So, yes I did promise you that I would leave you with a nutritious and delicious baking recipe this morning. This past weekend Luna and I baked some oatmeal muffins, which were quite simple to make. Both of us usually love baking together but, lately we have been making some changes and moving towards the “healthy sweets.” Not only because we want to stay healthy and fit but, because Sergio (my husband) was recently diagnosed with Pancreatitis and he defiantly has a weakness for sweets. So, we have decided to flip our cooking/baking recipes around the house so that everyone is included and can enjoy them.
Now keep in mind these muffins are not only low in sugar but, high in fiber as well as diabetic friendly. We have enjoyed these best with a side of coffee and hard boiled eggs in the morning and even for an on-the-go snack!
Now I do have to give credit to one of favorite addictive sites (Pinterest) for inspiring me onto newer recipes as well as photography inspirations. Follow me to see what I am pinning!
- 2 large eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 cups applesauce, unsweetened

- 5 cups, Old Fashioned rolled oats
- 1/4 cup flaxseed
- 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
- 3 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 3/4 cups milk
- Optional toppings: walnuts, raisins, chocolate chips or even fresh fruit!
1. Mix the first (5) ingredients together in a bowl.
2. Next, add in and mix in the next (5) dry ingredients with the wet ingredients.
3. Pour in milk and make sure to mix well together until its all blended in.
4. Right now would be a good time to Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
5. Spray (2) 6 capacity muffin tins or (2) 12 capacity cupcake baking tins and spray with cooking spray.
6. If toppings are an option for you, now is the time to add them on top of your muffins.

Believe me… even your little picky eaters will enjoy making and eating these!
