Last night before she went to bed Princess Belle threw a paper airplane at me. Inside the paper airplane was a request to wake her up in the morning so that she could help make breakfast.  So, when I got up this morning, I decided that Princess Belle and I would make some muffins for breakfast.  They were really popular with all the kids and so I thought I would share the recipe here:

I doubled the recipe and they still disappeared in a flash!

Applesauce-Oat Muffins

3 cups instant oatmeal
2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1-1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 egg white  
2 cups applesauce
1 cup milk

1/2 cup instant oatmeal
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 tablespoon and 2-1/4
teaspoons ground cinnamon
2 tablespoons melted butter


1.     Preheat an oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease 12 muffin cups, or line with paper muffin liners. Whisk together 1 1/2 cups oatmeal, the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and 1/8 teaspoon of cinnamon in a mixing bowl; set aside.

2.     Whisk 1/2 cup brown sugar, egg white, applesauce, and milk together in a mixing bowl until smooth. Stir in the flour mixture until evenly moistened; it's ok if small, dry lumps remain. Pour the batter into the prepared muffin tin. Stir the 1/4 cup oatmeal, 1/4 cup brown sugar, 1 tablespoon cinnamon, and the melted butter in a small bowl; sprinkle this mixture over the muffins.

3.     Bake in the preheated oven until golden and the tops spring back when lightly pressed, about 20 minutes. Cool at least 10 minutes before serving.
