Beth's Blueberry Oatmeal Muffins

Beth's Blueberry Oatmeal Muffins

Introduction

This is a variation of the apple sauce muffins used in the spark diet. They have about 15 more calories, but the blue berries add a lot of flavor and nutrition! I also doubled the recipe because I like to freeze them, and added some ground flax. Photo is from a chocolate chip/banana version (add 4/25/2012) This is a variation of the apple sauce muffins used in the spark diet.

Number of Servings: 24

Ingredients

    Steel Cut Oats, dry, 1 cup (remove)
    **Flax Seed Meal (ground flax), 8 tbsp (remove)
    *Whole Wheat Flour, 2.5 cup (remove)
    *Musselman's Home Style Natural Unsweetened Apple Sauce, 1 cup (remove)
    Milk, nonfat, 2 cup (remove)
    egg white, fresh, 4 large (remove)
    Baking Powder, 2 tsp (remove)
    Baking Soda, 1 tsp (remove)
    Salt, 1 tsp (remove)
    Cinnamon, ground, 2 tsp (remove)
    Brown Sugar, .5 cup, packed (remove)
    Blueberries, fresh, 1.5 cup (remove)

Directions

Soak the oats in milk for about one hour. (Unless you like them crunchy! I do sometimes.)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Spray muffin pan with cooking spray.
Combine the oat mixture with the applesauce and egg whites, and mix until combined.
In a separate bowl measure and mix the dry ingredients together.
Add wet ingredients to dry and mix until just combined. Gently add blueberries. (If I am feeling decadent, I replace the blueberries with 1/4 cup chopped chocolate chips) Do not over mix the batter or the muffins will be tough. Spoon muffin mixture into muffin pan.

Bake for 15 - 20 minutes or until done.
Remove from pan, cool and enjoy.
These can be frozen and reheated in the microwave for a quick breakfast. (it's about 60 seconds in my microwave.)

The mashed bananas, canned pumpkin, shredded zuchini or carrots can replace the applesauce for a different flavor. Or try replacing part of the milk with orange juice.
