What I Eat

Apple Cherry Muffins

Although this recipe has all-purpose flour and granulated sugar, I decided to make it because it has a lot of healthy ingredients. I also like the texture of muffins made with some white flour. To stay under 10g sugar, eat 1/2 of a muffin. Or, bake them in a mini muffin pan instead.

Makes: 12 muffins

1 egg
3/4 cup whole milk
3/4 cup dried cherries
1 green apple, peeled, cored, and finely chopped or shredded
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup quick cooking oats
1/3 cup sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon allspice
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/4 cup ground flax seed

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a muffin pan with paper liners. In a bowl, beat egg and milk together. Separate any cherries that are stuck together. Add all the rest of the ingredients to the egg and milk mixture and stir until combined. Divide batter equally between muffin cups and bake for 15 to 20 minutes. Have with a glass of water and a good source of protein that doesn’t have sugar, such as a scrambled egg.
