apple muffin bites

Filed under: Uncategorized — by Rachel @ 2:27 pm

Man, what’s up with my pictures? I just don’t feel like any of them have been too gorgeous lately.

Since cookies and little bite-sized things are easy to transport and share, I made these for the PSA meeting tonight. They weren’t too terribly sweet, so I sprinked them with cinnamon sugar.

2 c. unbleached flour (I used 1 1/2 c. whole wheat + 1/2 c. all-purp)
1 1/2 t. baking powder
1 1/2 t. baking soda
1/2 t. salt
2 t. cinnamon
1 t. nutmeg
1/2 c. sugar
1 1/2 c. apples, diced
1/2 c. raisins, soaked in warm water and drained
1 c. rice milk, or other
1 T. ground flax seed + 3 T. warm water (let it sit for a while)
1/2 c. applesauce
3 T. vegetable oil (or applesauce or a combination)
1 t. vanilla extract
cinnamon sugar and ground flax seed for topping (optional)

Preheat oven to 375F. Grease a 12-muffin pan for the former or two cookie sheets for the later.
Sift all the ingredients from flour through sugar together in a bowl and stir to combine. Toss in the apples and raisins and mix it up again.
In a separate bowl, combine your non-dairy milk, flax slurry, applesauce, oil (or more applesauce), and vanilla. Add that to the dry mixture and stir until just combined; don’t overmix it, please.
Spoon batter evenly into the muffin pan, or do like I did and drop the batter by rounded tablespoonfuls onto your cookie sheets. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar and ground flax seed, if ya wanna. Bake them 14-16 minutes (probably more for full-sized muffins), checking for brown-ness around the edges at the 14-minute mark. Place them on cooling racks (or paper towels) to cool completely. They’re best if they sit around for a while and get moist.
Share with your friends.
Makes 12 muffins or about 45 muffin bites.

  1. They still look yummy! Yes, I am finding lately that you really don’t need to add too much sugar into the recipe if you sprinkle the tops with sugar. it seems to overcompensate nicely : )
