Fiance always likes to have something sweet after a meal, and now he’s gotten me in the habit, too. I was looking for something that wasn’t too ungodly unhealthy when I came across Healthy Maple Oat Muffins from my new favorite Web site,  (That site has so many good — and healthy — ideas!)


  • 1 and 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 and 1/2 cups old-fashioned oats
  • 1/4 cup applesauce
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 and 1/2 cups low-fat milk
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • Preheat the oven to 375. The original recipe says to sift together flours, baking soda and salt and add the oats, but I honestly just mixed them together. Then you combine the sugar, canola oil and applesauce. Combine the wet ingredients and the dry ingredients and add the milk and maple syrup. Combine until just mixed.

    I decide to make a mix of mini and regular size muffins. I didn’t really pay attention the baking times, but it was probably around 20 minutes.

    These are delicious! They remind fiance and me of something, but we can’t quite figure it out. I’m thinking snickerdoodle cookies, but he says that’s not quite it. At any rate, they are good, dense and filling.

    Do you always have dessert? What’s your favorite healthy treat?
