Cook: 20 minutes
1 1/2 cups old-fashioned oats
1 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup (about 4 large) egg whites or fat-free liquid egg substitute
1/4 cup light butter
2 1/2 tbsp. Truvia spoonable no-calorie sweetener (or another natural brand that’s about twice as sweet as sugar)
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1/8 tsp. salt
2/3 cup finely chopped Fuji or Gala apple
1/3 cup sweetened dried cranberries, chopped
Preheat oven to 350 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 remaining ingredients except apple and cranberries. Blend until completely smooth and uniform, stopping and stirring if needed. (Do not over-blend.)
Add apple and half of the chopped cranberries. Gently stir. Transfer to the pan, and smooth out the tops.
Top with remaining cranberries, and lightly press to adhere. Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean, about 18 minutes.

SmartPoints® value* not what you expected? We follow the same method as WW (formerly known as Weight Watchers) when calculating the value of a recipe: We add up the SmartPoints® values* of the individual ingredients using the Recipe Builder, not the calculator. (Many foods have a value of zero and remain zero in recipes.)
