Low-Fat Oatmeal Muffins

My husband the baker is back!! :-) I am so happy, since I seriously suck at baking. And last weekend he made these oatmeal muffins that we gobbled up in days. So he just made a new batch and we are already down 2.

So I am sharing this recipe that he found on It's really easy to modify this recipe according to your taste for add-in's also. For example, I like the muffins plain, but my husband likes them with raisins. We just tried dried cranberries which were tasty, but I still prefer the muffins plain and he likes raisins better.

But you could add apples, chocolate chips, other dried fruits... etc. Anything you like with oatmeal.

And the best part - they are low-fat. Healthy. YUM!

They take about an hour and a half from start to finish, but it is not all active time. And they are worth it.

Here is the recipe: (12 muffins)


1 cup rolled oat (old fashioned oatmeal)
1 cup skim milk
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup brown sugar , packed
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
2 egg whites
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt


Soak oats in milk for 1 hour. (We put it back in the fridge while it is soaking).

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl.

Spoon into a muffin pan that has been lightly greased or sprayed with nonstick spray. (We use muffin/cupcake cups)

Bake at 400 F for 20-25 minutes.

Variations: To make Oatmeal Raisin Muffins, Oatmeal Apple Muffins, or Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Muffins, add raisins/chopped apples/chocolate chips to the batter.

Enjoy! We like these as part of breakfast or a mid-morning snack! Yum!!
