(Dairy-Free) Blueberry Oatmeal Muffins

I stole these babies off of the lovable, popular food blog, Skinnytaste.  I was attracted to them because they use almond milk, agave nectar, blueberries, and oatmeal- four things I eat for breakfast nearly every morning. Yum. 

These muffins, might I warn you, DO in fact, taste "healthy"-- not always the rule, but generally speaking, most healthy muffins (those lacking in oil or butter for their moisture) sometimes turn out a bit more on the "rubbery" side. These are surprisingly NOT rubbery, but do have a texture that is a bit indicative of healthfulness, which, I very much like, which, some people, perhaps the more masculine population, would prefer not. 

Either way, whoever your eating audience may be, give them a whirl. Someone will love them. And that someone might just be you.

{Dairy-Free} Blueberry Oatmeal Muffins

1 1/2 cups Quaker quick oatmeal
1 cup unsweetened almond milk (or skim milk)
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
2 tbsp agave
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
2 egg whites
1 tbsp oil
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup white whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup fresh blueberries
Baking spray

Preheat oven to 400°. Line a muffin tin with liners and lightly spray with oil.

Place oats in a food processor or chopper and pulse a few times. Soak oats in milk for about 30 minutes.  In a medium bowl combine brown sugar, agave, apple sauce, vanilla, egg whites, oil and mix well.
In a third bowl combine whole wheat flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda and whisk to combine.
Combine oats and milk with sugar, applesauce mixture and mix well. Slowly add in the dry ingredients and mix until just incorporated. Fold in blueberries. Spoon into the muffin tin and bake for 22-24 minutes.

Oh hey girl, just made these delicious muffins tonight since I am all over this non-dairy with the babes, and they were great! Thanks for the recipe! Can't wait to meet the new one in a few weeks, the babies need some serious bonding time.
