Apple Oat Muffins

Well, apparently vegan muffins are what Zoey craves so the quest for "healthyish" muffins forges onward! This recipe comes directly from Food For Life, by Neil Bernard. You can find the complete recipe here. Note: I add 1/3 cup of water because otherwise the muffins come out a little dry.

Also, it's a good idea to let your apple juice concentrate defrost before adding it to the mix. I learned that lesson the hard way the first time Zoey and I made these.

Fresh gala apples. I love apple season!

Muffins fresh from the oven. These taste like healthy muffins but they are pretty good. The apple pieces in the muffins are actually awesome and I may substitute apples again in future muffins when the recipe calls for raisins. These are definitely worth making- the neighbors loved them and I noticed Zoey's dad tossing more apple juice concentrate into the grocery cart today so that we can make more!

Gala apples are lovely and those muffins look to die for. Zoey has good taste.

You really ARE on a muffin kick! These look and sound delicious-- plus I LOVE the idea of adding apple chunks instead when a recipe calls for raisins.

These sound amazing - and I was looking for way to use the apples I recent picked at the orchard!
