Oatmeal muffins

Apples are in season and what a great time to make and enjoy warm healthy applesauce oat muffins. Normally, muffins are not very healthy, however, these muffins are nutrient-dense. Oil and an extra egg have been replaced with applesauce and wheat flour is used instead of white flour. The whole grain oats add fiber and protein.

These muffins can last for up to three months in the freezer. Place cooled muffins in a sealable freezer bag and freeze. To thaw, microwave frozen muffin for 20 seconds or thaw at room temperature.
