These are the kind of muffins I like-home made! Apples have numerous good qualities about them-so the saying goes “An apple a day keeps the Doctor away”. Apples contain fiber, which lowers the cholesterol, contain a good source of flavonoids, and are low in calories.Oats help keep our heart healthy, provide fiber and nutritionally, contain good carbohydrates. Oats have many uses, particularly in cereals, but also can be used as a filler in making meat casseroles, burgers and meatloaves.
