Serves 12 | Prep Time 15 minutes | Cook Time 18-20 minutes

Ingredients

2 cups all purpose flour
1 cup sugar, divided
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon, divided
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups shredded apples (about 2 medium)
1 cup lowfat buttermilk
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1/4 cup coconut or canola oil
1 egg, slightly beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla


Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.; line a 12 cup muffin tin with cupcake liners.


In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, 3/4 cup sugar, baking powder, 2 teaspoons cinnamon, and salt. In another bowl, stir together the shredded apples, buttermilk, peanut butter, oil, egg, and vanilla. Combine the wet ingredients with the dry, stirring until just mixed, being careful to not overbeat. Spoon the batter into the muffin tins. Combine the remaining sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle evenly over the muffin tops.


Bake for 18-20 minutes, or until the tops spring back when lightly touched. Cool on a wire rack.

Notes

Have you ever dipped apples in peanut butter? Good stuff, right? Now imagine this combo in a muffin! Shred the apples, peel and all, add some buttermilk, mix in the peanut butter and sprinkle it all over with some cinnamon-sugar. Holy Yum!
