I have been staying away from oatmeal too. But this looks so good, I will need to try it!

             I had forgotten how much I like these. Since I made this video, I've decided to have them more often. Oatmeal is something my body tolerates well, and for me, these are worth a carb-trade or even a few extra net carbs.

I made these muffins this morning. I did not have applesauce, so I had a dilemma, use what I had or wait. I wanted to try them, so I used 1 tbs pumpkin butter (Trader Joe's) (to keep calorie counts approximately the same 1 opted or 1 tbs of sauce instead of 2. I worried it might not work being too dry.) As the pumkin was spiced and sweet, I did not use spices, sweetner. What a delicious treat. A very nice substitute for the box muffins the family was eating for over 60% savings in calories, carbs, and good food. I like oats and I wille at them in small quatities. I also felt like I was having a bread. Later, I bought some apple sauce and will try the recipe properly. When the muffin was baking it puffed up. I thought it would go over the sides but it did not. It baked like a souffle. I bought a nice 1 serving baking dish for these recipes. Too much fun.

             Karen, the pumpkin variation sounds delicious. This simple and easy recipe is one of my favorite breakfast taste treats.

Sorry about the typos. DS bought me some applesauce today when he was out. Watching this again with DH, I realized that I can use the applesauce elsewhere. One use that comes to mind is with my Fage yogurt.

             Karen, I usually keep a jar of unsweetened applesauce in my refrigerator most of the time. It lasts quite a while, and my husband likes applesauce as a side with grilled cheese sandwiches..something I make for him, but seldom have myself. He prefers sweetened applesauce, but I stopped buying it, just sprinkle a package of Splenda in his bowl before I serve it to him. Applesauce is a common substitute for fat in many of my homemade low-fat baking recipes, and, of course, a 1/4 or 1/2 cup of simple applesauce can be a nice side treat or desert.

Bought some applesauce and will make these as a side for the split pea & ham soup for supper. Over half the cal/carbs of the muffins or cornbread the family usually has with soup. I look forward to trying the applesause in a variety of ways.

             Hi Karen, These have always been a small meal for me as they are rather filling. If I were having extra food with them, it would probably be 1/2 cup of 0% Fage yogurt. If I were having bread with soup, I would not want to have a sweet tasting bread like this one. Perhaps you'll skip the splenda and use different spices? Let me know how it goes.

I agree about skipping the splenda it was a bit too sweet with ham & split pea soup. Next time I make them and eat them as a side to a soup, I will rely on the sweetness from the applesauce to carry it. It must be noted: I ate every bit happily:-)

             Yes, Karen, these ARE delicious.

Are you saying the whole muffin is 118 calories, or each of the 6 pieces? Thanks.

             Zlarkin, The entire muffin is 118 calories. Each of the 6 pieces would be 1/6 of that amount. I hope you like them. This is still a favorites that I eat frequently.
