 tsp cinnamon

1/4 cup of honey

1/3 cup coconut sugar or brown sugar

1/3 cup of melted coconut oil

1 tsp vanilla extract

2 cups of shredded apples

1/3 cup chopped walnuts

two handfuls of raisins

  • Mix the ground flax with water; set aside for 5-10 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and prepare your muffin tin* (makes 12).
  • Throw your oats in a high speed blender until it forms a fine flour.
  • Mix all dry ingredients together in a large bowl.
  • Mix all wet ingredients together in a medium bowl.
  • Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients. Fold in apples, walnuts and raisins.
  • Mix until just combined.
  • Separate evenly throughout the 12 cups.
  • Stick it in the oven for 40-45 minutes.**
  • Voilà! If you used silicone cups, take the muffins out of the cups to cool down to prevent an accumulation of moisture.
  • Stuff your face with healthy muffins.

* I use reusable silicone muffin cups, which is a great way to reduce the consumption of our precious resources! 

**I’m not good at putting a timer on to bake things, since I just smell it when it’s ready so be weary of this cooking time. After 30 minutes in the oven, just do a tooth-pick check every 5-10 minutes. When the tooth-pick comes out clean (without any muffin batter sticking to it) you know those goodies are ready!
