  • 1 1/2 cups unsweetened almond milk or any other milk
  • 2 large eggs or use flax eggs for vegan. For each flax egg - 1 tablespoon flax seed + 3 tablespoons water
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup Or honey
  • 4 teaspoons melted coconut oil Or olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 medium apple peeled cored & diced (about 1 cup)
  • 3 1/2 cups gluten-free old-fashioned rolled oats , need a grain-free oatmeal? Swap oats with equal mix of roughly chopped coconut flakes and sliced almonds (about 1 3/4 cups of each) or try our Paleo Oatmeal or Keto Oatmeal recipes.
  • thin apple slices optional, for garnish


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease a 12-cup muffin tin with non-stick cooking spray or line baking sheet with silicone liners. Set aside.

  2. In a large bowl, mix the flax seeds and water to make the flax egg. Set aside until thickened, about 2 minutes (skip if using regular egg). After 2 minutes, whisk in milk, maple syrup, coconut oil, vanilla, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, applesauce, and chopped apples. Fold in oats.

  3. Divide batter evenly into prepared muffin tin or silicone muffin liners. Top with more sliced apples, if desired.
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 18-25 minutes, or until set.
  5. Enjoy immediately or freeze in a freezer-safe bag or container for up to 3 months. Reheat in the microwave when ready to enjoy.
