Ingredients
  • 1 cup old-fashioned oats (rolled oats)
  • 1 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • ½ cup milk or buttermilk or milk of choice
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 4 Tablespoons butter or coconut oil, melted
  • ⅓ cup sugar
  • ¾ cup flour (can use whole wheat flour)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Line a 12-count muffin tin with liners or grease the muffin cups then set it aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, stir together the oatmeal, applesauce, milk, egg, vanilla, butter and sugar. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt.
  4. Make a well in the center and pour in the applesauce mixture. Stir until just combined (don't overmix or the muffins will be dense and dry).
  5. Distribute the batter evenly among the 12 muffin cups.
  6. Bake the muffins for 15-20 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Don't overbake or the muffins will be dry.
  7. Remove the muffins to a rack to cool completely.
Notes
You can freeze these muffins in a freezer safe plastic bag once cooled completely and pull out when needed.
