Fall Muffins: Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal Flaxseed Muffins

The Apple Season is upon us! We will hopefully be picking apples next month in Ellijay, GA, but for now store bought apples will have to indulge my fall cravings.

Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal Flaxseed Muffins

Cook time: 16-18 Minutes
Yields 9 muffins
Preheat oven to 400

Here's what you need:

1 1/2 cups All Purpose Flour
1/2 cup White Sugar
1/4 cup Brown Sugar
1/2 tsp Salt
2 tsp Baking Powder
1 tsp Ground Cinnamon
1/3 cup Canola Oil (or Veggie- doesn't make a difference)
1 egg
1/2 cup plain Apple Sauce (if you have cinnamon apple sauce just cut the ground cinnamon in half)
1 apple (I use Gala apples when baking- they are my favorite but you can use whatever you prefer)
1/3 cup each of Flaxseed and Oatmeal

Step 1: Mix the dry ingredients and make a well in the center. Then add the oil, egg and apple sauce.

Step 2: Dice the apple in small pieces- fold them into the mixture along with the oatmeal and flaxseed. 

Step 3: Mix well and scoop into your muffin pan. If you are not using muffin liners make sure to grease your pan well.
Tip: When you do not use the whole muffin tin add a small amount of water to the unused cups. It will protect your pan and make your muffins/cupcakes moist.

Step  4: Place in your preheated oven for 16-18 minutes. I put a small amount of sugar on top of the muffins, too.

Step 5: Enjoy!
