Tricking the Tongue...

    (Photo by author)
Trying to limit carbs? Saw these in the supermarket yesterday. I used to do this years
back. Now it's trendy. Not bad. Just cook to al dente with some tomato pasta sauce and
pretend it's the real thing. Can be eaten raw too as a cold 'pasta.'

These are gluten free, low sugar, fat-free muffins that are perfect for anyone watching calories, fat or eliminating gluten from their diet. And they taste wonderful. Recipe follows...

3 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon (more if you prefer)
1 single serving pack of all-natural apple sauce (3.9 oz.)
1 cup almond milk
1 T. pure maple syrup (if you are using unsweetened almond milk)
A handful of oatmeal roughly ground, mixed with 1 T. brown sugar.
Spoon into a muffin pan for eight (if a six muffin pan, make larger muffins)
Top with some of the oatmeal/brown sugar mixture.
Bake for 20 minutes. 
Cool slightly and remove from pan.
