1/12th of recipe (1 muffin): 103 calories, 2.5g total fat (0.5g sat. fat), 176mg sodium, 19.5g carbs, 2g fiber, 5g sugars, 3g protein

Prep: 15 minutes
Cook: 20 minutes


1 large orange

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 whipped butter or light buttery spread

2 1/2 tbsp. Truvia spoonable no-calorie sweetener (or another natural brand that’s about twice as sweet as sugar)

1 tsp. vanilla extract

1 1/2 tsp. baking powder

1 tsp. cinnamon

1/2 tsp. baking soda

1/4 tsp. ground ginger

1/8 tsp. salt

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.

Zest and juice the orange; you’ll need 1 1/2 tbsp. zest and 1/4 cup juice.

Pulse oats to the consistency of coarse flour in a blender. Add orange juice and all remaining ingredients except cranberries and orange zest. Blend until completely smooth and uniform, stopping and stirring if needed. (Do not over-blend.)

Add cranberries and orange zest. Gently stir. Transfer to the pan, and smooth out the tops. Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean, 18 - 20 minutes.
