Made with fresh or canned apples, you will love these super easy oaty muffins. Perfect for school lunches and freezing.
This recipe for Apple Oaty Muffins has been super popular with my followers. Muffins are a great treat the whole family can enjoy at any time of the day. I like to keep these in the freezer and pop into lunch boxes in the morning.
Made from basic pantry staples with the addition of oats, these muffins are a great source of fibre! Either fresh or canned apples can be used in this recipe.
How to make Apple Oaty Muffins:
Preheat the oven to 190°C fan bake and grease a 12 pan muffin tray. Then, mix together the melted butter with sugar, milk, eggs and oats. Sift in the self-raising flour and stir everything together.
Add the canned apple and cinnamon to the bowl and fold it together until just incorporated. You don't want to over mix your muffins or they will get tough. Divide the mixture evenly between 12 muffins pans. Sprinkle sugar and cinnamon over the top of each muffin.
Bake your muffins until they are golden and cooked through. If you want you could make a double batch to freeze some for later. Perfect for school lunches, simply freeze muffins once they have completely cooled down in a ziplock bag or airtight container.
Muffins are great for school lunches or morning teas. Popular muffin recipes on my website include Banana Muffins with Lemon Icing and my decadent Caramilk Muffins. If you haven't tried it yet, my amazing Apple Slice is another great way to bake with apples.
Common questions about easy Apple Muffins:
Can I use fresh apples instead of canned? Absolutely. Any variety of apple will work in this recipe. Use 2 cups of peeled and finely diced or grated apples.
Do these muffins freeze well? Yes! Once the muffins have cooled completely, place they in an airtight bag in the freezer. If you put a frozen muffin in a school lunch box in the morning, it will have defrosted by midday (and will help to keep the rest of the lunch cool!).
