  • 4 tablespoons coconut oil (melted)
  • 1 cup old-fashioned oats (rolled oats)
  • 1 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 ripe banana (mashed)
  • 1/3 cup real maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3/4 cup flour (3.75 ounces)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon


  1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Line your 12-count muffin tin with liners or grease and then set aside. I love to use these parchment liners

  2. In a medium size bowl, measure you coconut oil. Then melt in the microwave if needed. Add the oats, applesauce, egg, mashed banana, maple syrup & vanilla. Stir together then set aside.

  3. In a large bowl measure the flour (spoon and level, don't pack it in or measure 3.75 ounces). Add the baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon & salt. Stir till combined. Make a well and add the wet ingredients. Fold together just until there are no more flour streaks but be careful not to over-mix the batter.

  4. Distribute the batter evenly among the 12 muffin cups (I like to use a large cookie scoop for this!) Bake for 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. (I baked mine for 17 min.)

  5. Once slightly cooled remove and let cool completely on a cooling rack. 

Recipe Notes
