Apple Chunk Muffins (whole wheat, vegan)

Great way to use up apples! The original recipe had a ton more sugar- glad I reduced it. Feel free to further reduce sugar- I bed removing the 1/3 C brown sugar wouldn't impact it too much.

1.5 C whole wheat flour
1/2 C oats
1/3 C brown sugar (or omit for less sweet muffin) 
2 tea baking powder
1 tea baking soda
1/4 tea salt
2 tea cinnamon
1/4 tea nutmeg
1/8 tea ground ginger

Now add and stir to combine into a batter:
1 C unsweetened applesauce
1/8 C maple syrup

Fold in 1 C chopped or diced apples.

Pour into greased muffin pan.  Optional: top with turbinado sugar or oat flakes.

Bake at 350 F for 18-25 minutes.

Freezes well- good as a lunch box treat or brunch/breakfast.
