These are some tasty muffins and ones you don't have to feel bad about eating! They have limited sugar and are made with oats and whole wheat flour. The applesauce gives them a slightly different texture than if oil were used, but it did not take away from the flavor. I liked them as a basic muffin and my husband turned them into dessert with a layer of cream cheese frosting on the top!
This recipe makes 12 muffins.
1 C old fashioned oats
1 C unsweetened applesauce
1/2 C milk
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla
4 TBSP butter, melted
1/3 C sugar
3/4 C whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
Preheat the oven to 375.
Line 12 muffin tins with liners or a thin layer of cooking spray.
In a large bowl, combine the oats, applesauce, milk, egg, vanilla, and butter.
Add in the sugar, flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt.
Mix until just combined (you don't want to over mix or you will have tough muffins).
Divide the batter evenly into the 12 muffin tins.
Bake for 15-20 minutes (until a toothpick comes out of the center, clean).
Let the muffins cool on a cooling rack.
These muffins freeze well (don't put them in the freezer until they are cooled completely)!
