Delicious, without a lot of sugar, this simple Apple Oatmeal Muffins recipe is both mom and kid-approved


  • 2 cups oats/oatmeal (old-fashioned or quick cooking)
  • 1 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 c buttermilk*
  • 2 TB canola oil
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 cup shredded apple (12 medium)
  • 1/2 cup walnuts, chopped


  1. *If you don’t have buttermilk on hand, you can use sour milk instead. To make that – pour 1 TB of lemon juice into a glass measuring cup. Add enough milk to reach the 1 cup line. Let sit for 5 minutes.
  2. Heat the oven to 400º.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the dry ingredients.
  4. In another bowl, beat the buttermilk, oil, & egg; stir in apple. Add the flour mixture and stir just until moistened. Stir in walnuts.
  5. Spray muffin tin with non-stick cooking spray. Or use paper muffin cups and spray those too. (These muffins do stick)
  6. Bake 20-25 minutes or until tests done.
