1 cup rolled oats
1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 banana, mashed
1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce
3/4 cup nondairy milk (plain or vanilla soy work well)
1 large apple, peeled and diced 1/2"
1/4 to 1/2 cup walnuts, chopped
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line or grease muffin pan. Thoroughly mix dry ingredients (oats through sugar) in a large bowl. Mix the mashed banana and applesauce, then whisk in milk.
2. Mix the wet into the dry ingredients and toss in the nuts and apples quickly. The batter should be rising, very fluffy and wet. Scoop it into prepared pan.
3. Bake for about 15 minutes, but try to take it out as soon as they look done (over cooking makes them a little bit harder, but still just as tasty). If you let them cool before you eat one, they’re much easier to get out of the paper lining.
These muffins are pretty dense anyway, but really, really tasty.
