Ingredient List
For the muffins:
  • 1 1/2 cups quick oats, uncooked
  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup (8 ounces) unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/2 cup low-fat milk
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 large egg, beaten
For the topping:
  • 1/2 cup quick oats, uncooked
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
For the muffins
  • Preheat the oven to 400°F. Line a 12-cup muffin pan with paper liners.

  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the oats, flour, cinnamon, baking powder and baking soda.

  • Add applesauce, milk, brown sugar, oil and egg; mix just until dry ingredients are moist.

  • Divide the batter among the muffin cups, filling them most of the way.

  • In small bowl, combine topping ingredients. Sprinkle evenly over batter.

  • Bake until the muffins are lightly browned and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 20-22 minutes.  Let the muffins cool 5 minutes in the pan, then remove to a rack.
