    You can adjust the amount of oats, eggs/egg whites or fruit as you wish to fit your diet plan. The muffins always come out well- simply increase/decrease baking time by a few minutes if the batter is runnier/thicker. ;)

    These look awesome! Definitely trying this, as I sometimes really need a convenient food. Did anyone try with ground oats and which worked better?

    I've tried the recipe with ground oats; the batter comes out even runnier and the muffins come out smaller although the texture is smoother. Personally I like the thicker texture and bigger volume when using unground oats.

    Do you soak the oats in the egg-whites for a bit to first to soften or just put them in and mix them up dry?

    I make these all the time (although, Anca's pumpkin ones taste way better than mine :bowdown:) -- I just toss everything together as is.

    :hug:

    No need to soak the oats. Well, unless you're using steel cut oats maybe. I always use old fashioned oats for muffin loaves.

    Bump with pumpkin note, see below

    QUOTE=Anca;1012712]Yep, exact recipe as originally posted- except I bake them a little longer now (maybe 35-40 min depending how "wet" they're looking in the middle). ;)

    I used 50 g banana to replace the berries for some of the muffin loaves and 100 g pumpkin puree to make the pumpkin ones Patricia liked.[/QUOTE]

    I can't find any mini-loaf pans that are big enough to make this :( They're all just a tad too small.

    are you over flowing your pan?

    I have ceramic ones from places like michaels that are a tad bigger.

    I cannot wait to try these. I am in love with my egg white/oat pancake right now but this would be so handy on Mondays when I am so busy. Also hubby goes to work at 5am and he just started his plan. This would be a lifesaver for him. I will just have to make a batch with his macro's and a batch with mine. Thinking it might be easiest to make each in a big loaf pan then weigh it and divide it in three's. I don't have the mini loafs either but can look on-line. We don't have a ton of shopping options here in Juneau.

    Thanks Anca, cannot wait til I am allowed to try the pumpkin ones. Is pumpkin considered a fruit on plan?? If so then maybe I can try them soon. I do get fruit and I could sub it out if the boss lets me sub next week. I am such a newbie, sorry if this question is so elementary. I just have no clue yet. :)

    These muffins have become my mid-week breakfast staple. I use 3 regular muffin pans, instead of the minis. I just bought the disposible pans from the store, and will reuse them until they crack. 3 uses so far!

    I've made lemon/mixed-berry, lemon/strawberry, pumpkin, and a pineapple coconut. On days when I get a full serving of fruit, I heat up my extra 1/2 serving and pour it over the top to make it extra fruity. Yum!!

    Wow, these look great and I can have one more option !

    Can I use Stevia instead of Splenda and if so, should I replace Splenda with same amounts of Stevia ?

    Thanks,
