Oat and Apple muffins- Secret recipe club 19th December 2011

This is my 5th assignment with the Secret Recipe Club.The aim of the club is that you are allocated a blog from which you have to select  a recipe and try  it and blog about it.

My assigned blog was Adventures in Dinner. The blog  is very interesting with snippets of the writers daily life incorporated into the recipe posts.I chose to bake  the healthy muffins from the blog .The Original recipe can be found here. The only changes I made were I replaced the egg with apple sauce and the berries with some chopped apples. I also increased the sugar as original recipe said 1/4 cup, when I made the 1st batch they were not sweet enough for our palate so cut them up and made a trifle with them.  I remade them again this time adding 3/4 cup sugar.They were very healthy, a little dense and didn't rise as much as a normal muffin , texture was more like a scone ,still they were thoroughly delicious and delectable.

This recipe yeilded 18 mini muffins.

Delicious, soft and delectable muffins that are perfect for a healthy treat.


1 cup rolled oats
1 cup of buttermilk
1 cup flour, 1 tsp baking powder,
1/2 tsp baking soda, dash salt,
3/4 cup brown sugar,
2 tablespoons apple sauce
4 tablespoons  melted butter 
1 cup chopped apples


1. Soak the oats in buttermilk and keep aside.
2. Sieve together the flour salt and baking soda.
3. In another bowl add the melted butter, apple sauce, sugar and mix well.
4. Add the soaked oats and chopped apples to the flour mixture and fold in the wet ingredients.
5. Spoon mixture in to muffin cases and bake in a pre heated oven at 350 degrees F / 175 degrees C for 20 minutes until  golden brown.
6. Remove from oven and transfer to a wire rack to cool.

  19. I've just started baking again and on the look out for easy recipes with not a huge number of ingredients I've never heard of. This recipe fits the bill perfectly and the recipe sounds delicious, my partner loves apple crumble so I'm sure he'd love these too. I may even make some on Christmas Eve.
