Applesauce Oatmeal Muffins

Try mixing up a batch of these filling muffins and freezing the leftovers. They warm up wonderfully in the microwave when every minute counts during those morning rush hours.
  • 1-1/2 c. (4-1/2 oz.) uncooked oats
  • 3/4 c. flour
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 c. unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/4 c. skim milk
  • 2 Tbsp.+2 tsp. vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup Splenda
  • 1 egg, beaten, or equivalent in egg substitute
  • 1/4 c. raisins
Preheat oven to 350. In a large bowl, combine oats, flour, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Add applesauce, milk, veg. oil, Splenda, egg, and raisins. Spray muffins tins with butter-flavored cooking spray or line with paper liners. Spray the liners with baking spray so they will peel off easily.

Fill 12 muffin wells 3/4 full. Bake 20-25 min, or until muffins test done.

Hint: fill unused muffin wells with water. It protects the muffin tin and ensures even baking.

Serves 12 - freezes well - 2 points per muffin

Note: Try add one peeled and diced apple to this recipe. You can also sprinkled them with splenda and cinnamon (combined). It really punches them up and makes them super moist and delicious. Just warm them for about 10-12 seconds in the microwave.

Come on in for a nice cup of coffee and a chat about my weight loss journey as well as all the healthy recipes I have found, including WW points and/or nutritional information if available. I am eating a vegetarian diet and concentrating on getting healthy and hopefully weight loss will follow. Thank to all my readers for their ongoing support.
