Cran-apple Granola Muffins

Here’s a new way to enjoy granola- in a tasty muffin with cranberries and grated apples.

1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1 egg
 3/4 cup buttermilk*
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 1/4 cups grated peeled apple
1 1/2 cups granola (I used Rogers Cranberry Almond Supreme 5 Grain Granola)
1/2 cup dried cranberries

Preheat oven to 375. Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt and stir well. Set aside. Beat together egg, buttermilk, oil and brown sugar. Stir in apple. Add dry ingredients to liquids all at once and stir just until blended. Gently stir in granola and cranberries. Spoon into prepared muffin tins. Bake 20-25 minutes until tops lightly browned. (*To substitute for 3/4 cup buttermilk, use 2 tsp lemon juice plus enough milk to make 3/4 cup).

I’ve never baked anything with granola before. I thought maybe it would make the muffins crunchy and I wasn’t sure about that, but it softens up very nicely when baked and adds a delicious flavour. I served these at a playdate and they were enjoyed by all. One of the girls grabbed one to go on her way home!
