Number of Servings: 12


    * Nonstick cooking spray

    * 2/3 cup old-fashioned oats
    * 1/4 cup firmly packed light/dark brown sugar
    * 1 tsp cinnamon
    * 2 tbsp margarine spread, melted

    * 1.5 cups all-purpose flour
    * 1 cup old-fashioned oats
    * 1 tsp baking powder
    * 1/2 tsp baking soda
    * 1/2 tsp cinnamon
    * 1.5 cup unsweetened applesauce
    * 1/2 cup skim milk
    * 1/2 cup butternut squash puree
    * 1/2 cup firmly packed light/dark brown sugar
    * 1/4 cup egg substitute


* Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Coat a 12-cup muffin tin with cooking spray or line with paper baking cups.
* To make the topping, stir together the oats, sugar, and cinnamon in a bowl. Stir in the margarine.
* To make the batter, combine the flour, oats, baking soda, baking powder, and cinnamon in a large mixing bowl or zipper-lock bag and stir or shake to mix. In a second bowl, mix the applesauce with the milk, vegetable puree, sugar, and egg with a wooden spoon. Add the flour mixture slowly, stirring until just moistened. Do not overmix - the batter is supposed to be lumpy.
* Divide the batter evenly among the muffin cups and sprinkle with the streusel topping. Bake until the topping is lightly browned and a toothpick comes out clean when inserted into the center of the muffins, 18 to 20 minutes. Turn the muffins out onto a rack and serve warm or cold.

    My non-muffin eating 3 year old LOVED these when she ate one at a playgroup. So I made them tonight and tried one-YUM! The streusel on top really makes them delish and the fact that they get my 3 year old (and me-lol) to eat veggies and fruit for dessert-GREAT! - 3/5/11
