I am always looking for ways to eat muffins. I mean, seriously, who doesn’t like muffins? However, I don’t like all of the fat, sugar and calories that generally come with this morning staple. I love oatmeal, it’s super healthy, but not always the best grab and go solution for those mornings on the go or just for a quick breakfast at home.

In this process of attempting to find new recipes that follow the Mediterranean Diet, I stumbled across baked oatmeal and it seemed like the logical choice to make into muffin form! I tend to look at vegan recipes because they tend to better follow the Mediterranean Diet format. Out of this was born Triple Berry Oatmeal Applesauce Muffins! While this version is more vegetarian that vegan, it can be made vegan, I was just using what I had on hand.

These muffins use applesauce instead of oil to retain their moisture and add a little bit of sweetness. Frozen fruit, cinnamon, vanilla extract also kick up the sweetness without overloading it with calories.

Why Oatmeal Instead of Flour?

There are many health benefits to eating whole grains (like oatmeal!) on a daily basis. While some gains are inherently more expensive than others, oatmeal is always on the lower end of this cost range. Whole grains also fall into the base of the Mediterranean Diet pyramid for daily consumption, making oatmeal a daily win!

According to Quaker Oats:

“Oats are low in fat, and are sodium free, cholesterol free and preservative free. When baking, you may substitute oats for up to one-third the amount of flour called for in the recipe using either Quick or Old Fashioned Oats. Instant Oatmeal is cut too fine, and is not recommended for baking.”

For this recipe, we are sticking with Old Fashioned Oats because they absorb more moisture and are better for baking.

Benefits of Applesauce in Baking

Applesauce, as long as it is sugar free and by sugar free I mean no “alternative” sugars as well, can replace some oils and fats in baking while still retaining moisture. Applesauce is also a good source of dietary fiber and small traces of vitamins that help improve the overall nutritional impact of any baked goods.

  7. When the cost of higher education diminishes, learning is assumed to occur thanks to the effort of the students. Hence, the number of students—who have the financial resources—is assumed to be the key resource needed to expand the overall number of students in terms of learning. This study seeks to actually delineate the effect of a particular type of resource, the financial incentive to attend a course. This study is important because it may identify an economic driver (in the form of an incentive) that http://www.lenty.ru/gobest.html?https://mecedere.weebly.com

    It is a free program, available for Windows 7 and 8 users, but it comes in a Windows 10-specific version.

  9. Use of codon-optimized synthetic Pyrococcus abyssi ferredoxin genes.
    We have used synthetic genes to improve the expression of ferredoxin I genes in Escherichia coli. Ferredoxin I is a small Fe(II) binding protein and is required for the oxidative activity of photosystem I. The amorphous Fe(III)CO(3) in the crystal structure of photosystem I is thought to be coordinated by two endogenous ferredoxin I http://extensoft.com/?p=affr&redirect_url=https://itampyty.weebly.com
