Healthy Applesauce Oat Breakfast Muffins Recipe

My kids love it when I make breakfast. I used to make it all the time, but somehow over the years I've become a bit lazy. We have cereal most mornings because I don't want to wake up any earlier than necessary. I've recently realized something profound - muffins can be made ahead!  I know, it's a bit obvious. But it really hadn't occurred to me before. Now I can still sleep late(r) and my kids can have a home cooked breakfast too.

These muffins are full of wholesome oats and applesauce, plus they are low in fat and sugars. They are topped with a oat and cinnamon crumble topping that's just sweet enough to satisfy my sweet tooth, but not so sweet that I feel like I'm eating dessert for breakfast. I cannot say enough good things about these muffins. My kids who snub their nose at anything that's the least bit "healthy" gobble them up and ask for more.

Time for a little confession: I didn't even make these muffins this time, I assigned my oldest to do it. She's a great cook and these muffins were delicious.


Not only do they taste good for breakfast, but I sometimes put them in my kids lunchboxes. Lunches don't get much easier than that!
