  • ¼  tsp. ground nutmeg
  • ½  tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • 1 cup peeled, chopped gala apple
  • Optional: coarse sugar to top and ½ cup chopped pecans or walnuts


Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray a muffin pan with nonstick spray.

In a large bowl, whisk all ingredients together, except for the apples and nuts. Using a spoon or rubber spatula, fold in the apples and nuts. The batter will be wet. Spoon batter evenly into muffin cups, making sure both the oats and apples and liquid are in each. Fill all the way to the top.

Cool 5 minutes before serving. Refrigerate for up to 1 week.
