It’s Apple Time Again!


 Is there anything more delish than a fresh, tree-ripened apple? I think not. 😉

As I’ve said (again and again) I love Autumn for so many reasons.

Apples and the fall harvest of tree fruits and root veggies are a big part of why.


A  favorite Apple Muffin recipe.


Recipe at end of this post.  Hope you enjoy them too.

What is your favorite apple recipe? If you can, please share a link to it.

 Happy Harvesting and Cooking.


Applesauce Oatmeal Muffins

A great way to use up leftover applesauce. Makes  10-12 large muffins. An ideal lunchbox treat!!!

1 C. buttermilk

1 C. unsweetened (see note below) applesauce (preferably homemade)

1 egg (preferably free range) beaten

¼ C. vegetable oil

½ C. raw brown sugar

1 C. uncooked rolled oats

½ teas. sea salt

1-2  teas. ground cinnamon(to taste)

1/2 teas. ground nutmeg or cloves

2 teas. baking powder

1 teas. baking soda

1 ¼ C. unbleached white flour

½- ¾  C. chopped walnuts or pecans (opt.)

Preheat oven to 400. Thoroughly grease muffin tin and set aside. In a large bowl, combine first 4 ingredients. Gradually stir in brown sugar and mix well.

Combine remaining dry ingredients in a medium-sized bowl and add to liquid mixture, stirring just enough to combine, don’t over mix or muffins will be tough.

Fill muffin tins 2/3 full. Bake 12-15 minutes, until done.Reduce heat to 375 after first 5 minutes, if muffins are browning too much.

Note: If using presweetened applesauce, adjust brown sugar accordingly.
