Buttermilk Granola Muffins

Buttermilk Granola Muffins

Buttermilk is the secret ingredient in these moist and satisfying apple granola muffins. I was itching to try out the silicone muffin liners I picket up at IKEA a while back and it was pouring rain so it seemed like a good time to bake (plus was hungry ahaha).

This is adapted from Buttermilk Granola Muffins but I added a grated apple, upped the cinnamon, added an egg and used coconut oil instead of vegetable oil. This is one yummy muffin. Next time I think I cut the sugar to 1/2 cup. With the granola and the apple a full cup is probably not necessary.


  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1 cup granola (any kind you like)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 cups buttermilk
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil (melted and cooled)
  • 1 grated apple (any old kind)
  • 1 tsp vanilla


  1. Preheat your oven to 4oo degrees F.
  2. Whisk all the dry ingredients together in a large bowl.
  3. In a medium sized bowl, mix the wet ingredients together.
  4. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and fold until just combined. Try not to over mix.
  5. Place spoon batter into a 12 cup muffin tin (lined or greased).
  6. Bake 25 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean.

Makes 12 large muffins.
