Oat Applesauce Muffins

These are tasty, hearty, healthy muffins that do well with add-ins like dried fruit, nuts and seeds.  They freeze beautifully if well-wrapped.

1 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
1 ¼ cups rolled oats
¼ cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1 T. baking powder
¼ t. baking soda
¼ t. salt
1 t. ground cinnamon
¼ t. ground cloves
1/8 t. freshly grated nutmeg
1 egg
¾ cup milk
3 T. vegetable oil
1 cup applesauce

Preheat the oven to 425 F.

In a medium-size bowl, combine the flour, oats, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg. Mix well.

In a large bowl, combine the egg milk, oil, and applesauce.

Stir in the dry ingredients, and mix well. Spoon the batter into the greased (or lined) muffin cups so they are two-thirds full.

Bake until firm and golden, 18 to 20 minutes.

Makes 12 muffins.
