Apple Oatmeal Muffins.
My husband had made oatmeal this morning, our favorite way, with diced apples and cinnamon mixed in. We had some leftover and I got inspired to make muffins with it. I borrowed Alton Brown's basic Old-Fashioned Muffin recipe (have I mentioned my total geek-girl crush on him?) and added my own stir-ins. Here's what I did.
2 1/4 cups A.P. Flour, 2 tsp. Baking Powder, 1 tsp. Baking Soda, pinch of salt and 1 tsp Cinnamon sifted together.
1/2 cup Sugar, 1/2 Cup Vegetable Oil, 1 Egg, 1 Egg Yolk, 1 Cup Plain Yogurt whisked together until combined.
Stir the wet ingredients into the dry, then stir in 1 cup of cooked oatmeal (with apples and cinnamon) and 1/2 cup diced fresh apples. Spoon into muffin cups, top with an oatmeal struessell crumb (oats, butter, brown sugar and spices) and bake at 375F for 18-20 minutes.
