Don't let the ingredients fool you these are delicious. I was skeptical but will be making more of these tomorrow.
2 cups whole wheat flour
2 cup oats, ground in a blender to make a powder
1 tbsp baking powder
2 1/2 tsp baking soda
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp salt
1 cup canola oil
2 cups applesauce*
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup water
1 cup frozen cranberries
~2 cups finely shredded beets**
1. Heat oven to 350oF
2. Mix first 7 ingredients; in a separate bowl mix oil apple sauce sugar eggs and water.
3. Combine mixtures and add cranberries and beets.
4. Fill lined muffin cups and bake for 25-30 min until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
This makes about 24 very tender muffins.
*I didn't have this much apple sauce. Instead I blended 2 cups of apples about 8 small, (cored but skins on) with the water and some of the oil to make an uncooked version.
**I used all the beets I shredded using a grater. This was probably slightly more than 2 cups 6 small beets. Anywhere between 1-2 cups should work fine.
