There’s nothing quite like warm, fluffy muffins emerging from the oven in the morning to get the kids (and grown-ups) out of bed. Rolled oats and whole-wheat flour make this variation of an apple crisp healthier than your average muffin. — Will Budiaman


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Grease a muffin tin with cooking spray to prevent sticking and set aside. In a large bowl, whisk the flour, oats, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and spices together until well combined. Add the applesauce, sugars, and maple syrup, then stir until almost combined. Add the apples, stirring until just combined.

Spoon into muffin cups ¾ full. Sprinkle additional oats and brown sugar over the top, if desired. Transfer to the oven and bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 18-25 minutes.
