Apple-Oat Muffins

2 c. shredded, peeled McIntosh apples (about 3/4 lb). *
1-1/2 c. AP flour
1 c. quick-cooking oats
2/3 c. packed brown sugar
1-1/2 t. baking powder
1/2 t. baking soda
1/2 t. salt
1/2 t. ground cinnamon
1/4 c. fat free milk
2 T. vegetable oil
1 t. vanilla extract
1 (8 ounce) carton plain low-fat yogurt (I used fat free strawberry from Publix)
1 large egg

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  • Place apple on paper towels, squeeze until barely moist. Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups, level with a knife. Combine the flour and next 6 ingredients in a medium bowl, stir with a whisk. Make a well in center of the mixture. Combine milk, oil, vanilla, yogurt, and egg, stir well with a whisk. Add to flour mixture, stirring just until moist. Stir in apple.
  • Spoon batter into 12 muffin cups coated with cooking spray. They will be almost full. Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes or until muffins spring back when touched lightly in center. remove muffins from pans immediately; place on a wire rack.
