I took the challenge this month to try to feed my kids a better breakfast, things that do not come from a package. My kids love muffins and loved a similar muffin I made from my nutrition plan. I based this on a recipe from the Eat-clean Diet cookbook by Tosca Reno. So here is my version:
1 cup of dry oatmeal
1 cup of unsweetened homemade applesauce
1/2 cup of skim, fat free or almond milk (i am realizing now i added a full cup - no wonder it wasnt as thick as expected)
2 egg whites, beaten
2 Tbsp + 1 tsp canola oil
1 Tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup of blueberries
1) preheat oven 375 be sure to spray your muffin liners as there is very little fat in this.
2) Combine first 5 items in a medium bowl. In another bowl mix the dry ingredients including berries. Add wet ingredients and mix until combined.
3) Fill muffin cups 2/3 full and back. Full size muffins will take 15-20minutes and mini muffins took about 12 minutes.
Everyone seemed to enjoy them, even David stole one!!
