  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup quick cooking oatmeal
  • ¾ cup light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup milk or apple cider
  • ½ cup applesauce
  • ¼ cup oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup finely chopped apple

Streusel Topping

  • ¼ cup quick cooking oatmeal
  • 2 Tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 Tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons melted butter
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.  Spray a 12 count muffin tin with cooking spray or line with paper liners and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, combine the flour, oats, sugar, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, applesauce, oil, and vanilla.  
  • Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and add the wet ingredients, stirring just until combined.  Fold in the chopped apple, then divide evenly between the 12 muffin cups.  
  • Combine all of the streusel ingredients together in a small bowl, then sprinkle over each muffin.  Bake the muffins for 15 to 20 minutes until a toothpick inserted into the center of the muffins comes out clean.  


You could swap ½ cup of whole wheat flour for ½ cup of the all-purpose flour.  Adapted from All Recipes.
