Satisfying Cinnamon Apple Oatmeal Muffins
The biggest star in these muffins is the Pacific brand Steel-Cut Oatmeal. There are five different flavors to choose from and today’s recipe utilizes the apple cinnamon oatmeal.
The great thing about this oatmeal is it contains, 4-7 grams of protein per serving, 3-4 grams of fiber per serving, and 25-31 grams of heart-healthy whole grains per serving while being soy free, dairy free, and free of GMOs.
This alone makes these Cinnamon Apple Oatmeal Muffins a great choice for breakfast!
Let’s discuss flavor options
While I used the apple cinnamon oatmeal, you can choose to use any of the five flavors available. Maple Brown Sugar would be a wonderful flavor to play around with. And just imagine all the different ways you can flavor the Lightly Sweetened option.
If you are dairy free, you can opt to use almond or soy milk instead of regular milk. Add in your spices, dried fruit, nuts, fresh or frozen fruit. The possibilities are endless.
Rich in cinnamon apple flavor, crumbly and moist in texture, and hearty enough to be a great breakfast source, these muffins are going to be a game changer. They are easy and convenient making them the perfect take along meal!
