  1. Preheat an oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease 12 muffin cups, or line with paper muffin liners. Whisk together 1 1/2 cups oatmeal, the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and 1/8 teaspoon of cinnamon in a mixing bowl; set aside.
  2. Whisk 1/2 cup brown sugar, egg white, applesauce, and milk together in a mixing bowl until smooth. Stir in the flour mixture until evenly moistened; it's ok if small, dry lumps remain. Pour the batter into the prepared muffin tin. Stir the 1/4 cup oatmeal, 1/4 cup brown sugar, 1 tablespoon cinnamon, and the melted butter in a small bowl; sprinkle this mixture over the muffins.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until golden and the tops spring back when lightly pressed, about 20 minutes. Cool at least 10 minutes before serving.

I don't think I did anything wrong, but these didn't turn out well at all. They were rubbery and stuck to the papers too much. Back to the drawing board on this one, folks.

I thought these were really good. I increased the cinnamon to a 1/2 tsp; I think next time I will add even more. I added a cup of diced apple and just for a little extra fiber I cut back on the...

You can use regular oats--no problem. I just made these and all I have are Old Fashioned Oats and they turned out just fine. I also used 2 cups whole wheat flour, 1/4 cup flax seed meal and I ...

These turned out really well. I followed the recipe exactly, with the substitution of 1 cup whole wheat flour, and the rest AP,and a bit more cinnamon. When adding the topping it would be helpfu...

Oh My Lord these are amazing muffins! It's hard to find muffins that are healthy, yet actually taste good. WOW!

Delicious! I used brummel and brown spread in place of the butter, and changed the amount of cinnamon in the batter. Per previous reviews, upped the amount of cinnamon to 1 Tbsp. It is the perfe...

As with other reviewers, I added a teaspoon of cinnamon, as well as some nutmeg and 1/4 t salt. I also replaced 3/4 C of the flour with wheat flour. Still very moist and yummy, and the topping i...

Very good! I make them for those quick mornings that I'm on the go! Just put'em in the freezer and grab as you go!!

These were very good and healthy. I recommend using a greased pan instead of paper liners; there is so little fat that they really stick to the paper. Will definitely make again :D
