Thought to be derived from the French moufflet, meaning soft bread, or the German muffie, meaning a type of cake, the American muffin differs. Muffins are a sweet quick bread made in individual serving molded in an infinite variety of flavors. In this unique recipe, oatmeal is baked into a muffin to be served hot or cold. This recipe is great for a grab & go breakfast or snack for the entire family or someone who wants to begin meal prep!
Preheat the oven to 350. Spray a standard muffin tin with cooking spray and set aside.
In a medium bowl, whisk together egg white, egg, milk, applesauce, and vanilla extract until combined. Whisk in brown sugar. Switch to a spatula or wooden spoon and stir in oats, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt until combined. Gently fold or mix in chopped apples.
Portion evenly into prepared muffin tin and bake for 20 minutes, until muffins are beginning to brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
Serve hot, or, allow to cool before transferring to an airtight container. Store in the refrigerator until ready to serve. Microwave for 30 seconds until hot, before serving.
