These fantastic muffins only have about 150 calories and 5 grams of fat each. Not bad, considering most muffins have at least 300 calories a piece. They don’t have any butter or oil, and are so tasty you will want two of them, and that is ok! The recipe yields about 15 muffins.

You will need:
-1 1/2 cup flour
-1 cup of quick oats
-1/4 cup sugar
-1/2 cup brown sugar
-2 tsp. baking powder
-1 tsp. baking soda
-1/2 tsp. cinnamon
-1/2 tsp. salt
-1 egg, beaten
-3/4 cup skim milk
-1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce
-1/2 tsp. vanilla
-1 tsp. maple extract
-1 cup mashed bananas (about 3)
-3 tbsp. ground flax (optional, but it doesn’t affect the flavor and is really great for you!)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees farenheit. Mix all ingredients together by combining wet ingredients and dry ingredients separately, then slowly incorporate the two together until you have a smooth batter. Spray muffin pans with non-stick spray, and insert muffin cups. Fill each cup about 3/4 of the way, and bake for 18-20 minutes on the center rack. We have found that 18 minutes is best, but it really depends on your oven.

If you would like, you can add one of these to your muffins:
-raisins, 1/4 cup
-chocolate chips, 1/4 cup
-blueberries, 1/4 cup
-pecans, 1/2 cup

Enjoy! I know we are!
