Here's the skinny on how to make great-tasting muffins packed with whole grain and fruity goodness.

Ingredients

3/4
cup sweetened applesauce
1/3
cup fat-free (skim) milk
2
tablespoons vegetable oil
1
egg or 1/4 cup fat-free egg product
3
cups Oatmeal Crisp® Almond cereal, slightly crushed
1 1/4
cups Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
1/2
cup packed brown sugar
1
teaspoon ground cinnamon
1
teaspoon baking powder
3/4
teaspoon baking soda
1/2
cup sweetened dried cranberries
1/2
to 1 teaspoon coarse sugar or granulated sugar

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 400°F. Place paper baking cup in each of 12 regular-size muffin cups; spray bottoms with cooking spray.
  • 2 In large bowl, mix applesauce, milk, oil and egg until blended. Stir in remaining ingredients except coarse sugar just until moistened. Divide batter evenly among muffin cups. Sprinkle with coarse sugar.
  • 3 Bake 18 to 22 minutes or until golden brown.

Expert Tips

Low-fat muffins sometimes stick to paper liners. A quick spray with cooking spray helps solve that problem, and the muffins release easily.

Eating at least 3 servings of whole grains daily may help reduce blood cholesterol. Look for the word "whole" to be sure you get the whole grain.
