Dukan Oat Bran Muffin Tops

We all loved these.

A couple weeks ago we tried Vicki C.'s oat bran cookie recipe and after throwing it together in a rush and not measuring correctly, the cookie didn't seem to turn out.  Last week we tried the recipe again and still came up with a very dry mix, nothing like a cookie dough, so we added an additional 3-4 T. of vanilla yogurt to the recipe, liked the consistency of the dough and baked the cookies.   The cookies turned out great, but they really reminded us of muffin tops, so we're calling this adjusted recipe "Oat Bran Muffin Tops".  We made two batches, one of the muffin tops and one of the recipe exactly like Vicki's and did a taste test with our family...the results....the family members who are also trying the healthy eating lifestyle enjoyed both styles while the non-dieters preferred the muffin tops.  One of our family members said "for healthy food, that tastes pretty darn good!"

We ended up making a couple batches of these muffin tops and leaving them in the fridge.  Warm the muffin top for approximately 10-15 seconds (depending on your microwave) and they taste almost fresh baked.  The recipe Vicki provided is great...very cinnamon-y like she says.  Next batch we're hoping to try a lemon oat bran muffin top.
