Featuring sweet apples and sharp cheddar, this is a flavor combination most often seen in pie recipes, but you can have these fruit filled muffins for breakfast! Why not cook up a batch to keep on hand as an exciting way to start the day? This recipe was created by Deirdre Holmes, who writes the blog Plan It Healthier. Makes 12 muffins - 2 cups all-purpose flour - 1/­­4 cup wheat bran - 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon - 1 tablespoon baking powder - 1/­­2 teaspoon salt - 1 large apple, finely chopped - 4 ounces sharp cheddar cheese, grated, divided - 1/­­2 cup maple syrup - 2 large eggs - 1 cup milk - 4 tablespoons butter, melted - 2 tablespoons plain yogurt or sour cream - 1 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice - 1/­­3 cup raisins - 1/­­3 cup dried cranberries - 1/­­3 cup chopped walnuts Preheat an oven to 375 degrees F. Coat a 12-cup muffin tin with nonstick cooking spray. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, wheat bran, cinnamon, baking powder and salt. Fold in the apples and three-quarters of the cheddar cheese. Reserve the remaining cheddar. In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, butter and yogurt. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and pour the milk mixture into the well. Stir until just combined. Fold in the lemon juice, raisins, cranberries and walnuts. Evenly divide the batter among the muffin cups. Sprinkle each muffin with some of the reserved cheddar. Bake 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of one of the muffins comes out clean. The post Apple Cheddar Muffins appeared first on Meatless Monday.
