Peach Oatmeal Pecan Muffins

I came up with a healthy recipe for peach oatmeal muffins which have a hearty, nutty texture.  Each muffin has approximately 98 calories.    If brown sugar is used instead, the calorie count per muffin increases to 111.  I used Xylitol (Ideal Brown no calorie brown sugar substitute) as a sweetener. This sweetener contains 101 calories per 1/2 cup.  Packed brown sugar contains 415 calories per 1/2 cup. 

Peach Oatmeal Pecan Muffins

3/4 cup lowfat milk
1 egg
3/4 cup fat free sour cream
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup natural applesauce
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/3 cup Ideal brown (Brown sugar substitute)
1 cup Old fashioned Oatmeal
2 cups whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup chopped peaches
1/4 cup chopped pecans

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Mix together lowfat milk, egg, sour cream, vegetable oil, applesauce, vanilla, and ideal brown in a small bowl until blended.

In a seperate bowl mix together oatmeal, whole wheat flour, cinnamon, baking powder, salt and chopped pecans.

Add the milk and sour cream mixture to the flour and dry ingredients.  Stir until combined.  Fold in chopped peaches and gently mix together.

Add muffin liners to a muffin tin and add batter.

Place in preheated oven and cook for about 20-25 minutes until heated through.

This recipe yields about 24 muffins at 98 calories each.  Enjoy!
