Applesauce, Blueberry Oatmeal Muffins



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!!
