Apple Cinnamon Muffins with Apple Butter Filling

16 Aug

These Muffins are a “Mommy’s on a Diet” original! Far more delicious, and better yet, far lower in calories, than I could have hoped. I’m super happy with how these little gems turned out, and my kids love the little apple butter surprise in the center. You’ll be hard pressed to find another muffin under 130 calories that tastes this good!!!


  • 1 1/3 cups all purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup quick cook oats
  • 1/3 cup splenda brown sugar mix
  • 2 Tsp baking powder
  • 1/8 Tsp Salt
  • 1/4 Tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/2 an apple, diced
  • 2 Egg Whites
  • 1/2 Cup 1% Milk
  • 1/4 Cup water
  • 1 Tbsp Canola Oil
  • 1/4 Cup Lite Syrup
  • 12 Tsp Apple Butter


1. Place the Oats in a food Processor and chop until they become more like a powder or grainy flour.

2. Mix all Dry ingredients (flour-cinnamon) in a medium sized bowl.

3. In a smaller bowl, mix all wet ingredients except Apple Butter (Egg whites-Lite Syrup). Whisk together until smooth.

4. Add wet ingredients with dry, and stir until everything’s well incorporated. Add Apples and stir them in.

5. Spray a 12 count muffin pan liberally with non-stick spray.

6. Scoop 1/4 cup of muffin batter into each cup.

7. Spoon Apple Butter into one corner of a ziplock baggie. Carefully cut a small piece from the corner of the baggie where the apple butter is contained. This allows you to use the baggie as a piping bag.

8. Dip the cut tip of the baggie into the center of each muffin, and squeeze gently, inserting about 1 tsp of apple butter into the center of each muffin.

9. Bake Muffins on 400 for 12-15 minutes, or until they bounce back when touched on the top.

10. Allow to cool about 10 min before serving. Center is hot.
