Eating Chai Spice Apple Muffins for breakfast is a given, but they are also yummy for a snack when the munchies hit or even for dessert. These delicious muffins are made with good-for-you ingredients such as old-fashioned oats, whole wheat flour, apples and a few of your favorite nuts. I used pecans in this recipe. Substitute an egg with a flax egg which is easily made with ground flaxseeds and water.
Or, you could use aquafaba which is the juice from a can of chickpeas. Yes, it acts like an egg since it has the protein from the beans in it. If you've never heard of aquafaba, here's a list of 20 things you can make with aquafaba. You can also whip aquafaba into beautiful white peaks. Who knew.
Chai spice mix is a warming aromatic delight from India often used in tea and it's easy to make your own mixture with ground ginger, cinnamon, cardamom and nutmeg with a pinch of cloves. You could use this to add to your tea, as well, about 1/4 tsp per cup.

There's a touch of maple syrup in this recipe BUT if you're staying away from sugar, you could substitute stevia, 1 tsp powdered stevia or 6-9 drops of liquid stevia. Here's a stevia conversion chart that may come in handy.
