These muffins are not only delicious, but very low in fat and heart-healthy. The oats and flaxseed meal add fiber and whole grains for a filling and delicious breakfast or snack, while the applesauce takes the place of egg, butter, or cream that you might find in other muffin recipes. You can make this recipe vegan by omitting the egg and using soymilk as a substitute for milk (I use Lactaid milk to make it dairy-free). To make it sugar-free, substituting Splenda for the small amount of sugar is just as good! A pecan half on top of the muffin adds a visually-appetizing touch while adding a slight crunch to a moist and filling muffin!
