Total cook time
- 11 tablespoons O Organics® granola
- 2 tablespoons Signature Kitchens® canola oil
- 1/2 cup brown sugar (packed)
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 1 large egg
- 3/4 cup whole wheat flour
- 1/4 cup unbleached white flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup low fat Lucerne® buttermilk
- 2 cups diced apple (with skin) (about 1 large)
Preheat oven to 375º. Line the cups of a muffin pan with paper or foil liners. Sprinkle 1 1/2 teaspoons granola in the bottom of each muffin liner.
In mixing bowl, beat canola oil, brown sugar, vanilla extract and egg together until light and fluffy, scraping sides of bowl a couple of times.
In large measuring cup, combine the flours, baking powder and salt and whisk to blend. Add flour mixture and buttermilk, all at once, to egg mixture in mixing bowl. Beat on low speed just until blended, scraping down the sides of the bowl after 5 seconds. Stir in diced apples.
Divide batter between 11 muffin cups (about a scant 1/4 cup each). Sprinkle 1 1/2 teaspoons of granola over the top of each muffin. Press down gently with spoon so it sticks nicely to batter. Bake for 20 minutes, or until muffins are lightly browned and the tops spring back after being pushed.
