Strawberry Cinnamon Muffins (C2)

Recipe Author: Becky Yokeley Love

2 scoops strawberry whey powder (vanilla would be fine too)
1 cup wheat flour
1 cup oats
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt (optional)
1 tsp cinnamon
3/4 applesauce
2 egg whites (6 tbsp liquid egg whites)
12 packets stevia (sugar substitute equal to 1/2 cup sugar)
1/2 cup water
1 cup frozen strawberries (yes frozen don't thaw see note below)

Preheat oven to 350 and spray muffin tins with non stick spray.

Mix flour, whey powder, oats, soda, cinnamon, and salt together.

Add applesauce, sugar, egg whites, and water, mix until just blended.

I get the no sugar added whole strawberries from walmart...I took out a few and chopped them up with a knife some little chunks, big chunks etc. and measured out a cup of chopped strawberries (about 6 ounces chopped)

Add in chopped strawberries and stir gently to cover.

Bake for 25-35 min (350 oven) or until tops have lightly browned. I make jumbo muffins (6ct) and had to bake for 35 min.
