Apple Spice Muffins

It's rare that we recommend a muffin as a nutritious snack, but these Apple Spice Muffins are one of those exceptions. Packed with whole grains and sweetened with date sugar, these muffins are a great way to get a serving of whole grains into your day while still being delicious. We don't recommend sitting down to a whole batch of these muffins, but enjoying one after a workout or when you need a pick-me-up is a fabulous way to refuel. Date sugar is, quite simply, dried dates that have been ground into a powder. If you're not able to find date sugar locally, you can snag a bag from our website or Apple Spice Muffins | Bob's Red Mill

Apple Spice Muffins

Prep Time: 15 minutes | Cook Time: 25-30 minutes | Yield: 12 muffins Topping
  • 1/2 cup Bob’s Red Mill Date Sugar
  • 1/2 tsp ground Allspice
  • 1/2 tsp ground Cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground Black Pepper
  • 1/4 tsp ground Clove
  • 1/4 tsp ground Nutmeg
  • 1 3/4 cup Whole Wheat Pastry Flour
  • 1 cup Bob’s Red Mill Date Sugar
  • 2 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground Cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground Allspice
  • 1/4 tsp ground Nutmeg
  • 1 1/2 cups Applesauce
  • 1/2 cup melted Coconut Oil
  • 3 Eggs
  • 2 tsp Lemon Zest
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1 cup diced Apple
  • 1/2 cup chopped Walnuts
Step 1 Preheat oven to 350°F.  Line a muffin tin with paper liners. Step 2 In a small bowl, combine the topping ingredients and set aside. Step 3 In a second small bowl, sift together the whole wheat pastry flour, Bob’s Red Mill Date Sugar, baking powder, salt, and spices. Step 4 In a large bowl, whisk together the applesauce, melted coconut oil, eggs, lemon zest, and vanilla extract. Step 5 And the dry mixture to the wet along with the diced apple and walnuts and fold gently until just incorporated. Step 6 Scoop the batter into the prepared muffin tin. Top each muffin with the topping mixture, dividing evenly between each, about 2 teaspoons per muffin. Step 7 Bake muffins until the tops spring back when lightly touched and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 25-30 minutes.

    Do you have the Whole Grain muffin mix in a package where I just have to add a liquid.

    Make this WFPB-no oil by using 3 flax eggs and replacing oil with banana, pumpkin, or pureed white beans. Or even more applesauce! I will be trying this soon.
