• skinny oatmeal n muffins

    Mornings are made for muffins…like these blueberry muffins, strawberry muffins, chocolate chip muffins or even these bran muffins  but sometimes muffins can be really full of all that stuff we don’t need (i.e. fat, calories & points)…but don’t worry I found these muffins!   First off I love oatmeal & I love muffins so the idea of putting oatmeal in a muffin made me a little giddy and then add in some brown sugar and maple syrup and I get super giddy.  Not only are these muffins loaded with things I love but they also taste anything but skinny, they actually taste very indulgent and you might even have some thoughts of guilt…
