Apple Walnut Muffins

Prep: 15 min. Bake: 20 min. Makes: 6 servings


  • 1 cup chopped peeled tart apple

  • 1/2 cup sugar or less

  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour

  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • 1 large egg

  • 1/3 cup milk

  • 3 tablespoons canola oil

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract or maple syrup

  • 3 tablespoons chopped walnuts

  • 3 tablespoons raisins

  1. In a small bowl, combine the apple and sugar; set aside. Combine the flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt. In another bowl, whisk the egg, milk, oil and vanilla; stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Fold in the apple mixture, walnuts and raisins.

  2. Coat muffin cups with cooking spray or use paper liners; fill three-fourths full with batter.

  3. Bake at 375° for 18-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack. Serve warm. Yield: 6 muffins.

“A friend in New York gave me the recipe for these delightful muffins,” Margaret McNeil notes from Germantown, Tennessee. “They stay moist for days…if you have any left!”
