Fat Meets Fiber = Fabulous Muffins

There may be a small amount of fat in these muffins but lurking deep inside is a bunch of fiber.  Great for breakfast or snacks and almost guilt free.  I have to admit I was experimenting with a variety of substitutions for this recipe and next time they will be even better.  It's just cooking so don't ever be afraid to adjust a recipe to your taste!  Besides, if they don't turn out you can always use them as hockey pucks!  Fortunately these were edible and tasty!


1 c oats
1 c whole wheat flour
2 tsp baking powder
2 T brown sugar
 2 T flax seed meal
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt

Preheat oven to 375 degrees and mix the above.  To this add the following:
1 c honey flavored Greek yogurt
1 mashed banana
2 eggs
2 T molasses
1/2 tsp vanilla

Fold in the following:
1/4 c chopped pecans
3 T crystallized ginger
1/4 c golden raisins

Grease  a muffin tin or use paper muffin cups and fill each one about 2/3 full.  Bake for about 20 minutes or until done.  Makes about 1 dozen muffins.

  1. These give me the chance to sneak some oats to my sons diet. I love Greek yogurt and I am sure I would love these little treats.
