Mornings do not agree with most teenagers and my youngest was a strong testament to that fact. During her high school years, muffins were Kelsey’s answer to eating in class when lunch was late and morning was early. I made lots of muffins in those years, this is one such recipe.
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup whole-wheat flour
1 cup brown sugar
1 tsp. baking soda
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg
1 cup plain yogurt
1/3 cup vegetable oil
2 cups diced, peeled apple
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Preheat oven to 375˚.
In a large bowl mix flours, sugar, baking soda and spices.
In a med. bowl, beat egg, then add yogurt, oil, apple and cheese. Add to flour mixture all at once and stir just until moistened.
Spoon into greased (or paper-lined) muffin tins.
Bake 375˚, 18-20 minutes. Makes 12-18 muffins.
