You know how Grape Nuts can taste like moving boxes? Unless you microwave them with milk, and then they are seriously heaven.

Well, this stuff – even with a nuking – still tastes pretty stiff. So I decided to make them into muffins.

Soak a cup in a cup of Almond Milk for 5 minutes. Then add 1/2 cup applesauce.

FYI – these little packets = 1/4 cup each. So, 2 of those. You’re welcome.

The remaining ingredients are 3 TB egg whites, 1/4 cup brown sugar, 1 TB oil, 1 teaspoon vanilla, 1 TB baking powder, pinch salt, 1 3/4 cups AP flour. Using an ice cream scoop, divide the batter into 15 muffin cups.

…soft, moist muffins. But SUPER STICKY. Either spray the paper first, or don’t use liners.

They’re not too sweet – you could probably double up on sugar. I just smeared mine in Kaya Jam.
