1 cup peeled and chopped apples (Fuji or Gala my favorite!)
1/2 cup oatmeal or oat flour
1/2 scoop vanilla protein powder
1/4 c. water
2 tbsp. sugar-free pancake syrup
2 tbsp. egg whites
2 tbsp. no calorie sugar substitute
2 tbsp. no suggar added apple sauce
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
In a medium bowl, combine all of the dry ingredients for muffins (oats, sweetner, baking powder, and cinnamon). Mix well.
In a large mixing bowl, combine all of the wet ingredients for muffins (water, syrup, egg whites, apple sauce, and vanilla extract). Using a whisk, mix until thoroughly blended. Add dry ingredients to the large bowl with the wet ingredients. Mix until completely blended, and then fold in the apples.
Line four cups of a muffin pan with baking cups and/or spray with nonstick spray. Evenly distribute batter among the four cups.
Bake in the oven for 18 – 20 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean. Cool slightly before eating.
