Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal Muffins… Gluten, Egg, Dairy, Cane Sugar Free

I’ve entered this recipe in the SOS Kitchen Challenge! To view other recipes in the challenge, click HERE!

I’ve been in a breakfast rut lately, especially since giving up chicken eggs. I miss my eggs!   I needed something new.  Enter my new recipe for the Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal Muffin:

It’s like eating a bowl of oatmeal with cinnamon and apple chunks, but in muffin form. 🙂

Just make sure your rolled oats are gluten free certified.  I buy mine from Gluten Free Central out here in Wasilla.  You can get a 3 lbs bag for $17.

This recipe is linked to Allergy Free Wednesdays.

2 TBSP ground flax meal + 6 TBSP boiling water
3 cups gluten free certified rolled oats
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp sea salt
1 tsp cinnamon
2 TBSP olive oil
2 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup honey (or maple syrup for vegan)
1 apple, shredded (I used a Fuji apple)
1/4 cup unsweetened apple sauce
1 cup chopped apple (leave the skin on)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees (F).

Mix flax and boiling water.  Set aside and let sit for 10 minutes.

Using a food processor or blender, grind the oats until they are the consistency of flour.  Don’t worry if you have a few larger bits here and there.  It just adds character to your muffins!

Combine oat flour, baking powder, soda, salt, and cinnamon in a large mixing bowl.

Shred apple using a medium sized cheese grater (leave the skin on).  Place in a medium sized mixing bowl and stir in other wet ingredients until well blended.  Slowly pour the wet ingredients into the dry and mix well.

Fold in chopped apples and divide batter into 12 paper lined or greased muffin tins.  Bake for 20 to 25 minutes.

Enjoy your breakfast!!

I just made these and they are truly the best GF muffins I have made to date. They are both flavorful and moist. I usually never post recipes on FB but I had to share this one. Thank you so much :)

These muffins are wonderful and this recipe is a keeper. Like another comment said, I was also a little skeptical. My thought was that they may be too heavy and filling for my liking with just oat flour, but in the end, I'm very pleased with the texture and consistency. I even ended up adding a small handful of whole oats for aesthetics and texture.

It's a little strange I didn't have applesauce on hand, so I used 1 mashed banana (since everyone recommended upping the applesauce to 1/2 cup). I also put a handful of cranberries in half of the remaining batter and those turned out fantastic. I would also like to suggest using two different kinds of apples. I chopped a Granny Smith up and shredded a Gala.

Thanks for sharing, hope you continue to do so! Forever grateful for your help with such a challenging and demanding lifestyle.

Hi Donna! No, I think you'd be okay to add a few more tablespoons of apple sauce. I'm glad you enjoyed them! ;) Megan
