These hearty muffins make a nice breakfast, on-the-go snack, and are fabulous with a cup of coffee or tea on a cold day.
Ingredients
  • 2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
  • 2 tablespoons wheat germ or ground flaxseeds
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ⅓ cup natural granulated sugar
  • 1 cup applesauce
  • 2 tablespoons safflower oil
  • ⅓ cup plain or vanilla nondairy milk, or as needed
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup granola, divided
  • ½ cup chocolate chips, optional
  • ¼ cup raisins, dried cranberries, or dried cherries, optional
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Combine the first 6 (dry) ingredients in a mixing bowl and stir together.
  3. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture and pour in the applesauce, oil, and enough nondairy milk to make a smooth, stiff batter. Stir together until thoroughly combined.
  4. Stir in ⅔ cup of the granola, followed by the optional chocolate chips and dried fruit. Using dried fruit is recommended if your granola doesn’t contain any.
  5. Divide the batter among 12 foil-lined muffin tins.
  6. Sprinkle the remaining granola evenly over the tops of the muffins.
  7. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until the tops of the muffins are golden and a knife inserted into the center of one tests clean. When cool enough to handle, transfer the muffins to a plate or rack to cool. Serve warm or at room temperature.
