Fresh Apple Muffins

These muffins are another example in controlling the ‘mindless margin.’ Each muffin is 100% whole wheat, made with extra virgin olive oil, no added sugar, fresh apples – perfect for breakfast on the run, snack, or dessert at less than 100 calories. If you usually buy the 300-calorie white flour fatty muffins – you’ve saved 200 calories. Remember to redefine the 200 calories as 20 pounds in a year – I think that’s very motivating. No matter if your focus is Mediterranean-style eating, managing the ‘mindless margin’ or eating a healthy diabetic diet – you can accomplish it with these muffins.

Ingredients:

2 cups of Dr. Grandma's Whole Wheat Muffins Your Way Mix (with accompanying 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil)
½ teaspoon cinnamon, if desired
2 extra large eggs (or 1/2 cup egg substitute)
½ cup water
2 ½ cups fresh chopped apples, (Good choices are: Roma, Rome Beauty, Fuji, Granny Smith, Jonathan, McIntosh, Newton Pippin, Rhode Island Greening, or Winesap)
Cinnamon and sugar (or sweetener of choice), if desired

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Coat the standard 12-cup muffin tin with vegetable spray.

Mix the Muffins Your Way packet and cinnamon. Mix the two extra large eggs or ½ cup egg substitute, the water, the oil, and the apples. Mix the apple mixture with the flour mixture. Do not over mix. Fill the muffin tins. Sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar mixture, if desired. Bake for 16 to 20 minutes. Remove from the muffin tin. Can be frozen.
