Spiced Apple Muffins

  • Author: Kalee
  • Prep Time: 20 mins
  • Cook Time: 20 mins
  • Total Time: 40 mins
  • Yield: 12 muffins


  • • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • • 2 flax eggs (2T flax meal + 5T water)
  • • 1/2 cup nonfat plain yogurt
  • • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • • 1 cup whole wheat flour and 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • • ½ tsp nutmeg
  • • ½ tsp ginger
  • • ¼ tsp cloves
  • • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • • 1/4 cup 1% milk
  • • 1 and 1/2 cups grated apple (3 medium apples)


  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Spray a muffin pan with nonstick or baking spray. In a small bowl, mix the flax meal and water together and let them sit for a few minutes to thicken while you get the rest of the batter ready. In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar together until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add the flax/water mixture, yogurt, and vanilla, and beat another minute. Add the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and spices, and beat on low for 30 seconds. Add milk and beat for 30 seconds more, or until combined. Scrape down bowl, add in apples, and mix gently until incorporated. Spoon into muffin tin until each muffin is 3/4 full. Bake for 5 minutes at 425, then turn the temperature down to 350 (leaving the muffins in the oven), and bake an additional 15-18 minutes at 350. The muffins are done when they are slightly brown, and a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Let the muffins cool, and store in an airtight container. They are best eaten within 2-3 days, and can be frozen for later. Enjoy!
