Ok, I have been really bad with updating this blog. I realized that when I went to look through my pictures and found these muffins, which I made back when I was still doing my new years resolution of eating healthy. Clearly I gave that up about a month ago! But one recipe that I am still going to make is this one – these healthy (93 calories per muffin!) treats are surprisingly delicious and alleviated some of that guilt I feel each time I bake.

Directions

  • Soak the oats in milk for about one hour.
  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  • Spray muffin pan with cooking spray.
  • Combine the oat mixture with the applesauce and egg whites, and mix until combined.
  • In a separate bowl measure and whisk the dry ingredients together.
  • Add wet ingredients to dry and mix until just combined. Add nuts or raisins if desired.
  • Do not over mix the batter or the muffins will be tough. Spoon muffin mixture into muffin pan.
  • Combine the cinnamon and sugar and top each muffin with some of the mixture.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes or until done.
  • Remove from pan, cool and enjoy.
  • These can be frozen and reheated in the microwave for a quick breakfast.
