Whole Grain Apple Oatmeal Muffins



You would never guess these muffins are so healthy!  
The freshly shredded apple makes them incredibly moist and gives a gentle, sweet flavor that is perfect for breakfast, brunch, or a mid-day snack.  Plus, serving them in cupcake liners makes them feel like dessert!

I was excited to try these silicon baking cups from Brighid's Kitchen because of their fun spring colors and the fact that they're reusable.  Great for baking, or freezing small portions! 

Kids love them for their texture and color, and they help make cooking with the little ones even more fun.  Mine loves building 'castles' with the cups while we're collecting ingredients around the kitchen.
