  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees and line muffin tin.
  • Peel, then shred the apples until you reach the core using the large side of the box grater. Put in a strainer to remove juice.
  • Spoon flour into measuring cups and level with a knife. Place flour in a large mixing bowl and add oats, walnuts, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. Stir with a whisk.
  • Combine milk, oil, vanilla, yogurt and egg whites, stirring until well blended in another bowl.
  • Add wet ingredients to flour bowl and stir until just moist. Squeeze shredded apple to get rid of excess moisture, then add and stir.
  • Spoon batter into a lined 12-cup muffin tin. Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes.
  • Let cool for 5 minutes, then serve.

Cooking Tip

Apples that are crisp and crunchy work best, such as granny smith or fuji. For less mess, use an ice-cream scooper to spoon batter evenly into each slot. Add powdered ginger or nutmeg for a warm “spice cake” flavor.
