Applesauce n’ Cinnamon Muffins

Applesauce n’ Cinnamon Muffins

For snacking or a breakfast on-the-go, these little gems burst with fruity flavour from both apples and olive oil! These are a morning hit in my house, rounding out a continental meal with hard boiled eggs and fresh fruit. Win!

Servings: 12 muffins
  • 1 1/2 cups apple sauce, any kind, homemade or jarred
  • 3/4 cup brown or coconut sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup oat flour* (grind rolled oats in blender!)
  • 1/2 cup each whole-wheat and all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp fine sea salt
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  1. Preheat oven to 375 deg F. Stir together apple sauce, sugar, egg, oil and vanilla until thoroughly mixed.

  2. Whisk together all 3 flours with baking powder, salt and cinnamon in separate bowl. Stir into applesauce mixture until just combined. Don’t overmix!

  3. Divide and scoop out muffins into a greased 12-cup muffin tray. Each muffin cup should be filled about 2/3, leaving room for rising.

    NOTE: greasing the pan, instead of using paper muffin liners, will allow more heat to hug each muffin and result in a better rise plus a golden brown exterior.

  4. Bake muffins for 18-20 minutes, or until toothpick inserted into centre of muffin comes out clean. Cool for 20 minutes before removing each one from pan.

Recipe Notes

Muffins will keep at room temp in sealed container for 3 days, otherwise freeze for snacking later 😊

*Sub in almond flour for oat, either 50/50 with oat or 100% almond.
