Apple Mormon Muffins

Okay let’s do this, second recipe from the brave new meal cookbook! These are the apple Mormon muffins which have a story behind the name. These are packed with goodness!

Let me just get this out there – if you need to increase your fiber, you got to make these muffins. There are bran flakes, flaxseed and wheat germ. There is also chopped apple and walnuts which give more nutrition but also some nice texture. I know it sounds like a lot of healthy things and that the muffin is just going to taste gross but trust me it works. I definitely was a little skeptical when making these muffins but you will be so happy with the results, I promise you.

I did have to make a change to the batter though because I could not find the wheat germ. I used oats instead which which I really liked because it gave more texture to the muffin.

I know healthy like bran muffins tend to be very dense and heavy but these muffins were not that. I think this is due to the buttermilk mixture that’s made (almond milk + apple cider vinegar) as well as baking soda and water mixture. Both of those really help to lighten up the batter and ensure a fluffy muffin in the end.

A cool note in this recipe is that you can either bake these right away or refrigerate overnight and bake in the morning. I decided to try both ways. So I baked six muffins immediately and then I refrigerated the rest and baked the remainder in an 8×8 greased pan. Both turned out equally great, I couldn’t really see a difference between the two but it was nice to have that option if you wanted to make this in advance.

So like I said these turned out great. I really like the apple with the nuts and the cinnamon in the batter. That’s just such a classic combination and it helps to almost “cover up” that they’re a healthy muffin. Honestly I can’t say enough how good they were just go make them and I will definitely be making them again and keeping them in the freezer.
