Apple Oatmeal Muffins

For this week's Foodie Friends Friday, I'm linking up this amazing recipe for On-the-Go Oatmeal Cups.  I am so glad that I found this recipe over at With Style and Grace because it was super easy, healthy, and totally adaptable! I made it with apples and raisins, but I can definitely see other combos in my future (peanut butter/banana, nutella, blueberry, strawberry...the options are truly endless!).  I hope that you enjoy this recipe and have a happy Friday!

Mini On-The-Go Apple Oatmeal Cups
(makes 24 mini cups plus 5 large cups or 36 mini cups)

2 cups rolled oats
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp cloves
1 1/2 cups plain almond milk
1/2 cup egg whites
1/4 cup plain applesauce
1 apple, peeled and chopped (I used Granny Smith)
1/4 cup raisins

1. Preheat oven to 350 and grease a mini muffin pan.
2.  Beat the egg whites, almond milk, and applesauce together in a large bowl.
3.  In another bowl, whisk the oats, brown sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves together.  Pour this mixture into the almond milk mixture and mix to combine.
4.  Pour the batter into the muffin pan, filling each well about 3/4 full-full.  Bake for about 30-35 minutes.  The mini cups will be done closer to 30 and the large ones may take a bit longer.

Enjoy :)
