Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal Muffins – Deliciously moist and fluffy cinnamon-spiced muffins that are loaded with oats and apple chunks. Perfect for an indulgent breakfast or snack!
I love to enjoy a muffin or two in the mornings for an indulgent breakfast, or even for a delicious on-the-go snack.
These Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal Muffins have been hitting the spot, and satisfying my cravings for early autumn baking, too.
These muffins are moist and fluffy (as well as being a little dense), perfectly spiced with cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg, and LOADED with apple chunks. I’ve added oats for extra delicious chewiness – YUM!
How to make Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal Muffins
Ingredients you’ll need:
- Plain/all-purpose flour
- Quick oats
- Baking powder
- Ground cinnamon
- Ground ginger
- Ground nutmeg
- Large eggs
- Caster/granulated sugar
- Buttermilk: See my recipe notes below on how to make your own.
- Vegetable oil
- Vanilla extract
- Apples: You’ll need 2 small apples, peeled, cored, and chopped into small chunks.
To make these muffins, simply start by whisking together the flour, oats, baking powder, salt, and spices. Set aside.
In a separate large mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs and sugar until thick and light in colour. Add the buttermilk, oil, and vanilla, and whisk until combined.
Add the dry ingredients in thirds and whisk in until just combined – do not overmix. Fold in the apple chunks. The mixture will be thick and somewhat lumpy.
Spoon the mixture into a muffin pan lined with muffin cases (filling to the tops), and bake for 15 – 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out clean.
Allow to cool for 5 – 10 minutes in the pan before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
