These muffins are made with whole wheat flour and sweetened with apples and maple syrup instead of sugar. Feel free to experiment with different apple varieties to discover the perfect combination of apple goodness.


Makes 12 muffins


1 3/4 cups white whole wheat flour or regular whole wheat flour

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 cup apple, grated

1 cup apple, diced into ¼ inch cubes

1 lemon, zest only

2 eggs, room temperature

1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil

1/2 cup maple syrup

1/2 cup plain yogurt

1/2 cup applesauce

1 teaspoon pure vanilla or almond extract

1 tablespoon Turbinado (raw sugar) sugar, as a garnish (optional)



Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Grease a 12 cup muffin tin with butter or non-stick cooking spray.

In a large mixing bowl, whisk the flour, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda and salt until well blended. Add the grated apple, chopped apple and lemon zest, stir until well coated.

In a medium mixing bowl, whisk the eggs until frothy. Then whisk in the oil and maple syrup until well combined. Add the yogurt, applesauce and vanilla and mix well. 

Using a spoon or spatula, pour the wet ingredients into the dry and mix just until combined. The batter will be thick. Scoop the batter evenly between the 12 muffin cups. Sprinkle the tops of the muffins with Turbinado sugar if using. Bake muffins for 13 - 15 minutes, or until the muffins are golden on top and a toothpick inserted into a muffin comes out clean.

Eat them warm or save them for up to 5 days in an airtight container.
