WHOLE WHEAT OATMEAL RAISIN MUFFINS

 

  • Cooking Time: 18 minutes
  • Servings: 12
  • Preparation Time:

Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 cups whole wheat flour, sifted
  • 1 cup quick cooking oats
  • 3/4 cup wheat bran
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1 cup applesauce
  • 1/2 cup fat free Greek yogurt
  • 1 TB vegetable oil
  • 1 TB honey (optional)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 TB or so of raw sugar (optional)
  • Cooking spray

Directions

  • Preheat your oven to 375' F
  • Spray 12 muffin tins with the cooking spray
  • In a large bowl, combine the flour, oats, bran, brown sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda and salt. In a small bowl, combine the applesauce, yogurt, oil, honey, egg and vanilla.
  • Make a well in the dry ingredients. Add the applesauce mixture to the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. You don't want to over stir or you'll end up with a dense muffin. (These aren't like cupcakes which require lots of beating).
  • Spoon the mixture into the prepared muffin tins. Sprinkle the tops of each muffin with the raw sugar.
  • Bake for 18 minutes or until the muffins spring back when touched in the center.
  • Immediately remove from the tins and let cool a tiny bit before eating

Notes

The muffins were moist, light and very flavorful. I did some calculations and found out that each muffin is about 163 cal. They taste like those famous Vanishing Oatmeal Cookies
