Since i had sooo many apples this week from my apple picking outing, i decided to make apple muffins. This recipe was inspired by Gwyneth Paltrows cookbook, my father’s daughter.

INGREDIENTS

1 cup spelt flour light

1 cup whole wheat flour

2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/4 tsp sea salt

2 tsp cinnamon

1/2 cup vegetable oil

1/2 cup pure maple syrup

1/2 cup milk of choice – organic, almond, soy

2-3 apples of choice chopped into small cubes

Topping

1/4 cup rolled oats

1/4 cup whole wheat flour

1/4 cup spelt light flour

1/4 cup brown sugar

1 tsp cinnamon

1 tbsp milk

2 tbsp organic butter or earth balance margarine

1/8 tsp sea salt

DIRECTIONS

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Line and spray a 12 cup baking tray or use silicone cups. In a bowl sift flours, baking powder, baking soda, sea salt and cinnamon. In another bowl mix oil, maple syrup and milk. Chop apples and place to the side. Mix dry ingredients into wet ingredients and then fold in apples. Scoop batter into muffin cups.

Topping

Combine flours, oats, brown sugar, cinnamon, salt, butter and milk. Use you fingers to mix until the topping becomes crumbly. Place topping onto each muffin and then bake for 25-30 minutes. Take out of oven and cool for 5 minutes. Transfer to a cooling rack for 10 minutes. Enjoy!
