Macintosh apples and a double dose of oats add a boost of nutrition to these crowd-pleasing muffins.


  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 cup quick-cooking oats

  • 2 ¼ teaspoons baking powder

  • 1 teaspoon coarse salt

  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • ¾ cup sugar

  • 2 large eggs

  • 1 stick unsalted butter, melted and cooled

  • ½ cup whole milk

  • 1 Macintosh apple, peeled and cut into ¼-inch dice (1 ¼ cups)

  • Crumb Topping for Muffins(optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a standard 12-cup muffin tin with baking cups. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, oats, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon. In a separate bowl, whisk together sugar, eggs, butter, and milk. Stir wet ingredients into dry ingredients, then stir in apple.

  2. Divide batter evenly between muffin cups, adding a scant 1/4 cup to each. Sprinkle with crumb topping if desired. Bake until tops spring back when lightly touched, about 20 minutes. Cool in pans 5 minutes, then remove to wire rack to cool completely.
