Miniature Apple Muffins Recipe Photo - Diabetic Gourmet Magazine Recipes

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup Splenda No Calorie Sweetener, Granulated
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 2 teaspoons molasses
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup apple juice concentrate, thawed
  • 2 teaspoons grated fresh lemon peel
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup peeled, shredded fresh apple
  • 2/3 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1/2 cup raisins


Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Lightly spray miniature muffin pans with vegetable cooking spray; set aside.
  2. Beat Splenda Granulated Sweetener, butter, and molasses at medium speed of an electric mixer 1 minute or until blended. Add eggs, one at a time, beating until blended after each addition; add apple juice concentrate and lemon peel, beating until blended.
  3. Combine flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, soda, and salt; add to Splenda Granulated Sweetener mixture, beating on low speed just until blended. Stir in apple, oats, and raisins.
  4. Spoon batter into prepared pans; filling three-fourths full. Bake until edges are lightly browned, 12 minutes. Remove to wire racks to cool.

Notes:

With the right amount of spice and a sprinkling of raisins, these bite-size muffins have the flavor of an old-fashioned apple cake.
