Oat Bran Applesauce Muffins

Breakfast at 9 PM.  Just wanted something comfortable, tasty, and hot. Tired of cereal (did I mention it was 9PM?) and didn’t want a bunch of sugar. So these awesome muffins are packed with fiber and only ½ cup of sugar.  The raisins round out the flavor.  I can only imagine what a handfull of walnuts might do to this already great recipe.

Ingredients ~

  • ½ cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1 ½ cups Hodgson Mill Oat Bran Hot Cereal
  • 1 ½ cups white or whole wheat flour
  • 1 ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs (or 4 egg whites)
  • ¾ cup raisins
  • 1 cup applesauce, chilled
  • 4 Tablespoons vegetable oil

Method ~

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line 12 muffin cups with paper liners or grease muffin cups. Blend together dry ingredients. Add eggs, chilled applesauce and vegetable oil. Mix until well-blended. Spoon batter into muffin cups. Let stand 10 minutes. Bake 15 minutes or until golden brown.

Makes 12 muffins
