Last week, I had the pleasure of having a half day off from work due to the snow. Usually, when these rare opportunities present themselves, I spend the majority of the day cooking or baking things that make me feel happy when it is so miserable outside. Last year during the snowstorm, I made delicious low-cal tortellini soup and turkey chili. This year I decided I really wanted to try to make oatmeal “cupcakes” or small oatmeal muffins. I used a modified version of this recipe, that was naturally discovered after browsing Pinterest. These were delicious! Plus, I did my own break down of ingredients to get a calorie count and they are only 180 cals each! Can they BE any more amazing?! Here is what I did with the recipe modifications.
1 egg white
1/4 cup (Slightly less than) canola oil
1 cup brown sugar
1 & 3/8 cups of 2% Milk
1/2 cup (1 single serving cup) apple cinnamon apple sauce
2 tspn vanilla
1 & 1/4 tspn cinnamon
3 cups of quick oats
2 tspn of baking powder
Then I followed the instructions from the link and they came out fabulous!
Note: For toppings, I used pomegranate craisins and walnuts, chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, then a combo of chocolate and peanut butter chips.
