I don’t know about you all but I am always so incredibly rushed in the morning I forget breakfast nine times out of ten.  I know it’s bad for me but when it’s between the snooze button and a bowl of cereal I’ll always pick those extra ten minutes of sleep.  A little while ago to counter my morning rush I started making things the night before or the weekend before that I could grab as I rush out the door in the mornings.  These muffins I made were great!  Very easy, and really delicious.  When I did it I made a dozen of them.  I know the ingredients list looks daunting but a majority of the ingredients I already had, here’s the recipe:


  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1-3/4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 3 tablespoons applesauce
  • 1 medium tart apple, peeled and grated (I chopped mine and it turned out fine, it’s a preference thing)
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons cold butter
  • 1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped nuts


  • In a bowl, combine the first six ingredients.
  • In another bowl, combine the egg, milk, oil and applesauce.
  • Stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Fold in the apple.
  • Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups two-thirds full.
  • For topping, combine brown sugar and flour. cut in butter until crumbly. Stir in oats and nuts. Sprinkle over muffins..
  • Bake at 400° for 18-22 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack.
