Peanut Butter Apple Muffins


  • 3 cups all-purpose flour (OR half whole wheat flour and all-purpose flour)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 tsps baking powder
  • 2 eggs
  • 2/3 cup light agave nectar (OR 1/2 cup light brown sugar)
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup applesauce (OR 1/2 cup applesauce + 1/2 cup vegetable oil)
  • 1 large apple, peeled and finely diced, about 3/4 cup
  • 3/4 cup granola


  • Preheat oven to 400 F. Grease a 12 hole cupcake pan with nonstick cooking spray or line with cupcake papers.
  • In a large bowl combine both flours, baking powder, and slat and mix until well combined. In a separate bowl, beat together the eggs, agave nectar, peanut butter, milk and applesauce. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix until just combined.
  • Spoon the batter into the prepared pan or muffin cups, filling holes 1 cm from the top. Sprinkle with a tablespoon or so of your favorite granola. Bake at 400 F. for 5 minutes and then reduce oven temperature to 350 F and bake for another 12-15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. The high temperature at the beginning will help ensure high-domed muffins.
  • Remove from pan and cool on wire rack. Muffins will be more moist and flavorful on the second day.
