Low Fat, Easy, Cheap Apple Cake or Muffins

I was craving apple muffins, but the A&P never wants to bake them. I looked for a box mix in the baking aisle, but the only one available was Jiffy. If you're familiar with Jiffy muffin mixes you'll know my grief. They are not very tasty muffins made as the package directs. But I was determined to eat some good apple muffins - so I bought the mix and began modifying. Ingredients 1 box Jiffy apple muffin mix 1 egg beaten 1/4 cup skim milk 1 single server cup of no sugar added apple sauce 2 packets maple and brown sugar or apples and cinnamon instant oatmeal 1 large red delicious apple peeled, cored and diced 1 lime 1 tsp nutmeg 1 tsp cinnamon if using the non cinnamon oatmeal 2 tbls sugar or real maple syrup Jiffy mix is very unsweet. So adding some sweetener with make it better. You can forgo this step if you enjoy mildly sweet desserts. The apples and oatmeal with sweeten things up quite a bit. Preheat oven to 375 degree F and spray a 9 inch round cake pan
