oat bran muffins
modified from "oat bran muffins" at
12 muffins
wouldn't it be fun to wake up to muffins on your windowsill?

1/2 cup brown sugar (or a little less)
1 1/2 cups oat bran (it's a hot cereal, red box, it was hard to find the first time!)
a little less than 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
1 cup chilled unsweetened applesauce
4 tablespoons fat free yogurt (i usually use plain or vanilla, but anything should work!)
a dash of cinnamon (optional)

1. preheat oven to 400 degrees f. grease 12 muffin cups.
2. blend together brown sugar, oat bran, flour, baking powder, soda, cinnamon and salt. add eggs, chilled applesauce, and yogurt. mix until well-blended. spoon batter into muffin cups. let stand 10 minutes.
3. bake at 400 degrees f for 15 minutes or until golden brown.

healthy cooking on a budget

disclaimer: i don't claim to be an expert on cooking, weight loss or even healthy eating, but i do love to cook, find healthy, taste bud-friendly tricks and most of all, i love to eat!

qualifications: what qualifies me to blog on cooking healthy on a small budget? well, as my husband is still a student, my budget is not what you'd call large. and as for the healthy part, when i was 10 i was diagnosed with pancreatitus - a disease that doesn't effect me much anymore unless i eat food that is too greasy or has too much fat (in which case, well, let's just say i get really sick). this had steered my experience and limited cooking expertise in a health-conscious direction.
