Five. Just five minutes of prep is all that stands between you and a dozen of these easy Cinnamon Apple Oatmeal Muffins.
That means by the time the timer goes off and you open the door of your oven to revel in their deliciousness, you’ve already cleaned up the kitchen and poured yourself a glass of milk to enjoy one or two of them. Or five. I won’t tell.
Five minutes of prep, you ask? Absolutely! These muffins get their quick start thanks to three cups of my Homemade Oatmeal Muffin Mix.
Besides the oatmeal muffin mix, you need just two apples – Granny Smiths are my favorite for these Cinnamon Apple Oatmeal Muffins! – an egg, milk and cinnamon.
To me, the apples and cinnamon, area a classic autumn – or anytime! – flavor combination.
How to Make Cinnamon Apple Oatmeal Muffins
No need to pull your mixer out of the cabinet or grab any other special equipment. To make these Cinnamon Apple Oatmeal Muffins, you simply need a bowl and a spoon.
The five ingredients are stirred together and in a minute or less. The key to perfectly uniform Cinnamon Apple Oatmeal Muffins? A large cookie scoop.
I’ve been using one of these scoops to make muffins for over ten years and can’t imagine not having it my kitchen.
Want to up the apple quotient in these muffins? You can make these Cinnamon Apple Oatmeal Muffins with applesauce as well.
Simply substitute 1/4 cup of applesauce for the egg called for in the recipe.
If you’re willing to go one extra step to make these Cinnamon Apple Oatmeal Muffins truly bakery worthy, I love to add a few extra diced apples to the top of each muffin along with a sprinkle of oats prior to sliding them into the oven.
The difference in what the final product looks like is astounding!
