Apple Walnut Muffins - Sugar Free

If you like muffins but don't want all that sugary taste that goes along with some of them, then you will love this recipe! It is full of apple flavor and not over powered by too much sugar.

I changed the original recipe to include a very important step that adds more apple flavor. Hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do!

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup apples, chopped
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1 cup milk
1/2 cup plain yogurt
1/4 cup melted butter
1/4 cup Splenda (for the non-SF version use 1/4 sugar)
1 egg
3 tsp baking powder
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1/2 tsp salt 

1 cup apples, chopped
1 tbsp vegetable oil
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tbsp Splenda (or sugar if you prefer) 

- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Grease 12 muffin cups or line with paper liners

- In a small sauce pan add 1 tbsp vegetable oil, 1 cup of apples, 1 tsp cinnamon, 1 tbsp Splenda (or sugar if you prefer). Stir on Medium heat for 6-7 minutes (or until mushy). Set aside to cool.

- Mix the remainder of the ingredients (except for the topping) together using a wooden spoon. Batter will be lumpy. Fill muffin cups 2/3 full. Take a teaspoon of the Topping and place into the center of the batter of each muffin cup.

- Bake for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the muffin comes out clean.

Make 1 dozen.
