apple buttermilk muffins

Who said yummy food has to be complicated? Who said yummy and healthy food has to be complicated?

Not me, that's for sure. These apple buttermilk muffins are not only great-tasting, but they're healthy too. With rolled oats, grated apple, and cinnamon among the ingredients, these muffins are perfect both hot and cold. Served hot, these'd make an excellent on-the-go breakfast, or a yummy desert when served with a dollop of cream. Eaten cold, these are great for afternoon tea or quick snack. 

They're fluffy and moist, dense, but not too dense, and they even have a slight bite to them thanks to the green apple.

Apple Buttermilk Muffins
Makes 12

1 cup self-raising flour
¾ cup plain flour
½ cup traditional rolled oats
¼ cup caster sugar
60g butter, melted, cooled
1 ½ cups buttermilk
1 lightly beaten egg
1 tsp vanilla essence
2 green apples, peeled, grated
2 tsp brown sugar
1 tsp ground cinnamon

Preheat oven to 190C and line a muffin pan with paper cases.
Combine flours, oats, and sugar in a large bowl. Make a well in the center and add butter, buttermilk, egg, and vanilla. Mix until just combined then fold in the apple.
Spoon mixture evenly between the cases and bake for 18-20 minutes or until golden and just firm to the touch. Stand in pan for 5 minutes then transfer to a wire rack.

{And I haven't forgotten about that Nutella-donut recipe. Check back next week for it!}
