Welcome to Tweaked at Chez Jan de la Dayton....translated to 'tweaked at Jan's house in Dayton'! Sounds fancy, but it's not. If you choose to share a recipe, be kind and give me kudos for it. The pictures are NOT to be taken off this blog unless used in a direct link to this blog. Once upon a time I was a Weight Watchers leader....that chapter is closed. But I still like to eat and bake and don't like the weight that finds its way to me too easily. So I go find delicious-sounding recipes and tweak them. Some recipes, however, just don't turn out right if they're tweaked. I've not posted anything....so far.....that isn't WW friendly. That might change, and I'll warn you if I post something with 'scary' P+ values. For those who don't use substitutions, the ratio for Splenda granulated/sugar is 1:1 and the ratio for egg substitute/eggs is 1/4 cup of egg sub = 1 egg. Now.....let's have some fun in the kitchen!!!

Oatmeal Butterscotch Muffins

I was in the mood to bake some muffins. I really wanted some chocolate muffins but they were too high in PointsPlus™. And then I needed to use ingredients I had on-hand because I didn't feel like going out in the cold. So this is what I came up with. Even Abe liked it.....we shared one.

OATMEAL BUTTERSCOTCH MUFFINS
Makes 12 Muffins
1 Muffin = 4 PointsPlus™


1 cup old fashioned oats (NOT instant)
1 cup fat-free milk
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
2 egg whites
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup butterscotch morsels


Preheat oven to 400º. Spray muffin pan; set aside.

In a medium mixing bowl, combine oats, milk, applesauce and egg whites; mix well.


In a large mixing bowl, mix together flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. Fold in the oat mixture (do NOT over mix).


Fold in the butterscotch morsels.


Spoon into the muffin cups.


Bake 20 minutes. Cool in pan on a rack for 5 minutes. Carefully go around the muffins with a thin knife/spatula to loosen and continue cooling on a rack.



MY SPIN: Normally the measurements are level, but not when it comes to cinnamon!! Do NOT do these in cupcake papers as they WILL stick to the paper.

Now for the 'legal mumbo-jumbo' to keep me out of court!! *** The PointsPlus™ value for this recipe was calculated by me (Jan Gomes) and is not an endorsement or approval of this recipe by Weight Watchers International, Inc., the owner of the PointsPlus™ registered trademark. ***

Later!
Loving Life(time)!
