I should eat healthy foods more than what I do. My wife asked if I would make some oatmeal muffins, and what she asks for she usually gets. This Low Fat Oatmeal Muffin Recipe is very simple, with very little prep and cooking time. The unsweetened applesauce in the recipe makes them moist and very tasty. Serve them hot with butter or margarine. Enjoy

It is a great year for apples in this part of Upper Michigan. The trees are just loaded. It is wonderful because there are so many different ways of preparing them. Last but not least -when you are tired of cooking them, you can slice, and freeze to make pies over the long winter. I decided to start the season with this Apple Muffin recipe. It is moist and delicious. Your family will love it!
