Applesauce Oat Muffins

After seeing Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins on a Muffin Tin Monday blog entry, I decided I was going to make those today. Slight problem though. No chocolate chips in the house. So, I looked around at what I did have. Since both kiddos refused to eat their strawberry applesauce for lunch, I had 2 open cups to deal with. I also have a lot of oatmeal right now due to finding a very good deal on it (free!). After looking up a couple of different recipes, I put together something acceptable.

Applesauce Oat Muffins

1 1/2 C oatmeal
1 1/2 C all purpose flour
1/2 C brown sugar
1 tsp. baking powder
3/4 tsp baking soda
1 C applesauce
1 egg
1/4 C oil
1/2 C milk

Mix dry ingredients together. In separate bowl, mix wet ingredients together. Add dry mixture to wet, mix until combined. Fill greased muffin tins 2/3 full. Bake at 350°F for 20 minutes. Cool on a wire rack. Serve warm.

Notes: 1) I used strawberry applesauce for mine but if you wanted to use plain applesauce, you could add 1/2 tsp cinnamon. 2) I used silicone muffin tins for mine and I did not grease them. This wasn't a big deal for the smooth miffin tin but muffins in the ruffed heart tin stuck a bit. This may not have been a big deal if I had let them cool a little longer. 3) These are slightly sweet and would go well with a yogurt, some fresh fruit or just a coffee.
