|3/4 serving||Unsweetened Applesauce||3/4 cup|
|2||lemons, juiced and zested||240 g|
|1/4 cup||canola oil||65 mL|
|1/4 cup||milk, partly skimmed, 2%||65 mL|
|1/2 cup||sugar||110 g|
|1/2 tsp||salt||2 g|
|1 tsp||baking soda||3 g|
|9 g||poppy seeds||1 tbsp|
|1/2 cup||rolled oats||45 g|
|1/2 cup||almonds, ground||70 g|
|2 1/4 cups||whole wheat flour||300 g|
- Preheat oven to 175°C/350°F. Place 12 large paper muffin cups in one or more 12 cup muffin pan. Depending on the required amount, you may have to bake in batches.
- In a large bowl, mix the egg whites, Unsweetened Applesauce, zest and lemon juice, oil, milk, sugar, baking soda and salt. Mix well. It's normal that the mixture foams, it's the reaction between the baking soda and lemon juice.
- Add the flour, ground almonds and rolled oats to the bowl and mix well. Add the poppy seeds and mix well.
- Using an ice cream scoop, spoon the batter into the prepared muffin cups.
- Bake in the middle of the oven for about 20-25 min, until a tooth-pick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean. Take the pan out of the oven, then put each of the paper lined muffins on a rack to cool. Serve.
