“Finally….a delicious oatmeal muffin with no guilt for me!  I love oatmeal anything! Muffins can be pretty high in calories or on the other side of the coin they can be great in protein and low in taste.   But check out the nutritional information for the low numbers in calories, sugar, and Weight Watcher Smart Points of these great oatmeal muffins!  

You can make them plain or use the batter as a base to add any fruit you wish.  There are so many ways people make muffins using all kinds of flours, sugars,  honey, applesauce, and fruit.    I could not find an oatmeal one to my liking and I have tried many recipes.  I don’t like brown sugar in muffins and I wanted the color to be light and the texture to be fluffy, not dense.  This recipe fits the bill and a bonus.. it has a nice, strong oatmeal taste which I love!

To add fruit: lightly coat 3/4 cup of berries or diced fruit of your choice with 1 teaspoon of flour before adding to the batter so the fruit won’t sink to the bottom of the muffins.

These muffins release neatly from the paper liners. Enjoy!’

ingredients

1 egg
1 cup skim milk
1/4 cup oil
1-1/3 cups flour
3/4 cup oatmeal
1/3 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt

3/4 cup berries or diced fruit of your choice (optional)

ingredients

1. Preheat the oven to 400º.
2. Line a standard 12-cup muffin tin with paper liners.
3. In a medium bowl beat together the eggs, milk, and oil. Set aside.
4. In a small bowl, mix together the flour, oatmeal, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Gently stir this into the egg mixture until jsut combined.  To have light, fluffy muffins, do not overmix the batter.
5. If you are adding fruit to the batter, coat the fruit first with 1 tablespoon flour and then gently fold the fruit into the batter so the fruit will not sink to the bottom of the muffins.
6. Spoon the batter into the muffin tins, filling them about 2/3 of the way up.
7. Bake for 8 minutes, then lower the oven temperature to 350º and bake for another 5-8 minutes or until a cake tester inserted in the center comes out clean.
8. Cool the muffins in the tin on a wire rack for 5 minutes, then carefully remove them from the tin and place them on the wire rack to continue cooling.
10. Store the muffins covered on top of the counter. You can also freeze the muffins in freezer bags. To thaw, remove them from the freezer bag and place them on a wire rack.
