These muffin tops I can handle!

If you have to have a muffin top, these applesauce muffins are the best kind to have! (NOT the kind pictured above!!!) This recipe is adapted from one of Mrs. Seinfeld's in Deceptively Delicious. Even hers need some tweaking in my book! They are topped with a delicious streusel topping that has just a touch of butter.

Applesauce Muffins
2/3 cup old fashioned oats
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
2 TBSP butter, melted

1 1/2 cups flour
1 cup old fashioned oats
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 cup ground flaxseed
2 TBSP chia seeds
1 1/4 cup applesauce
1/2 cup skim milk
1/2 cup sweet potato puree
1/2 cup Splenda
1 egg white

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Coat a 12-cup muffin tin with cooking spray. To make topping, stir together oats, sugar and cinnamon in a bowl. Stir in butter. To make batter, combine the flour, oats, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, flaxseed and chia seeds. Add applesauce, milk, puree, Splenda and egg white with a wooden spoon. Divide batter evenly among the muffin tins and sprinkle with streusel topping. Bake until the topping is lightly browned, about 18 to 20 minutes. Turn the muffins out onto a rack and serve warm or cool.

The kids enjoyed them with yogurt and walnuts.

I don't know you, you don't know me, but I have a question. What does your shopping list look like? I find that I am at the store all the time to get an ingredient here and there. Do you have a master list?

Rochelle said...

If I don't have the puree, would I just add an additional 1/2 cup of applesauce?

You got it, Rochelle. See? So simple!

Do you just toss out the egg yolks you don't use?

I really shouldn't give myself such fits about something that's probably about 5 cents, but it kills me to throw away 'good food.'

Thanks for writing this blog. I'm getting all inspired!

I actually buy egg whites in a carton. No waste at all (at least on my part.)
