Apple Oat & Pecan Morning Muffins

Sunday, April 28, 2013

From our skinny table to yours...

It's no surprise that we love cooking in the muffin tin.  Who has time to make a gourmet breakfast in the morning?  We don't and love the convenience of the grab n' go style muffin!  Today we are mixing things up and creating a healthy breakfast muffin in the form of apple pie!  Can you beat this?

We start off by chopping up juicy golden delicious apples.  We then saute up the apples with cinnamon, just a teaspoon of brown sugar and applesauce.  Applesauce is one of our favorite skinny substitutions when it comes to baking!  You can eliminate most, if not ALL, of the sugar you need with this little trick ;)  

To make these muffins you will simply pour the wet ingredients consisting of Apple Cinnamon Greek yogurt, skim milk, egg white, and vanilla extract over your dry ingredients.  The dry ingredients consist of the apples, pecans for a boost of energy, baking powder, brown sugar and cinnamon.  These muffins are super simple to make and packed with nutrition!  

These healthy and delicious muffins come in at only 96 calories a pop!  It's so important to start your day off with the right kind of energy to motivate you to continue on throughout the day :)  

YUM!  Join us today as we prep our healthy breakfast out for the week!

Happy Sunday!
