Baked Oatmeal Muffins
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups unsweetened applesauce
1 cup pumpkin (I use half a can)
3/4 cup brown sugar
5 cups oats
1 teaspoon salt
3 teaspoons baking powder
1 tablespoon cinnamon
2 3/4 cups milk
1/2 cup chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix eggs, vanilla, applesauce, pumpkin, and brown sugar. Add oats, salt, baking powder, and cinnamon and mix well. Pour in milk and add chocolate chips. Stir to combine.
Spray muffin pans with non-stick spray and scoop mixture into cups. I fill mine pretty full because these muffins don't rise. I also press a couple of chocolate chips onto the top of each muffin.
Bake 30 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool and enjoy or freeze. This recipe makes 24 muffins.
These muffins taste great warm, and they freeze very well. I usually pull out a few from the freezer and let them thaw overnight. They taste fresh and delicious each morning!
I hope you are all having a good week! Let me know if you try the baked oatmeal!
