Applesauce Oatmeal Muffins

Today I cleaned out the fridge and freezer and found a number of storage apples that are no longer good for eating. I cored them and cooked them with the skins on in the microwave and then pureed them in the Vitamix to make applesauce. I don't sweeten applesauce, especially when I cook the fruit without water. The applesauce contains the fiber and pectin found in the skin and the recipe is made with large flake oats and whole wheat flour. This recipe makes enough for 16-18 large muffins.

2 cups whole wheat flour
1-1/2 cups rolled oats
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
6 tsp baking powder
2 eggs
1/2 cup oil
2/3 cup milk
1-1/3 cups applesauce

Mix dry ingredients. Stir in wet ingredients and mix until just moistened.
Bake at 375 F for 15-20 minutes.

Dried fruit or nuts can be added to the batter if desired.

Hello! I didn't know this was you! I was looking at your sidebar for birding blogs - I need more! I've had this blog (come home for supper) in my blog list for a long while. I think I might try some of these this weekend. My aunt is here and I am needing something to bake to send home to grandma. I like the refried beans too and the pork and more!
