As Seen on Fox 11: Guilt-Free Healthy Snacks That Will Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth

It’s the new year, and a great way to get your eating back on track is to have healthier eating alternatives. Pastry chef Jamie Maxfield prepared these oatmeal muffins on Fox in the Morning.

She used oatmeal instead of flour and honey instead of sugar. The muffins also have some Greek yogurt added for protein.

For different alternatives, you can also use apple sauce or bananas to add a bit more sweetness. You can even add fresh fruit, dried fruit, nuts or coulis to vary up your recipe.
