E: Applesauce Oatmeal Muffins

Thank you all for your sweet comments on my pregnancy update! You sure know how to make a lady feel good :). I will answer any questions I received in my next update on Sunday.  AND- Happy Birthday to my favorite fanatic!!

Josh’s Mom came into town for the first part of this week to look at a few additional houses. I wanted to make sure there was something delicious and easy to grab for breakfast, so I made this Quaker’s Oats applesauce oatmeal muffins recipe.

The only change I made was to use cinnamon applesauce vs.. plain.

These smelled INCREDIBLE while baking.

The topping adds a nice crunch and extra bit of sweetness to the muffins.

Those muffins look awesome!! I am a huge fan of muffins. When I lived in Canada I was totally addicted to Tim Horton's chocolate chip muffins! Good thing I moved away from that temptation :).

Safe travels this week Erica!

I have made those before, too! They are delicious and very, very easy to make. I love that you'd pretty much have all of the ingredients at home, anyway!

I am a HUGE muffin person. My favorite is probably mini pumpkin muffins with butterscotch chips!!

I absolutely love muffins! I just made some last week. This recipe looks great with the applesauce and oats - I bet they are chewy yet soft :) Muffins make the best snacks!

I am obsessed with muffins. i love sprinkiling wheatgerm ontop when they are almost finished baking. i am going to try your recipe.

Lea @ Healthy Coconut said...

I've been on a muffin kick lately. It's my go to afternoon snack along with a piece of fruit.

I checked out the recipe and I like that it uses egg whites. I like to add a little protein in my bake goods.

Be safe on your travels. I finally recovered from my long drive.
