A whole grain, low-sugar muffin you can enjoy for breakfast or snack and feel good about feeding the kids. Made with oat flour, apple sauce and dried cherries.
Weekends are for baking – yes even in the summer! I try not to use my oven as much during the warmer months but I love roasted veggies and healthy baked goods too much to stay away.
Everyone needs a good muffin in their life made with ingredients that are always on hand.
For me that is eggs and rolled oats so these are made with just that! I threw some dried cherries into the mix for a seasonal touch and these were ready to eat.
These are made with whole grain oats so they are rich in fiber for staying power. Apple sauce and a little bit of maple syrup were my sweeteners of choice. Just enough to sweeten them without being overpowering.
That’s what makes these a great breakfast or on-the-go snack option.
