I just made some very tasty LOW CALORIE Pumpkin Oat Bran Muffins (with only 65 cal. per muffin). Oh! My! These are going to definitely be my "treat" during the holidays, as everyone else consumes 10 pounds of sugar (or more).
I got the basic recipe off of the "SparkPeople" website, but changed things a bit to make them even more Low Calorie and with a bit more "Spice" to them.
Preheat Oven to 425F
Bowl #1 Combine:
1 sm. can Pumpkin (1 3/4 cup)
1 tsp. Vanilla
1/2 cup Sugar Substitute (Splenda measures the same as sugar)
1/3 cup 1% Milk
1/3 cup Unsweetened Applesauce
Bowl #2 Combine:
1 cup Whole Wheat Flour (I grind my own)
2/3 cup Oat Bran (bought in the hot cereal aisle)
1 tsp. Baking Soda
1 tsp. Baking Powder
1 tsp. Salt
1 1/2 tsp. Cinnamon
1/2 tsp. Ground Ginger
1/4 tsp. Nutmeg
1/8 tsp. All-Spice
Combine the contents of both bowls. Mix well. Fill 12 Muffin Cups. Bake 20 minutes.
* * * use real sugar if you'd like, just add 35 calories per muffin. They are still definitely a Low Calorie option at 100 Cal. Per Muffin.
These are SERIOUSLY DELICIOUS . . . and ONLY 65 CALORIES. WOO HOO!
