Kids and Allergies Sweet Treat Friday: Apple muffins

Submitted by on Friday, 10 October 2008 No Comment
These easily qualify as breakfast. Stuff with fruit and oatmeal, they're hearty and not overly sweet. Even with the icing and sprinkles the guys demand.

I usually make a double batch -- one for now, one for the freezer.

This is a rare recipe that was egg-free to begin with -- it's always nice when you don't have to go through conversion trial and error. Possibly because it's egg-free, the muffin rises only about two inches. It's actually the perfect size for the guys.

Oat, Apple and Raisin Muffins
  • 1c. raisins -- Big Guy won't eat raisins, so I use extra apple instead
  • 1 c. chopped apple -- I grate it instead, and use a cup and a half.
  • 1/4 c. oil
  • 3/4 c. milk
  • 1/3 c. sugar
  • 1 c. all-purpose flour
  • 1 c. quick oats
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. nutmeg -- I use just the cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. allspice
Combine raisins, apple, oil, milk and sugar in a medium mixing bowl. Stir dry ingredients in a separate bowl. Stir the two together until just combine. Divide into 12 greased or lined muffin cups. Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes.

Guys review:
  • Big Guy: Loves them, especially after he helped make them this week.
  • Little Guy: Would rather eat just the icing.
