This recipe was originally posted by a Zaar member who is no longer active. When she left, this recipe went "up for adoption." Since I was a huge fan of Zenith and her recipes, I of COURSE leapt at the chance to adopt one of her wonderful healthy recipes. These have no added fat and will make a satisfying breakfast snack. Enjoy!
- 1 cup rolled oats (old fashioned oatmeal)
- 1 cup skim milk

- Variations: To make Oatmeal Raisin Muffins, Oatmeal Apple Muffins, or Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Muffins, add raisins/chopped apples/chocolate chips to the batter.
Nice, virtuous breakfast food! I did add some nutmeg and cinnamon, and a few raisins, which I soaked with the oatmeal in advance. I believe they come out to 2.5 WWpoints, 2 if you make them into 12 muffins, as I put mine in a square pan, and cut into 9. I chose this recipe for my husband, who told me he wanted to eat something with oatmeal, and he likes it, he did say he wanted additional stuff in it, like the raisins, which I agree with. And it is so good for you, all of that whole wheat flour and oatmeal, why not!
These were fantastic! I used all whole wheat pastry flour, demerara sugar, 3 cups chopped apple, 2 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 tsp nutmeg and 1/2 tsp vanilla. My family raved about these muffins, saying they tasted like apple pie! Thanks for the great recipe, I'll definitely be making these again.
These turned out really good! Very nice texture and just the right sweetness. At the last minute, I realized that I didn't have any applesauce so took a gamble and used light sour cream instead. No problems - they were still moist and delicious! I also sprinkled some cinnamon/sugar on top before baking. Thanks for posting!
