- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
- 1⁄2 cup whole wheat flour
- 1⁄2 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
- 1 cup old fashioned oats
- 2 tablespoons baking powder

- In separate bowl, mix whole wheat flour, all purpose flour, oats, baking powder, baking soda, dried fruit, walnuts and cinnamon together.

These are great! I loved that they didn't contain a lot of sugar ~ the amount of sweetness from the applesauce and maple syrup was just right (although DH thought they could be sweeter). I was able to successfully make these gluten free. Also added 2 T of ground flax seed to the batter. Will definitely make these again. Thanks for posting Kelly! Made for Healthy Choices ABC Tag.

In my opinion...a 5+ star recipe and I think my new favorite! These muffins are full of flavor and very moist! They were great right out of the oven and still great the next day! I did make 2 changes, using 2 whole eggs instead of 2 egg whites and 1 whole egg and I used all whole wheat flour instead of a mix of whole wheat and unbleached.
