Baked Apple Oatmeal Muffins


Remember last week when I posted the Baked Banana Oatmeal Muffins?  My kids really loved them and when school was cancelled last Friday my Little Man begged me to make them again (he is my picky eater, so when he asks for something healthy he usually gets it.)  I went to the kitchen to get started on them when I decided to try something a little different.  I was really winging this recipe but based on the original recipe I was able to create these Baked Apple Oatmeal Muffins...I was thrilled with the way these came out!  This time we had a few leftover so I was able to test out how these held up and if they could be a cold handheld snack later in the day (or the next day if they made it that far.)  They were a great healthy snack - the kids and I loved munching on these throughout the day and we loved them warm out of the oven too.  My kids also tested these with Nutella  and PB both were good toppers.   I'm going to make another batch to keep around for after school snacks too.  I ran out of regular oatmeal when I was making these so I added in some steel cut oats and I really liked the texture the combination created.  Feel free to just use what you have in the house...Enjoy!!!


Ingredients:
1 small chopped apple (I leave the skin on - personal preference here)
1/2 cup applesauce (I used unsweetened)
2 cups of oats

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1 egg, beaten

1 1/2 cups of milk
1 tablespoon of brown sugar

Directions:
Preheat oven to 375 and coat a 12 muffin muffin tin with cooking spray. 
Combine your dry ingredients in a bowl; oats, baking powder, cinnamon and salt.
In another bowl combine the egg,  chopped apple and milk 
Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and mix well.  Pour into the muffin tin (about 1/4 cup of batter per muffin.)


Bake for 20 minutes.  After the 20 minutes top the muffins with the brown sugar and increase the heat to broil.  Broil for 3-4 minutes until the top is bubbly golden brown.
Let cool a little before removing from tin.
