  1. Line a muffin tray with liners. Preheat the oven at 175°C.
  2. In a hot pan, add butter, diced apple, sugar & rosemary. Let the mixture simmer till the apple softens. Cool down the mixture & keep aside.
  3. Grind the oats to flour. Now take a bowl & sieve the flour along with baking powder, baking soda & salt.
  4. In another bowl, whisk together the oil, sugar & yogurt. Add vanilla essence & whisk again.
  5. Add the flour to the wet mixture followed by the apple mixture & gently fold it in until combined. Do not over mix. We want a lumpy batter.
  6. Use an ice cream scoop to fill  ¾ th of the muffin liner. 
  7. Add some almond flakes on top of each muffin.
  8. Bake in the preheated oven for about 15 mins or till a toothpick comes out clean. 
  9. Once done remove from the oven and cool on a cooling rack for a bit and serve them warm or let them cool completely & store in an airtight container.
