Your breakfast will be delicious tomorrow (or later today), I promise. You just have to make these muffins.
This recipe is a staple in my home and my children love it. I found this recipe for Applesauce Oatmeal Muffins on Spark People when I was diligently logging my calories (which I shall begin doing again as soon as possible, like right now, so as to avert potential holiday tragedy). Because they are so few calories, my calorie-tracker allowed me to have TWO of these muffins as part of my breakfast and they were so delicious with my coffee that now I’m going to make them and will probably be making them as you read this because now I am craving them and they are a very healthy craving and that’s the kind of craving I don’t have to feel bad about. And when I joined Weight Watchers, they were perfect on that plan too.
Sidenote: By the way, I shall claim “Victory!” in the world of healthfulness because my husband took the kids to a certain famous “Hamburger Place” the other day and my three-year-old wouldn’t eat the cheeseburger because he claimed it “wasn’t healthy”. Yes!
So now — the recipe.
