This is not OATMEAL, but oat BRAN muffins. I have made these for about five years now, and I really love them. They are great made with cinnamon or cranberry applesauce, as well as plain applesauce. My daughter loves them and I hope you will enjoy them, too!

1/2 cup dark brown sugar
1 1/2 cups oat bran

4 tablespoons vegetable oil
