A favorite flavor combination in a diabetic friendly muffin with healthful oatmeal, cinnamon spice and a touch of molasses. Delicious start to any day. And remember, cinnamon is thought to help insulin! (NOTE: used all purpose flour, sugar used for granulated sweetener, low sodium baking powder)

What you'll need

  • 1 cup quick cooking oats
  • 2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 2 cup flour
  • 2/3 cup granular sweetener
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 3/4 cup light margarine
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tbsp. molasses
  • 1/2 tsp. cream of tartar
  • 1 cup egg substitute
  • 2 1/2 cup peeled, grated apples (3-4 apples)


  • Step 1
    Preheat oven to 375-degrees. Lightly grease a muffin pan with nonstick food spray. Set aside.
  • Step 2
    Place oats, flour, baking powder, baking soda, cream of tartar, cinnamon and Splenda Granular in a mixing bowl. Mix together and set aside.
  • Step 3
    Place spread and molasses in a medium size bowl. Add half of the oat/flour mixture. Cream together on medium speed until blended. Add remaining oat mixture. Mix well.
  • Step 4
    Measure grated apples and gently squeeze to remove excess water. Add grated apples and mix on low speed until just blended. Scoop batter into prepared muffin pan.
  • Step 5
    Place all topping ingredients in a blender. Blend until finely ground. Sprinkle evenly over muffins.
  • Step 6
    Bake muffins in preheated 375-degree oven 20-25 minutes.
