Substitutions

If you’re not into raisins, you can feel free to leave them out, or even replace them with another ingredient such as dried cranberries.

Equipment needed for this recipe

For these grated apple muffins, use a muffin tin lined with muffin liners to bake the muffins without having them stick to the sides. A food processor is needed to grind up some of the oats to a flour consistency. Mixing bowls will be needed for combining the ingredients, and a whisk will help combine the ingredients. A cookie dough scoop will help you scoop equal amounts of the dough into the prepared muffin tin.

Expert Tips

Keep in mind that these muffins are meant to be a little bit chewy like baked oatmeal since the main ingredient of the dough is oats.

I made the recipe with a few little tweaks. I had no flax seed and I added walnuts. Shredding the apples was challenging so I just used a slicer on them. I made large muffins instead of the mini muffins and they were nice and moist on the inside.
