Apple and Oat Muffins
I love making
This is one of my
I like to mix up a batch and keep it in the fridge overnight. Then I just pop them in the oven for 20 minutes. By the time I’ve finished my wake up coffee, they are ready to eat. Instant breakfast – what could be easier?
The company that Graham works for doesn’t have a canteen, so these Apple and Oat Muffins are ideal for popping in with his sandwiches. I also pack a couple for him when he goes fishing.
You can make the muffins with grated apples, but I’ve found that using a spiralizer is so much more fun. A couple of turns of the handle and you have a pile of apple spaghetti. You don’t have to core the apple either – the spiralizer just cuts around the core and you can throw it away when you are done.
You need to chop the spiralized apples into shorter lengths so that they distribute evenly in the muffin batter.

How to make apple and oat muffins
Mix the muffins
- The first step is to mix the oats and wet ingredients together. Leave the mixture to stand and soak while you prepare the other ingredients (image 1 above).
- While the wet ingredients are soaking, spiralize (or grate) the apples and chop roughly with a sharp knife. You have to chop the spiralized apples so that you can distribute them evenly through the muffins.
- Sift the dry ingredients into a large bowl (image 2 above). Add the apples and mix to coat (image 3 above).
- Pour in the oat and milk mixture (wet ingredients) and give it a stir until just combined. Do not overmix (image 4 above).
- If you are adding additional ingredients such as sultanas or nuts, cut and add them now.
Prepare the muffin tins
- Line a muffin tin with paper cases and spoon in the mixture.
- Sprinkle each muffin with a little brown sugar. This will give a lovely crispy topping to the baked muffin.
Bake in a pre-heated oven (200C / 400F) for about 20 minutes until well risen and golden.
