Apple Cinnamon Baked Oatmeal Muffins

Every so often, I have a craving for something sweet (but not too sweet) to go along with a cup of tea or coffee. Or for something that is a great grab-and-go sort of breakfast. These muffins fit the bill, and are easy to make and tasty, too!

Adapted from Emily Bites
Serves 12

Ingredients:
Cooking spray (I use my misto)
2 cups old-fashioned oats
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
¾ teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 egg white
1 egg
¾ cup skim milk
2/3 cup unsweetened applesauce
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
2/3 cup peeled chopped fresh apples

Directions:
1. Preheat the oven to 350. Lightly mist 12 cups in a muffin tin with cooking spray.

2. Combine the oats, brown sugar, baking powder, cinnamon and salt in a large bowl and stir until thoroughly mixed.

3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the egg white, egg, applesauce, milk and vanilla. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir until blended together. Fold in the chopped apples.

4. Spoon the oatmeal mixture evenly between the prepared muffin cups. Bake uncovered for 18-22 minutes or until oatmeal is lightly browned and a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean.

    1. Thanks Kasha! I wanted a baked oatmeal recipe that didn’t use artificial sweetners, and I actually reduced the amount of sugar in the original recipe, and they turned out great. And they froze well too, which is a bonus for me (since I love to have a grab-and-go sort of item in the freezer). Enjoy!
