Buttermilk Muffins with Apples and Cinnamon
Author: 
Recipe Type: Baking
Serves: 12 muffins
 
"Everyday" muffins that are anything but ordinary and are still hearty enough for breakfast. Fluffy with a crunch from the apples and walnuts.
Ingredients
  • cooking spray
  • 1 medium Granny Smith apple, peeled, cored, and diced
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 1½ cups whole-wheat flour
  • ½ cup ground flaxseed
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ cup chopped walnuts, toasted
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup buttermilk, at room temperature
  • ½ cup unsalted butter, melted
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400F. Spray a muffin tin with cooking spray and set aside.
  2. Whisk together sugar, flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon in a medium bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk together eggs, buttermilk, and butter. Gently fold the buttermilk into the flour mixture, just until combined. Fold in the apples and the walnuts.
  3. Divide batter among the muffin cups, filling about ¾ths of the way full. Bake muffins for 16-18 minutes, until browning around edges and springing back when touched. Allow to cool for 5 minutes before transferring out of the muffin tin and onto a wire rack to cool completely.
