Apples and Oats Muffins

How's that for a breakfast?  Delicious and healthy- bonus.

Had to post this recipe before I forgot what I did.  Loved this.  My youngest daughter proclaimed, I could eat this every day for the rest of my life.  Nice comment but that might get a little boring after a while.  But they are good enough to eat a lot.

Works out to be 165 calories.  Not bad.  Combined with some egg whites and you have a nice balance of protein and carbs.

I will say that this muffin really is amped up by good coconut oil.  The kind that tastes like coconut.  If you decide to swap the oil out for something else, you will not have the same results.  If your oil that you choose does not have any flavor I would suggest some almond extract for a little added flavor.

half of a banana, mashed
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 cups oats
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup applesauce, unsweetened
1/2 cup coconut oil- first press
2 tablespoons sour cream
1 large egg plus an egg white
2 teaspoons vanilla

Preheat oven to 350F.  Line a muffin tin with paper liners.  This recipe will make about 16 regular muffins.

Mix dry ingredients together in a small bowl:  oats, flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt.  In a large bowl mix together applesauce, banana, sour cream, egg, vanilla and brown sugar.  In a microwave safe bowl, melt coconut oil.  Not too much.  You don't want it piping hot, just melted.

Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and stir.  Add in coconut oil.  Spoon into muffin tins.  Bake for 15 to 20 minutes.
