1 tablespoon baking powder

3/4 teaspoon salt

2/3 cup milk, skim or low-fat (1%)

1/3 cup applesauce

1 egg, beaten

1/4 cup honey

1/2 cup raisins 

1/2 cup chopped nuts

vegetable oil cooking spray

*Special Note:
Do not give honey to children under 12 months of age - they are at risk of infant botulism, which is a rare but serious form of food poisoning.

  2. Combine oats, flour, brown sugar, baking powder, and salt in a large mixing bowl.
  3. Add milk, applesauce, egg, and honey to the bowl and mix until moistened.

  • To lower the fat, substitute an equal amount of applesauce for the oil whenever you bake muffins.
