Berry Muffins

These muffins are light, moist and “highly-substituted.” This basically means less sugar, more fruit, less butter/oil, more applesauce, less refined white flour, more whole grain flour and oats. Perfect to store for an on-the-go breakfast or to bring as healthy treats to events. Enjoy!

 

Yield 12 servings

**Dairy-free and can be Vegan or Vegetarian.

Ingredients:

  • 1 muffin pan, greased or buttered
  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 3/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/3 cup sugar (or other sweetener – honey, agave nectar, stevia, etc)
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 cup applesauce (or vegetable oil)
  • 1 beaten egg (or 1 mashed banana)
  • 1 or 2 cups berries
 Directions:
  1.  Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Soak oats in orange juice and set aside.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix flour, sugar, baking powder, and baking soda. Blend in applesauce (or oil) and egg (or banana).
  4.  Stir in the oat mixture and gently fold in your choice of berry.
  5. Evenly pour mixture into baking tins.
  6. Optional: I mixed together 1/4 tsp cinnamon and 2 tsp sugar with some oats and sprinkled it across the tops of the muffins to give the tops a light *sugary crunch*
  7. Bake for 18-20min (Note: Oven times may vary). Let cool, remove, and enjoy!
