I modified this recipe from one that I found online to suit my family’s tastes. You can add nuts, raisins, or fruit to this if you like, but these muffins are very moist without anything added. They are delicious with homemade jams on top or plain.
2 cups toasted whole grain oat cereal, crushed about 1 cup crushed, (like Cheerios)
The food processor makes fast work of the cereal or put cereal in a zip top bag and crush with rolling pin.
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
3/4 cup flour
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 cup ground flaxseed
1 cup applesauce
1/3 cup skim milk (I use light soymilk)
3 tbsp. vegetable oil
1 egg or (one egg white if you are watching your cholesterol)
Heat oven to 400 degrees. Grease bottom of muffin pan or use papers. Mix dry ingredients in medium bowl. Stir in remaining ingredients just until just moistened. (do not over mix). Bake until golden brown, 18 to 22 minutes. Yields 12 muffins.
