Apple and oat muffins

Apple and oat muffins

You may recall my post about baking Nutella Muffins and overcoming mental blocks. You may also recall that I gave myself the creative task earlier this week of trying to learn a new muffin recipe. Well, I did… kind of.

You see, I have a lot of apples. We tend to buy big bags of them because they are cheap and tasty. Nicole and I also like porridge. So the idea occurred to me”Hey, why not apple and oat muffins?”.

So I hopped onto Google and Youtube and investigated apple and oat muffin recipes. That’s when I noticed that muffins are more or less the same, except where the flavoring is concerned. This is probably obvious to all of you out there, but I do tend to miss the obvious. So a new muffin recipe is essentially the old one slightly modified.

So I diced up a couple of apples, got myself a cup of pressed oats from the porridge box, and added these into the mix I used last time. One thing: I used 3 teaspoons of vanilla essence instead of the recommended one – makes it yummier. The result was brilliant. I was actually quite fascinated by the fact that the oats completely vanish in the final product and that the apples are no longer little cubes but more like a vein of stewed apple.

Anyway, I now feel confident where muffins are concerned and believe that I can conquer any muffin challenge.

Thanks for reading.




  1. It’s apple season in our hemisphere so this is pretty timely. Annoyingly iPhone spell correct doesn’t want to let me type apple with a lower case a.

    1. LOL. That’s Apple for you :) Yep – cooking with apples is lovely, so take advantage of the season :)
