It’s National Raisin Week and a group of us bloggers decided to get together and create some super yummy, out of this world raisin recipes for all of you. I debated for weeks on just what my recipe would be. I didn’t want to do the standard cookie and I have been trying to eat healthier (meaning not as much fat) as usual and decided to go with an Oatmeal Raisin Apple Muffins recipe.
I love muffins for breakfast! They are so easy to grab and go when you are running around on a busy morning. I also like that for muffins you can mix up the dry ingredients in advance and store them in a baggie or a sealed container and add the wet ingredients when you are ready to bake. This makes having a warm, fresh muffin on a weekday morning a snap.
These muffins are made even better because they are super moist and flavorful. They have so much apples and raisins you are getting something good for you in each and every bite. The topping gives them a nice little bit of sweet and crunchy.
- 1 c. all-purpose flour
- 1 c. oat flour (pulverize old fashioned oats in a food processor or blender)
- 1/2 c. sugar
- 1/4 c. dark brown sugar
- 1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp. baking soda
- 1 c. milk
- 1/2 c. natural applesauce
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 c. organic raisins
- 1 c. granny smith apples (peeled, cored and finely diced)
- 1/4 c. dark brown sugar
- 3 tbsp. all-purpose flour
- 1 tbsp. butter, melted
- 2 tbsp. old fashioned oats
- Preheat the oven to 400° and line a muffin tin with liners and spray with baking spray.
- In a large bowl combine the dry muffin ingredients and stir to combine. Make a well in the center and add the wet muffin ingredients. Stir to combine. Stir in the raisins and the apples.
- In a bowl combine the brown sugar, flour and cinnamon and stir together to combine and break up any lumps. Stir in the melted butter and mix until combined. Stir in the oats.
- Fill the muffin tin liners to 2/3 of the way filled and sprinkle some of the topping on each one.
- Bake for 15-20 minutes. Let cool in the pan for 5 minutes and then remove. Eat warm or continue cooling.
