Continuing on with my summer love affair with blueberries….here is another recipe I tried this week. These muffins turned out so delicious and moist, this recipe is a keeper!
I found this recipe on my favorite food blog, www.skinnytaste.com and was thrilled that they were not only healthy but also pretty low in calories as far as baked goods go. 🙂
Blueberry Oatmeal Muffins
1 1/2 cups quick cooking oats
1 cup unsweetened almond milk
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
2 tbsp honey
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
2 egg whites
1 tbsp vegetable oil
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup fresh blueberries
Preheat oven to 400°. Line a muffin tin with liners and lightly spray with oil.
Place oats in a food processor or chopper and pulse a few times. Soak oats in milk for about 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a medium bowl combine brown sugar, agave, apple sauce, vanilla, egg whites, oil and mix well.
In a third bowl combine whole wheat flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda and whisk to combine.
Combine oats and milk with sugar, applesauce mixture and mix well. Slowly add in the dry ingredients and mix until just incorporated. Fold in blueberries.
Spoon into the muffin tin and bake for 22-24 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean from the center of a muffin.
