Oatmeal Muffins


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. The look even more delicious because the tops look like cookies 🙂
