Healthy Apple-Cranberry Muffin

Just to set the record straight… these muffins are healthy. It’s not that they taste bad or anything. In fact they taste super good but just very healthy. These are moist and fruity.  These are great breakfast muffins that will leave your conscience totally clear. So go ahead and have 2 or even 3.

Side Note: I use half whole wheat, half all-purpose but feel free to do all whole wheat or all all-purpose flour.

Recipe:

Healthy Apple-Cranberry Muffins (adapted from Apple Oat Muffin):

1 apple, peeled, cored and grated (Recommend: Golden Delicious)

1 cup buttermilk

1 cup oats

1/2 cup dried cranberries

1/2 cup all-purpose flour

1/2 cup whole wheat flour

1 1/2 tsp baking powder

1 1/2 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp kosher salt

2 egg whites

1/4 cup honey

  1. Preheat the oven to 350˚F. Line a muffin pan with wrappers and set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the buttermilk, oats, and cranberries.
  3. Add the egg whites and honey to buttermilk mixture and mix.
  4. Add the flours, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt to the buttermilk mixture and mix just to combine.
  5. Fold in the grated apple.
  6. Divide evenly (and generously, these don’t puff up much) in the prepared muffin pan and bake for 20-25 minutes.

Enjoy this healthy, guilt-free treat!
