Applesauce Oatmeal Muffins
Wow I can't believe that it's been so long since my last blog update. The passed few months have been crazy, and the kitchen remolding didn't help matters either. Now that things are finally getting back to normal, I'm hoping to blog more frequently, especially now that the holidays seem to be right around the corner.
With that said I just had to share with you all a recipe I found online for applesauce muffins. As most of you know I hate giving Jonathan the same thing all the time so I am always looking for something new to make.
Sometimes in the morning he has a hard time waking up for daycare and seeing that my husband and I are always in a rush to get to work, this is the perfect breakfast to give him in the car on the way to daycare. This recipe is so good, you would never think it was low on calories. The muffins bake up lite, fluffy and moist. didn't change anything ton this recipe because I found the recipe to be perfect the way it was.
Recipe from http://recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-detail.asp?recipe=5763
WHAT YOU WILL NEED:
1 cup old fashion rolled oats
1 cup non-fat milk
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
2 egg whites
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. sugar
WHAT YOU'LL NEED TO DO:
Soak the oats in milk for about one hour.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
Spray muffin pan with cooking spray or you could do what I do and use liners.
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.
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.
