Cook: 20 minutes
2 cups old-fashioned oats
1 cup fat-free plain Greek yogurt
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/2 cup (about 4 large) egg whites or fat-free liquid egg substitute
1/4 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1/4 cup Truvia spoonable no-calorie sweetener (or another natural brand about twice as sweet as sugar)
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
2/3 cup finely chopped Fuji or Gala apples (about 1 medium apple)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a 12-cup muffin pan with foil baking cups, or spray it with nonstick spray.
Pulse oats to the consistency of coarse flour in a blender.
Add all remaining ingredients except apple. Blend at high speed until completely smooth and uniform, stopping and stirring if needed.
Fold in 1/3 cup apple. Add batter to muffin pan, and smooth out the tops.
Sprinkle with remaining 1/3 cup apple, and lightly press to adhere.
Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean, 16 - 18 minutes.

HG Heads-Up: Oats are naturally gluten free, but some companies warn they might contain gluten due to sharing equipment with gluten-containing grains. Check your labels if you avoid gluten for health reasons!
