Healthy Apple Oatmeal Muffins made with whole wheat flour, new SweeTango® apples and chai spices. Completed with a light vanilla bean glaze for a particular treat!
Whew! I’m finally back in Chicago after a crazy couple of days in Minneapolis with Lee and Katie. I believe I’ve mentioned several times that I’m focusing on an exciting fresh project for the Perspiration Series! Don’t worry, we’ll be letting you in on all of the details soon but basically it will be the BEST HEALTH System EVER.
This post is in partnership with SweeTango® apples
My apple yearnings started regress to something easier in August when my mom was visiting; we adored noshing on SweeTango® apples after our long 12 mile bicycle rides across the lakeshore. I had been obsessed with raspberries all summertime, but the tastes were beginning to fade; a crispy, juicy apple sounded both refreshing and delicious.
For the past few years, the best apple has been the SweeTango® They’re sweet, incredibly crunchy, wonderful for baking and something of my favorite afternoon snacks.
Usually I warm-up a little honey almond butter to pair with my apple slices. And when you want to try something fresh, sprinkle of sea salt together with your apple slices to contrast the sweet flavors. SO SO SO SO GOOD.
Another snack I know of course you like? Muffins! I made a decision to bake a batch of healthy apple muffins made with whole wheat grains pastry flour, maple syrup, applesauce chai spices (cinnamon, cardamom, cloves and ginger!) and clean apple chunks! The chai spices will make your home smell insanely great, you know one particular smells you want to container up and maintain forever and ever.
To top it all off, a light cream cheese vanilla bean glaze. Both adults and kiddos will love them.
The best way to take pleasure from these muffins is warm with just a little almond or peanut butter. Enjoy as a snack or an instant breakfast on the go. They’re refrigerator friendly, too!
Okay I’ve gotta go catch up on Westworld now. Have you been watching?! SO EXCELLENT. xo!
