Flaxseed Apple Muffins

Sorry! It's me again. I made these muffins this morning. So healthy and really yummy (just don't overcook them like I did - totally forgot they were in the oven). I am big fan of flaxseed and throw it in where I can. Give them a try!

1 3/4 cups whole wheat flour
3/4 c ground flax seed
2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 large egg
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/2 cup plain nonfat yogurt
1/2 tsp vanilla
2 apples, peeled and cored

STEP 1: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. In a large bowl combine the dry ingredients (flour, ground flax seed, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon).

STEP 2: In a medium bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients (egg, brown sugar, yogurt, apple sauce, and vanilla). Core and chop the apples into small pieces.

STEP 3: Pour the wet ingredients into the bowl of dry ingredients. Stir just until combined. Fold in the chopped apples just until they are evenly distributed. Try not to over stir the mixture or else the muffins may become tough or rubbery.

STEP 4: Spray a muffin tin with non-stick spray or line with paper cups. Evenly distribute the muffin batter between 12 muffin cups. Bake in the preheated 400 degree oven until golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean (about 20-25 minutes). Remove the muffins from the tin and let cool on a wire rack.
