No Flour, No Sugar Blueberry Oatmeal Muffins

Submitted by: NAYNAY333

Introduction

I don't eat any kind of flour or refined sugars, so finding a recipe for a tasty muffin, with a good consistency/texture, was nearly impossible. I finally made up my own using No Flour, No Sugar, No Oil and the result was a heavenly Oatmeal Blueberry Muffin! Enjoy!!

Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    *1/2 cup milk (I used 1%)
    *1 cup quick oats - (you will grind 1/2 cup of the oats in food processor or coffee grinder until flour consistency)
    *1/2 egg
    *2 tbsp unsweetened (no sugar added) applesauce
    *2 tbsp Splenda (or other sweetener/sugar)
    *1 tsp baking powder
    *1/4 tsp cinnamon
    *dash of salt
    *1/4 tsp vanilla (optional)
    *1/4 cup frozen (or fresh) blueberries (about 4 or 5 blueberries per muffin) - could use bananas, apples or even carrots! Add nuts if you like. Of course, nuts alter the stats a tad :)

Directions

Preheat oven to 425 degrees

Grease muffin cups or line with paper muffin liners.

In a small bowl, combine the milk and HALF the oats (remember the other 1/2 of the oats will be ground as used as the flour substitute); let soak for 15 minutes.

Grind 1/2 cup quick oats in food processor, coffee grinder, etc. until the consistency of flour.

In a separate bowl, beat together egg and applesauce; stir in oatmeal mixture.

In a third bowl, combine ground oatmeal (flour), splenda/sugar, baking powder and salt. Stir flour mixture into wet ingredients, just until combined. Mix in gently desired fruit and/or nuts.

Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups until cups are 2/3 full.

Bake in preheated oven for 15 to 17 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean.

Makes 6 muffins

  • I believe this recipe has great potential, it was good....but if you are looking to satisfy a sweet tooth you may want to increase the sugar, vanilla etc...I used vanilla and a tablespoon of honey.
    The muffin itself turns out great! - 11/22/10

  • I like using the oatmeal for flour and will try this recipe again. I may try and sweeten it a bit more though.... perhaps some honey. I also forgot the vanilla - that may help too. - 7/14/09
