I am always looking for a healthy alternative. This recipe for oat muffins with dried apricots made with whole wheat flour, olive oil, and greek yogurt fits the bill.
The basic oat muffin has a nutty flavor. Adding the dried apricots adds a bit of a sweet bite.
Dried apricots are a healthy addition to your recipes. They are considered a low glycemic index food which means they don't impact your blood sugar in an unfriendly way. They are packed with calcium, vitamin C, and vitamin A. In addition, apricots contain a large amount of fiber. 1 In fact, a serving of 5 dried apricots contains 4 grams of fiber.2
Apricot Oat Muffins
These muffins mix up and bake quickly.
Using a mix of all-purpose flour with white whole wheat flour helps increase your whole grains. This mix also keeps the texture of the muffin light.
Substituting low-fat Greek yogurt, and a milk alternative with olive oil, helps lower the saturated fat in the muffins.
Oats add whole grain and also a nutty flavor.
Finally a streusel-topping adds a little crunch and sweetness to the muffin.
