Ingredients

  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter 1/4 cup
  • 1/2 cup honey or pure maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup milk dairy, almond, etc.
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 cups white whole wheat flour
  • 1 large baking apple chopped (1 1/2 cups, no need to peel)

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray muffin pans (regular size or mini) with cooking spray. I like to use coconut oil spray.
  • Place the butter in a large bowl and melt it in the microwave. You could also melt the butter in a pot on the stove.
  • Add the honey or pure maple syrup, applesauce, plain Greek yogurt, milk, eggs and vanilla to the bowl with the butter. Whisk until well combined.
  • Add the baking soda, baking powder, salt and cinnamon to the bowl with the wet ingredients. Whisk until well combined.
  • Add the white whole wheat flour. Use a rubber spatula to mix it in until almost combined.
  • Add the chopped apple, reserving a few apple pieces for the tops of the muffins, if desired. Use the rubber spatula to mix in the apple until just combined.
  • Scoop the batter into the greased muffin pans, filling each well about 2/3 full. If you reserved some of the apple pieces, press them into the tops of the muffins.
  • Bake regular size muffins for 16-18 minutes, until a tester inserted into the center comes out clean. Bake mini muffins for about 12 minutes.
  • Let cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to finish cooling.
  • Store muffins in the refrigerator for up to 3 days or in the freezer for up to 3 months.
