Feel-Good Apple Muffins
These apple muffins are EVERYTHING in my life right now – moist and dense in a good way, perfectly but not overly sweet, and just honestly divine smeared with a little butter and honey.
Oh, one other helpful little thing: they’re wholesome. Real-food healthy ingredients. Feel-good for the body.
Here’s a universal scenario that happens to us food lovers almost every day in the fall.
- I want to bake a cozy treat!
- Wait though, I don’t have a ton of time.
- Wait though, I also don’t want to eat 100 grams of sugar.
Enter: THESE apple muffins of the 100% comforting and treat-like but also healthy variety. They are made with:
- Maple syrup
- Olive oil
And if you’re now in muffin hog mode, we have a ton of muffins that follow this same cozy-treat-but-also-healthy policy!
Enjoy. Like seriously, take a pause, breathe in that warm cinnamony muffin in front of you, and just enjoy this cozy moment.
Oh, and the low-on-time part? All you do is blend and pour into a muffin tin. Very unfussy.
Top with flaked unsweetened coconut if you’re really keeping it clean. Top with butterscotch chips if you walk on the wide side.
And even though they don’t *need* it, just the tiniest bit of butter with the quickest drizzle of honey will just take the whole thing to an entirely new fall baking level.
And there you have it. Talk about FEEL-GOOD! I have been eating these on repeat for little “coffee breaks” throughout the day and happily sharing them with my daughter as one of those unicorn “treat” foods that feels both special and also wholesome.
