Harvest Apple and Banana Muffins

It’s apple picking season in New England. I got home and made some delicious Apple Banana Muffins. Here’s my tip: I always substitute 1/2 cup low fat yogurt for 1/2 stick of margarine.  Every recipe comes out moist and flavorful.

These are great for breakfast and lunch box snacks too! Enjoy…. Tia Maria


2 1/2 cups flour

3/4 cup brown sugar

1/4 cup regular sugar

1 stick margarine

3 eggs

1 tsp vanilla

1 1/2 tsp baking powder

1 1/2 tsp baking soda

1 cup mashed ripe banana

1 cup finely chopped apple

1/2 tsp salt

8 0z container low fat vanilla, banana or any yogurt



1/2 cup of quick cooking oats

1 tbsp flour

1 tbsp melted margarine

1/4 cup brown sugar

1/4 cup regular sugar

1/4 cup chopped walnuts

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon


Pre heat oven to 350. In a large bowl mix the melted butter with the sugars until creamy, add eggs and mix well.  Add the vanilla. Mix all the dry ingredients in a bowl. Mix the apple, banana and yogurt in a small bowl.

Blend the 1/2 dry ingredients into the egg and sugar and mix well.  Add all of the apple mix into batter.

Add the remaining dry ingredients then add nuts. (If your batter is too dry, just add more yogurt or crushed banana & apple)

Make Topping: Mix all ingredients until a crumbly mix forms.

Place the batter  into 12 small, or 6 large greased muffin tins and cook for about 25 minutes or until cooked. (use toothpick method)
