I made these muffins this past weekend as another alternative to eat after a workout and also as a breakfast or snack on the go for the little miss who runs my life :) They are very filling and packed full with yummy and good for you ingredients. I originally found this recipe on Pinterest off the blog Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans and have made it a few times now. If you can’t eat them all in a few days you can always freeze the rest and pull one out and microwave to warm quickly.
Oatmeal Applesauce Muffins:
- 1 cup old fashioned rolled oats (not instant)
- 1 cup nonfat 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
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp sugar
- raisins or nuts
You can also add in wheat germ, flax seeds, or chia seeds. Anything that you want to add to give it that extra healthy punch.
Yield: 12-14 muffins
Preheat your oven to 400* F and either spray muffin pan with cooking spray and line it with muffin liners.
Soak the oats with the cup of milk in a large bowl for one hour.
(Oats will soften and soak up some of the milk)
After an hour of soaking combine the applesauce and egg whites with the oatmeal mixture and mix with a spoon till just combined.
In a separate bowl combine with a whisk the wheat flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and whatever other add ins you would like. (wheat germ, flax seeds, chia seeds)
Add the wet ingredients to the dry and mix until just combined. Add in raisins or nuts and then spoon into muffin tin.
(Don’t over mix the batter because the muffins will become tough)
Once spooned into muffin tin sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar mixture on top of each muffin.
Bake at 400*F for 20-25 minutes. Let them cool before trying to remove from linear.
I promise you will love these. They are so yummy and filling. I hope you guys enjoy them as much as my family did. Let me know what you think:)
