Outrageous Applesauce Oatmeal Muffins by Heather Perkins

These muffins are very filling, they are 3 weight watchers points per muffin. They are easy to make and hard to resist. (I am a big muffin person so these are great!)

1 1/2 cups oats, not the minute kind
1 1/4 cup flour
3/4 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. baking powder
3/4 tsp. baking soda
1 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
3 Tbsp. vegetable oil
1 egg
1 tsp. salt

1/2 cup oats
2 Tbsp. brown sugar
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
2 Tbsp. margarine, melted.

Heat over to 400. You can make these in baking cups or not, if not, make sure to spray your pan well with Pam spray so that they won't stick. Combine oats, flour, cinnamon, baking powder, and baking soda. Add applesauce, milk, brown sugar, oil, and egg. Mix until the ingredients are moistened. Fill muffin cups almost completely full, maybe 3/4. Combine the remaining topping ingredients. Sprinkle evenly over the batter, I used my hands to do this so that it would be even.

Bake 15-17 minutes or until golden brown. In my oven, because it cooks hot, I only cooked them for 12 minutes and they were completely done. Do not overcook these.

Makes about 15 muffins....The recipe said 12, but I made 15.

Enjoy these for breakfast, or for a fun snack.

I had unexpected guests this morning, and made this in a pinch. I added walnuts and raisins, and they were amazing!! Super easy to make, little baking time, and very healthy.(i used multi grain oatmeal)

thanks for the recipe, it's going to make a great breakfast for my picky eaters- a husband and a 1 1/2 year old!! :P
