Megan's Healthy Maple and Brown Sugar Muffins

I have been wanting to make these muffins ever since I saw where Megan had made them. The only problem is there here in Knoxville, you can't find the Malt O Meal hot wheat cereal. The closest thing that I could find was Quaker instant hot wheat cereal. I decided that I would give it a try with the instant.

These muffins took no time to whip up and put into the oven. The verdict? My muffins didn't rise. They puffed up just a little. This could be because I used the instant cereal or because I baked these at 350 degrees instead of 450. My oven tends to bake hotter than it should. They tasted good, but I would like to try them with the malt o meal cereal to compare. These are definitely a dense, stick to your rib muffin, as Megan had said.

Maple and Brown Sugar Magic Muffins
Adapted from Malt O Meal

1 1/4 whole wheat flour
1 cup Maple and Brown Sugar flavored Malt O Meal hot wheat cereal, dry
1/3 cup Splenda or sugar
3/4 cup low fat milk
1/4 cup applesauce
1/4 cup egg substitute
1 TBSP baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla

Mix all ingredients till just moistened. Pour into greased muffin pan.

Bake at 400 18-20 minutes.

Your muffins look and sound wonderful. You're right about Knoxville - it's not gorcery shopping, more like a scavenger hunt.

The first question many people have about links london one way links is why are they so important.If you links of london compared two websites that had exactly the links jewellery same content but one of them had one hundred one way links versus none on the other site links of london uk you would see that the site with one way links had a much better cheap links of london ranking with each search engine. links of london bracelet The primary reason for this is there is no reason for one site links of london charms to link to another without a reciprocating link other than that links of london watches site determines that the website is an authority on it's given niche links of london rings A one way link is when a website links to another site without links of london necklaces asking for a reciprocal link back.
