Pistachio Muffins1 C. all-purpose flour

1 C. whole-wheat flour

3/4 C. brown sugar

3/4 C. low-fat milk

1/2 C. applesauce

1/2 C. vegetable or canola oil

1/2 C. oats – quick or old fashioned

1/3 C. pistachio nuts – finely chopped

1 large egg – lightly beaten

1 T. baking powder

1/2 tsp. salt


For Topping (just mix togeter):

1/4 C. pistachio nuts – finely chopped

3 T. brown sugar


Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Prepare 12 muffin C. with papers or generous coating of cooking spray. In a large mixing bowl, sift together the flours, sugar, oats, nuts, baking powder and salt. In a separate bowl, mix together milk, applesauce, oil and egg. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mix until just moistened. Fill prepared muffin C. a little more than 3/4 full. Sprinkle topping evenly over each muffin. Bake for about 20 minutes until golden brown. Stick a toothpick in the center of one of the muffins. If it comes out dry, the muffins are done. If there’s a little batter stuck to it, you need to cook the muffins longer. Allow muffins to cool before serving.
