Applesauce Cinnamon Oat Muffins Recipe

Publisher Photo
My grandmother passed this recipe down to me, and I'm eager to share it with my children. The down-home muffins are tender on the inside and have a crispy topping of oats, brown sugar and cinnamon. I've even added raisins and cranberries to the batter for a different taste. —Hannah Barringer Loudon, Tennessee

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 6, 2014

These were delicious and filling! I actually got 12 muffins out of this recipe. I did substitute a few things: white whole wheat flour for AP, splenda and 1/2 t molasses for brown sugar inside muffins (I used regular brown sugar for the topping) and almond milk for the skim milk. I also added 1/4 t nutmeg to the batter and a dash of nutmeg to the topping. Muffins were just under 150 calories and less than 22 net carbs with my changes. I will definitely make these again.

Even better with finely chopped apple in batter. Makes 12 muffins easily.

I tried these with whole wheat flour and they still turned out great! Easy healthy breakfast.

Yummy, I used chunky homemade applesauce and left the topping off.

very good - fast, inexpensive and tasty - just how we like them. I also used a whole egg since I was only making the muffins. May also try adding some nutmeg and apple chunks in the future.
