TASTE News Service, February 12, 2019 – Here’s  a simple recipe that sounds like a good breakfast option any time of year, but especially now while the weather’s chilly.

The recipe is from the website of the Washington Apple Commission and, though the ingredient list looks long, many of the components are items that most home kitchens would already have on hand. The following recipe should make 25 muffins.



3 cups all-purpose flour

1 cup whole wheat flour

2 cups sugar

2 teaspoons baking soda

2 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

2/3 cup plain non-fat yogurt

1/2 cup orange juice

1/2 cup maple syrup

6 egg whites or 1 cup non fat egg substitute

1/4 cup canola oil

1 1/2 tablespoons vanilla extract

2 teaspoons dried orange peel

1 quart/1 lb grated carrots

1 quart/1 lb shredded Washington apples



1. In mixing bowl, blend flours, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg.

2. In separate bowl, blend yogurt, orange juice, maple syrup, egg whites, oil, vanilla, orange peel, carrots and apples.

3. Stir apple mixture into dry ingredients just until moistened; do not over mix.

4. Portion 1/3 cup into paper-lined or non-stick muffin tins. Bake in preheated 375 F oven for 22 to 25 minutes, until tops spring back when lightly touched.
