    These look so yummy! I have a ton of apples that we picked so will definitely be trying these. I like that they don’t have a ton of fat in them as well.

    Oatmeal is a perfect powder. I have been using it for over 2 years. I love having it for my breakfast. I will try this recipe

    Made this tonight and will definitely make again sometime. I tweaked the recipe a bit – did a mix of wholewheat and white flour, and subbed out 1/2 cup of flour for 1/2 cup of Quest banana cream protein powder. Trying to reduce my sugar intake so I halved the sugar, and did 3/4 cup mashed banana and 1/4 cup applesauce. Also left peel on the apples, and I must have made these smaller than you did because 15 minutes @350 was perfect. Super moist and on the healthier side, thanks for the recipe 😀 , wish I could give more than 5 stars
