IntroductionThese muffins are a great 100 calorie snack, especially when you have to fly out of the door in the morning and delay breakfast. These healthy muffins are sweetened by fresh fruit and use apple sauce instead of oil. My kids eat them toasted with honey.

2 Cups Oats
1 1/2 Cups Plain Yogurt (low fat is best)
1/2 Cup Cottage Cheese (low fat is best)
1/4 Cup Almonds sliced or ground
1/2 Cup Dried Cranberries or raisins (Optional)
1/4 Cup Wheat bran
3 Eggs beaten
1 Cup Applesauce, unsweetened
1 Cup Mashed Banana
1 1/2 Cup Blueberries
3/4 Cup Wholegrain Flour
3/4 Cup Plain Flour
1/2 tsp Baking Soda
1/2 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 tsp Salt
1 tbsp Cinnamon
If you've a sweet tooth add 1/4 Cup of Sugar or Splenda to the batter before adding the dry ingredients but be aware it adds calories to each muffin. Its much better to add more blueberries or dried cranberries if you want added sweetness.
You can add any dried fruit or nuts to taste but watch out for the extra calories!
My friend uses 1 Cup of White & 1 Cup of Wholemeal flour and increases the amount of baking soda. She feels that it makes the muffins a bit lighter.
In a large mixing bowl, combine yogurt, cottage cheese, almonds, dried cranberries, oats, and wheat bran. Leave for 1/2 hour.
Gently fold eggs, banana, apple sauce, and blueberries into the yogurt/oats mixture.
In a separate bowl mix together the remaining dry ingredients: Wholegrain flour, Plain Flour, Baking Soda, Baking Powder, Salt, and Cinnamon.
Stir dry ingredients into the the wet mixture. Batter will be lumpy.
Bake at 180C or 350F for 15-20 or until a yummy golden brown.
Serving Size: Makes 24 small muffins or 2 small loaves.
