Lately, I've been experimenting with different varieties of muffins but today's featured flavor is this basic oat muffin.
It's gluten-free as is and is also easy to make vegan with just a few swaps.
This muffin is made with nutritious ingredients like whole grain oats and applesauce and is perfect for breakfast on the go.
How to Make Oat Flour Muffins
First, preheat your oven to 350° F and line a muffin tin with 12 baking cups.
Whisk together eggs (use flax eggs for vegan option), melted butter (use vegan butter for vegan option), milk (use plant-based milk for vegan option), coconut sugar, unsweetened applesauce, honey (use maple syrup for vegan option) and vanilla extract in a large bowl.
In a separate bowl, combine gluten-free oat flour, cinnamon, salt and baking soda.
Stir dry ingredients into wet ingredients.
Fill baking cups with batter until used up.
Top with gluten-free oats.
Using a pastry brush, coat the top of each muffin with melted butter.
Use vegan butter for the vegan option.
Bake for 22-24 minutes until toothpick comes out clean.

Turned out great! Using a tin pan, it was a success! It baked through & no wet spots! I was very hesitant as I served it bc he’s so picky & turns down most foods he hasn’t already tried, but even my very picky 13 yo son liked it! I was so delighted! This will be a keeper for sure + may throw in some chocolate chips & banana minus the sweetener next time! Thank you!
Thanks Patty! So happy you and your son both enjoyed the muffins! And, glad they worked out with the substitutions. Thanks so much for stopping by and sharing! Hope you have a wonderful rest of your day! 🙂
I’m making these so just waiting for them to come out of the oven. I ground up regular Quaker oats to a fine powder since I don’t have the one your using and turned out just fine. I used 12 pkts generic Stevia sweetener instead of coconut sugar + tsp Log Cabin syrup so the batter tasted just fine. I baked it in a 8x6 foil tin instead of cups. I’ll let you know how this turned out!
Those look so so so so tasty! I would totally drizzle some extra butter or coconut butter on top! 😉
Yeeeees! Mmmmm...sounds good! Thanks GiGi! 🙂
