Amyella’s Low-Cal Pumpkin Oatmeal Muffins

Here’s the recipe for the pumpkin oatmeal muffins I am enjoying this week. The ingredients have been modified by the brilliant Miss Amyella to allow you to have TWO dense, moist, delicious muffins as one carb serving.


Maggie’s Note: I subbed 1/2 cup of wheat bran for the 1/2 cup of Fiber One cereal and 5 oz. of unsweetened apple sauce for the 5 oz. of baby food prunes in this recipe and still had great results.

As some of you might have noticed, Amyella recently switched her blog to private/invitation only because she was being pestered by some sad, mean-spirited commenters. If anyone is interested in an invitation to view AmyellaÒ€ℒs blog (which is full of great recipes for clean eats), please contact me with your email address and handle used to comment on her blog in the past (if applicable), and I will pass on your info to Amyella (aka She Who Issueths The Invitations).

  1. Thanks for posting this..
    Do you know why Amyella’s blog went private? I can’t access her stuff anymore. It’s not like I was a lurker; I commented on some of her entries so she should have some idea that I exist. I’m sad.. πŸ™

  2. don’t be sad— email her and ask for an invite. She had a nefarious ‘e-stalker’ so she decided to make her blog private. but she likes having readers, and is happy when asked for invites. πŸ™‚

  3. Yes, if anyone is interested in an invitation to view Amyella’s blog, please contact me with your email address, and I will pass on your info to Amyella. :em02:

  4. Thanks for passing on Amyella’s info to me, Maggie.. now I can see her blog just fine πŸ™‚

    Unfortunately, I just made these muffins and they taste HORRIBLE πŸ™ Really bitter and overpoweringly like baking soda. Was 2 teaspoons of baking soda really necessary? Maybe I’m an idiot and accidentally did 2 tablespoons, which would make sense.

  5. Elissa – Hmm…The baking soda wasn’t overpowering when I made these, though my batch wasn’t super sweet since I cut the Splenda down to 9 packets and er…might have overdone it on the salt. I’ve been eating them with more savory dishes as I would corn bread. Perhaps we should ask Amyella? πŸ™‚
