Oatmeal Cups

This is one of those recipes that gets passed around facebook.  I thought I'd give it a try.

• 1 egg 
• 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 
• 1 cup crabapple sauce
• 1 banana, mashed 
• 1/4 cup sugar
• 2 1/2 cups rolled oats 
• 1/8 cup chia seeds (optional) 
• 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon 
• 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder 
• 1/2 teaspoon salt 
• 1 1/4 cups milk 

• Optional toppings: blueberries, raisins, walnuts, chocolate chips, pomegranate seeds. Ingredients: 

• Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 
• Mix eggs, vanilla, applesauce, banana and sugar together in a bowl. 
• Add in oats, chia seeds (if using), cinnamon, baking powder, salt and mix well with wet ingredients. 
• Finally pour in milk and combine. 
• Line a 12 cup muffin tin with paper liners. 
• Divide mixture evenly into muffin tin cups. I used a 1/4 measuring cup, measure just a tad under 1/4 cup to make 12 servings. 
• Add the toppings. 

 I made a few changes, (crabapple sauce instead of applesauce, for example), doubled the recipe, and divided it into 36 muffin cups.  I think any jam or marmalade would work fine instead of applesauce, and I'll be trying it again with blueberry and raspberry sauce.  Mine was a bit watery though, so I'll add a bit more oatmeal until it's a thicker consistency.
