Hello!

Ever since I was a young child baking has been passion of mine. Whether you are alone, chilling with friends or even just really stressed out and needing a way to relax, baking for me has always been a place for me to go. Baked goods are not just delicious but are also extremely fun to make and when you gift someone something your created with your very own two hands, it makes it that much more special. I have never been one for sports, dance or any of those co-curriculars because I am not all that coordinated, so baking is the way I love to pass the time and is a skill I have been working on for a great number years now. This blog is a place where my love of baking and photography meet hand in hand and is also a place filled with my all time favourite recipes. So join me on my baking journey, it does not matter who you are and why you want to learn, just dive in or "dig in" and lets make some SCRUMPTIOUS food!

Healthy Apple Cinnamon Muffin Tops

Healthy Apple Cinnamon Muffin Tops

Fact: muffins are the best. Another fact: muffin tops are certainly better than the bottom of the muffin. When I was small I used to take the bottom of the muffin (and still do to this day). When I was watching the series Gilmore Girls a couple weeks ago one of the supporting charactors, who is a chef and is named Sookie, made muffin tops for Lorelai because of how much more superior they are in comparison to the bottoms of muffins. This epsiode gave me an idea to make muffin tops myself! I hope you enjoy this healthy twist on the apple cinnamon muffin!

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of course oats
  • 1 cup of whole wheat flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons of ground cinnamon 
  • 1/8 a teaspoon of sea salt (or table salt)
  • 2 teaspoons of coconut oil
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 a cup of agave syrup 
  • 1/2 a teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 1 cup of diced apple

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit and line a baking sheet with parchment paper
  2. Melt coconut oil and leave to cool (this is important so the egg does not cook)
  3. Combine oats, flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt in a large bowl. 
  4. Whisk together the coconut oil, egg, agave syrup, and vanilla extract
  5. Combine the wet and dry ingredients and then add in the apple.
  6. Spoon the mixture onto the baking sheet (about 1 inch apart) as you would with cookies.
  7. Bake for 12-15 minutes (or until golden brown)
  8. Leave to cool 
  9. Enjoy!
