- 1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
- 1 cup unsweetened applesauce
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1 large egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 4 tablespoon butter or coconut oil , melted
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 3/4 cup whole wheat flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/2 cup dried cranberries or raisins
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line a 12-cup muffin tin with liners or grease with non-stick cooking spray. Set aside.
In a medium bowl, stir together the oats, applesauce, milk, egg, vanilla, butter and sugar.
In a large bowl, mix the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, salt and cranberries or raisins.
- Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and pour in the applesauce mixture. Stir just until combined (don't overmix!)

Don't over-bake or the muffins will be dry. Remove them to a cooling rack. Cool completely before freezing in a ziplock freezer bag.
