“This is not OATMEAL, but oat BRAN muffins. I have made these for about five years now, and I really love them. They are great made with cinnamon or cranberry applesauce, as well as plain applesauce. My daughter loves them and I hope you will enjoy them, too!” - by Bron

They defrost ..." See moreon their own in probably 1/2 hour or so, but 20 second in the microwave makes it even faster. In any case, they taste fresh baked. We also like to add 1 cup of chopped walnuts (not too finely chopped) and recently my wife has taken to adding 1 1/2 cups of raisins. Another variation is that we have taken to greasing a cookie sheet and putting a tablespoon glob and making big "cookies" out of them, and they actually are more convenient to eat. I can't say enough good things about this recipe. It's just the best. Well worth the effort, especially if you're like me, and just like the idea of having a good tasting source of roughage in your diet. And they are so easy to eat on the go."

The second time I made them I reduced the baking soda and baking powder to 1 teaspoon each, increased the oil to 1/3 of..." See more a cup and added a cup of blueberries. Turned out perfect.
