Whole Wheat Apple Muffins

One of the greatest fears that most people have about eating healthy is that famous saying:

"If it tastes good it is bad for you, spit it out!" also "Eating healthy is expensive!"

...And that is the biggest pile of poo I have ever heard. Everything  I cook is delicious and well worth sharing. I also have a mere $200-250 grocery budget for 3..and we make due each month! So I will share some of my favorite recipes here and there, as well as my favorite markets to buy cheap and affordable food!

This is my all time favorite (and Scarletts) dessert recipe! Enjoy!

1 1/2 c. all purpose flour, divided
1 1/2 c. peeled, chopped Golden Delicious apple
1/2 c. whole wheat flour
1/3 c. firmly packed brown sugar
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 c. skim milk
3 tbsp. vegetable oil
2 egg whites, lightly beaten
Vegetable cooking spray

Combine 1/2 cup all purpose flour and apple in a bowl, tossing gently to coat; set aside. Combine remaining cup all purpose flour, whole wheat flour, and next 4 ingredients in a bowl; make a well in center of mixture. Combine milk, oil, and egg whites in a bowl; stir well. Add milk mixture and apple mixture to flour mixture, stirring just until dry ingredients are moistened.

Spoon batter into muffin pans coated with vegetable cooking spray, filling 2/3 full. Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes. Remove muffins from pans; let cool on a wire rack. Yields 1 dozen (about 149 calories each).
