Oatmeal Applesauce Muffins

That's right... no butter, no oil, no bleached flour, and no yolks in this recipe! Doug and I had a craving for something filling and warm for breakfast, yet healthy and nutritious. I saw this recipe on Deborah's cute blog and decided I would finally give whole wheat flour a try. Turns out it is quite delicious! I should have substituted whole wheat flour for regular flour a long time ago! If you haven't made the switch already, you should give it a try.

Oatmeal Applesauce Muffins
Yield: 12 Muffins

1 C. Old-Fashioned Rolled Oats
1 C. Non-Fat Milk
1/2 C. Unsweetened Applesauce
2 Egg Whites
1 C. Whole Wheat Flour
1/2 C. Brown Sugar
1 tsp. Baking Powder
1/2 tsp. Baking Soda
1/2 tsp. Salt
1 tsp. Cinnamon
1 tsp. Sugar

Soak the oats in the milk for approximately one hour. Preheat the oven to 400F degrees. Prepare a muffin tin by spraying it with non-stick spray (no liners necessary). Combine the oat/milk mixture, applesauce, and egg whites in a medium bowl until combined. In another bowl, combine the flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon; whisk to combine. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients; stir. Don't stir too much though! Spoon the mixture into the prepared muffin tins. Sprinkle a pinch of sugar on top of each muffin. Bake for 20 minutes, remove from pan, and cool on a wire rack. Muffins freeze well.
