♪ What have you been baking lately?
Ooh ooh ooh yeah ♫
Ever since my daughters’ “Legends and Icons” dance recital last weekend, I just can’t get Janet out of my head…and Michael…and Gloria…and…PRINCE!
When they showed me these costumes, I said, “Oh, you’re dancing to Prince!”
And my daughters asked, “How did you know?”
“Oh, just a hunch!” 😉
Anyway, to answer my own question. I’ve been baking muffins, lots and lots of muffins. I’ve been experimenting with different varieties but today’s featured flavor is this basic oat muffin.
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.
Now, shove them in your face!
