Apple Stuffing Muffins!! Yum!
Thanksgiving preparation is in full swing and here's a wonderful recipe that you can add to the table. We are going to make our bread cubes healthier by using Ezekial or sprouted grain bread.
Here ya go:
Makes 10-12 muffins
6 cups of bread cubes (8 slices of Ezekial bread)
1 cup of diced apples
1/2 cup of diced onion
1 1/4 cup chicken broth
1/4 cup no sugar added apple juice
1/2 tsp. sage
1/2 tsp. thyme
pinch of cinnamon
drizzle of maple syrup
First, we are going to make our bread cubes. Cut the bread into cubes. Arrange on a baking sheet and drizzle lightly with olive oil (or spray with olive oil spray). Broil on low for about 1 minute per side.
Now, preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Spray your muffin tins with olive oil spray
Saute your onion with olive oil and transfer this to a bowl. Add in your apple and spices. Mix everything else into the bowl except for the maple syrup. Press the mixture gently into the cups and drizzle a little maple syrup over each one. Bake for about 30 minutes. Yum!!
