I had some VERY Sweet/Spicy Apple butter to use. So I eliminated the extra brown sugar/spice. I kept the molasses. I increased the Apple butter to 1 cup and eliminated the oil. shook about a tsp of nutritional yeast in. DELICIOUS. I may try with all Whole Wheat pastry flour next time, rather than 1/2 WW and 1/2 White.
Spiced Apple Butter Bran Muffins
These muffins are dense, grainy, fruity and delicious. A double dose of apple—diced fresh apple and dark, spiced apple butter (Smucker's brand is good)—makes them extra moist and flavorful.
5 Reviews for Spiced Apple Butter Bran Muffins
Wonderful, flavorful muffins. I made these because I noticed they called for apple butter and I had a half jar of homemade left in the fridge from a friend that I didn't want to waste......not a mistake! I also make my muffins in Texas muffin tins so I got 6 beauties baked for 30 minutes. They make lovely gifts too!
Added 1 and a half finely chopped apples, and used low fat buttermilk. Sprinkled oats on top. Muffins turned out moist and stayed good for a couple of days.
Since my family doesn't think they like raisins I substituted dry cranberries. These are incredible!
