This Monday we continue our Muffin Mondays with a delicious recipe for apple oatmeal muffins. Though our pistachio muffins were The Bellie’s favorite, these ones are Nellie’s favorite. If you haven’t gone to our muffin mix recipe yet, you should do that. We use that mix and add extras to it to make these delectable muffins.
The actual title for these muffins is “Apple, Cinnamon, Oatmeal Pecan Muffins”. Why? ‘Cause that’s the kind of muffin Levi wanted. No joke. Everyone was asked what muffin they’d like us to try, since were planning on making 4 or 5 kinds, and this is what Levi came up with. Can you tell he’s the son of a blogger? And someone who can cook? He didn’t want apple cinnamon muffins. Or oatmeal muffins. No. Nothing would do but apple cinnamon oatmeal pecan for this future chef. Side note: muffins are a great way to get extra nutrients into your kids’ diets. It also helps to call them “cupcakes”.
Important note: this recipe does not call for cherry tomatoes, even though they’re in the picture. Actually, none of the various muffins we were creating called for tomatoes. That’s probably a good thing. Muffins and tomatoes don’t mix well. We have no idea why they were on our table. This picture isn’t actually about apple muffins at all; it’s Nellie staging our photo for the previous batch of muffins. I guess if you look hard, you can see the apples we diced. Does that count?
After creating the batter and putting it in lined muffin tins, you’ll want to add a tablespoon or two of crumble to the top.
Why didn’t our pictures really show you the steps to making these? A step-by-step wasn’t really necessary. You just dice the apples, mix the batter, pour it in, put crumble on top, and bake them. Sure, we could have done a picture for each step. But that seemed excessive.
