Grandkid Approved Whole Grain Applesauce Cinnamon Muffins...

When the three oldest grands spent Sunday night with us, 
we knew they'd expect one of Papa's home cooked breakfasts on Memorial Day.
He made eggs, bacon and sausage, (only grandson doesn't like bacon), 
and it was requested that I make some muffins.

My first thought was blueberry muffins, but I was out of blueberries.
So, necessity being the mother of invention, I whipped these up using what I had on hand.
They were a big hit, and healthy too!

Whole Grain Applesauce Cinnamon Muffins

Whisk together dry ingredients:
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup oat bran
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
Whisk together and then add the wet ingredients, being careful to not over mix:
2 eggs and 1 egg white lightly beaten
1 Tablespoon vegetable oil
1/2 cup Greek yogurt (I used non fat)
1/2 cup milk (I used skim milk)
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce

Fill greased muffin tins 3/4 full 
Bake in preheated 375 degree oven for  approximately 20 minutes

Add some raisins and chopped walnuts to the batter if you wish.

    1. They're yummy for being relatively healthy, and easy to make!

  3. They look wonderful and I am all for whole wheat.

  4. Wish I could figure out how to make them gluten-free. They look delish! I have Celiac.

    1. I'm sure you could sub the whole wheat flour for a gluten free type. Is oat bran GF?

  5. Those look delicious! I wish I had one or two right now :)

  6. I will try these with my grands, Elizabeth. They sound delectable. :) Thank you!

    1. My granddaughter helped me make them! They're quick and easy.
