Got it from the Quaker Oatmeal website and wanted to try it. It is described as a kid favorite, low sodium, lower fat, and less than 30 minutes.

These muffins are healthy, low fat, low sugar and high fibre when made with wholemeal flour. They are definitely worth spending your time to make. As a mum they are a great snack to put my daughter's lunch box for school.
