Apple Muffins seem like Fall to me! I cleaned out my kitchen cupboards today, and took inventory of the pantry items that I have stashed away. I had a pound bag of Roman Meal Organic Cream of Rye hot cereal, and baking mix that intrigued me. On the back was a recipe for Roman Meal Hearty Muffins. I made a couple of changes to the recipe to upgrade the ingredients. I used whole wheat pastry flour which works well in muffins. I increased the cream of rye, and decreased the flour amounts, and reduced the oil and substituted olive oil for vegetable oil. I also left the skins on the apples, and substituted coconut milk for milk. I need to bake dairy-free treats for my son.
The muffins rose well. I doubled the recipe, and made 24. If you are going to mess up your kitchen, double the recipe, and freeze half of them for a later date. Muffins are great for grab and go breakfasts, or treats for another day!
