Well, another year of apple picking is is the books and it was everything we knew it would be.  Weather was fantastic.  Hot, even.  Apples….so so good.  And the company was pretty much top notch.  Heres a handful of the reasons it was worth every second…

1)  We were able to view some of the best scenery around

Apple Oat Muffins

Notes:  Oat flour is available for purchase in most supermarkets.  I make my own…it is very simple and cost effective.  Just grind up rolled oats in your food processor or nut/coffee bean grinder until they resemble a smooth flour-like texture.  I grind large quantities at a time and store them in an air tight container.

Ingredients

2 Cups Oat Flour

2 Teaspoons Baking Powder

1 1/2 Teaspoons Ground Cinnamon

1/2 Teaspoon Ground Nutmeg

1/4 Teaspoon Baking Soda

1/4 Teaspoon Salt

1/2 Cup Unsweetened Applesauce

1/4 Cup Full Fat Greek Yogurt

1/4 Cup Pure Honey

2 Whole Eggs + 1 Egg White

4 Tablespoons Butter, melted and slightly cooled

1 Teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract

1 Cup Shredded Apple (shredded on a box grater)

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 and line a 12 count muffin pan with liners.  In a medium bowl whisk together the oat flour, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking soda and salt.  In a large bowl whisk together the applesauce, yogurt, honey, eggs+whites, butter and vanilla.  Pour the dry ingredients into the wet and stir until combined.  Stir in the  grated apple.  Divide the batter among muffin pan filling each one about 3/4 full.  Bake for 20-25 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.  Makes 12 muffins
