Malt O Meal Applesauce Baby Muffies

So if any of you are following our blog you may know that we are in the middle of a kitchen remodel. A large portion of the contents of my kitchen cabinets are packed in boxes in our guest room.  Our grocery options in our house are extremely limited because it’s difficult to cook.  I pretty much just have stuff on hand to fix meals for the twins who are 10 months old. I love Malt O Meal and I’ve always seen the recipe on the side of the box for Magic Muffins but never tried to make them. I recently made Greek yogurt applesauce oatmeal muffins for the twins and they loved them so I was going for a similar muffin but I wanted to try to use some of my Malt O Meal. I modified the recipe on the box because I wasn’t crazy about all of the sugar in the original recipe so I sweetened with applesauce a 1/4 c of brown sugar. I’ll warn you, if you like super sweet muffins these probably aren’t for you, but I was making them for a quick and easy snack for our babies. The original recipe calls for 1/2 cup of sugar so you could definitely add more to it if they aren’t sweet enough for you. 

These are super easy to throw together and I literally made them from start to finish in about 25 min. Let me know what you (or your kids) think!

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Combine all ingredients in mixing bowl. Spray mini muffin pan with non stick cooking spray or use mini muffin papers. Fill mini muffin cups (I use a medium sized cookie dropper). Bake for 12-14 min.
