Delicious Apple Oatmeal Muffins, an easy recipe made using apple pie filling to create moist, scrumptious muffins.
If you love baked goods with oatmeal, you have come to the right place!
I used store-purchased apple pie filling for these muffins, but if you make your own apple pie filling, that would work equally as well!
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups rolled oats
1 tbsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1 cup milk
1 cup liquid honey, divided
1/3 cup butter, melted
1 can (19 oz./540 ml. size) apple pie filling, coarsely chopped
1 cup finely chopped pecans, divided
In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, oats, baking powder and salt.
In another bowl beat the eggs slightly (using a whisk), and then stir in the milk, 3/4 cup of honey and the melted butter.
Add the milk mixture, the apple pie filling, and 1/4 cup of nuts to the dry ingredients, and stir just until combined.
Spoon the muffin batter into 15 large size greased or paper-lined muffin cups, about 3/4 full.
Sprinkle the remaining 3/4 nuts over the muffin batter in the baking cups.
Bake at 400° F for about 25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Remove muffins from the oven, and, while they are still hot, drizzle with the remaining 1/4 cup of honey.
Makes 15 large size apple muffins.
If you have whole nuts on hand, simply chop them finely by placing them between waxed paper or inside a plastic bag, and rolling over them with a rolling pin - works great!
