Muffin of the Week: Glazed Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal



INGREDIENTS 1 3/4 cups all purpose flour 1 cup old fashioned oats 1/4 teaspoon salt 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder 1 cup sugar 3/4 cup vegetable oil 2 eggs beaten 1/2 cup plain nonfat Greek yogurt 1 cup applesauce 1/2 teaspoon vanilla

GLAZE 1 1/2 c powdered sugar 3 T apple cider (you can also combine applesauce and powdered sugar to make the glaze, but I had cider to spare)

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees and grease your muffin pans. This recipe made 12 regular muffins and 12 mini-muffins.
  2. In a large bowl, mix by hand flour, oats, salt, cinnamon, and baking powder. Set aside.
  3. In another bowl, mix sugar, oil, eggs, yogurt, applesauce, and vanilla, then stir into dry ingredients until just combined.
  4. Spoon batter into muffin tins and bake for 10-15 minutes for mini-muffins, 15-20 for regular muffins, and/or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  5. Remove from the oven and whisk together the glaze ingredients.
  6. When the muffins have cooled for a bit, remove from the pan onto a cooling rack and spoon the glaze over the top. Allow the glaze to set before slicing.
