These applesauce oatmeal muffins are the perfect breakfast muffins and have no refined sugar, so you can feel better about feeding them to your little ones.
It looks like I’m on an every other week posting schedule for my muffin series. Such is life I suppose.
Today’s muffin is semi-healthy, with no refined white sugar and using whole wheat flour. These applesauce oatmeal muffins aren’t too sweet and really are a great breakfast muffin. They are a little drier than my other muffins, and I think that helps them keep really well in an air tight container.
My daughter isn’t a big oatmeal fan. Have I told you that yet? Well she isn’t. Everytime I use oats in a recipe, she balks and tells me she’s not going to like it.
Then she forgets I used oats, eats the baked good and raves about it. Well, most of the time. And that was the case with this applesauce oatmeal muffin. She even asked for a second! I felt like giving myself a pat on the back after that. And maybe I did. Maybe….
- 1 1/2 cups oats
- 1 1/4 cups whole wheat flour

- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 3/4 heaping cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup applesauce (natural)

- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 egg white
- 1 tablespoon melted butter
- 1/4 cup oats
- 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

- Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line muffin tin with cupcake liners and lightly spray.
- In a large bowl, combine oats, flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
- In a medium bowl beat applesauce, milk, oil, vanilla and egg white until thoroughly combined.
- Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix until the dry ingredients are just coated.
- Fill muffin liners 3/4 full.
- For the topping, combine all ingredients into small bowl and sprinkle over each muffin.

I hope you enjoy these as much as we have.
