Apple Walnut Muffins | Eggless Apple Walnut Muffins

Eggless Apple Walnut Muffins

The month of Mega Marathon – April is finally here. Every year during the month of April and September, I along with other BM participants post recipes under certain theme for a month long except Sundays. I started participating in this month long marathon from 2015. This is my third year. This time it is quite a challenging theme, A to Z baking from multiple countries and we cannot repeat a country more than twice. Challenges are difficult, but this one is fun and exciting. As I have to share a lot more about the recipe, let me dive into it right away.  I am starting my day 1 with Apple Walnut Muffins.

The challenging part in this theme was picking the recipes. I found a lot of recipes that are pretty popular in multiple countries. Some recipes that got originated in one place became famous in some other place. But I took this to my advantage and mixed and matched according to the alphabets. ;-) My very first recipe is one such example. Muffins are individual sized baked bread product. English muffins are flat disk-shaped whereas the ones in US and Canada are like cupcakes. Today I am going to share the cupcake muffins precisely apple walnut muffins.  These are perfect breakfast muffins, and you can prepare them well ahead and freeze them even.   These muffins are pretty popular in both US and Canada. :-)

All the 26 bakes are going to be egg-less, and I will explain the substitute I used in each and every recipe. For this muffin, I went with unsweetened applesauce as the egg substitute. For all the fruit based bakes, you can use this or banana puree as the egg substitute. :-)

As this is my 3rd year of Mega Marathon, I wanted to recap what I posted during 2015 (I know, I need to revisit these recipes and click the pictures again. ;-) ) and 2016 so here they are,

Eggless Apple Walnut Muffins

 

Ingredients:

  • All-purpose flour – 1 ¾ cups
  • Baking Powder – 2 tsps
  • Cinnamon – 1 tsp
  • Salt – 1/8 tsp
  • Apple Sauce – 1 cup + 1/3 cup (egg substitute)
  • Brown Sugar – ½ cup
  • Apple – 1
  • Canola Oil – 1/3 cup
  • Toasted Walnuts – ¼ cup

Equipment Required – Muffin Tray / Muffin cups (optional)

Prep – Work

  • Peel the apple skin and grate them.
  • Chop the walnuts and set aside.
  • Sieve the flour if required
  • As I used the muffin cups, I did not grease them. But if you are planning to pour the batter directly into the muffin tin, grease them with baking spray.

Steps:

  

  • Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a large bowl, combine the sieved flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt.
  • In a separate bowl, mix the applesauce, sugar, grated apple and oil.
  • Combine the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients.
  • Mix them well and fold in the walnuts.

  • Divide the batter into the muffin tin. Add more nuts on top.

  • Bake for 20 to 25 minutes. Check around 20 minutes by inserting a toothpick. If it comes out clean, then it’s done, else bake for five more minutes but not more than that.

Notes:

  • Instead of grating the apple, you can chop them into small pieces. In fact, the original recipes call for chopped apples, but I went with grated ones.
  • This method requires one egg, and I replaced it with 1/3 cup of apple sauce. But you can use any other egg substitute too.
  • If the Apple is not sweet enough, increase the amount of sugar.
  • Allow the muffins to cool before storing them. You can freeze them as well and warm it up in the microwave before serving.

    Applesauce is a wonderful egg substitute. The muffins came out so soft and delicious. Looking forward to seeing your more bakes this month.

    Your Apple muffins have turned out great..I love how you are going to explain each substitute for each post, very nice one. I always think about the science behind each substitute when I do..and so nice that you are linking back to your previous mega BMs..

  3. I am so looking forward to your month long bakethon ;) :) Seriously this one seems very challenging and kudos to you for taking this up for the 3rd year. I so want to join in, but scared if I would be able to manage (even the monthly 3 recipes per week)

    • Thanks a lot CH. We knew the theme long ago but still last moment baking only ;-) Still have few recipes to prepare, hoping things will fall in place. Fingers crossed.

  4. Sowmya:)

    Apple and walnut is such a classic combination and your muffins look amazing and very inviting!
    Looking forward to all your posts for the rest of the month

  5. Muffins are one of my favorite bakes and I bake them with any ingredient that I have in hand. It is a great way to use different fruits, nuts and flours and works great for breakfast or for snacking. Apple sauce is a great substitute for eggs when baking muffins and quick breads. I am looking forward to your rest of the bakes!

Would love hear back from you. Drop in your feedback and comments. Thanks
