RECIPE: Applesauce Oatmeal Muffins

These are pretty yummy and I made my own oat flour*!  It's really easy.  I used quick cooking oats and processed them in my Magic Bullet until super fine and powdery.  Easy as that!  If you don't own a Magic Bullet, then you can probably use a food processor to get them ground up finely.  But, you should really check into the Magic Bullet.  It's my favorite kitchen appliance by far!  (I wish I could be their spokesperson!)

Applesauce Oatmeal Muffins
1 cup Quaker Oats oatmeal
1 cup milk (I used 2%)
1/2 cup applesauce 
2 egg whites
1 Tbsp honey
2/3 cups oat flour*
1/3 cup all purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1/3 cup raisins

Soak the oatmeal in the milk for 1 hour.  

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.  Spray muffin tin with nonstick cooking spray.  Combine soaked oatmeal with applesauce, egg whites and honey.  Stir until well combined.  

 (I almost forgot the honey!)

In a separate bowl, whisk the oat flour, all purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon.  

Toss in the raisins and coat with the flour mixture.  

Carefully pour into the wet ingredients and stir until just combined.  Don't overmix, it will get tough.  Spoon equal amount into 12 muffin cups.  

Bake at 400 degrees F for 20-25 minutes until golden and a toothpick tests done.  Serving size is 1 muffin.
