Oatmeal muffins [Easy + Customizable]

Replace regular flour with these healthy, customizable oatmeal muffins. Made with ground whole grain oats, unrefined sugar and dairy free ingredients for a muffin recipe the whole family will love.

At least once a day I get an angry comment from someone complaining about all of the text before the recipe. “Go to the recipe!”, “Nobody cares! Just share the recipe! Are frequent in my comments box. And despite having a very prominent “Go to Recipe” button at the top of the page, they keep coming.

And you know what? They don’t really bother me. I know where these people come from. You are here for the recipe and that is exactly what I want to suggest to you. But what these people might not realize is that in order for you to find the recipe, you have to play a game, and that game is with Google.

Unfortunately, Google doesn’t prioritize posts that simply share a recipe. There is a lot to do, but in addition to the recipe, you need to consider keywords and headers, alt tags, and rich snippets. There is so much that non-food bloggers don’t understand about this space. So whenever I see one of these comments, I snicker sweetly to myself and usually say out loud “yeah … me too.” Okay, let’s talk about oatmeal muffins.

Ingredients you need:

  • Oatmeal – you can use store bought products or grind it yourself
  • Coconut palm sugar – or brown sugar or other granulated sugar
  • Baking soda + baking powder
  • Cinnamon
  • Applesauce – you can substitute with canned pumpkin or mashed banana
  • Almond milk – do not hesitate to subtitle any other type of milk
  • Coconut oil – it adds humidity
  • Large egg
  • Vanilla extract
  • Optional additions– chocolate chips, blueberries, raisins etc …

What is oatmeal?

Oatmeal is basically ground oatmeal. You can buy pre-ground oats at the grocery store or even make oatmeal at home. Making oatmeal is super easy. Simply add your oatmeal to your blender and mix until a fine consistency of flour forms. i use my Vitamix which does the trick very well, but any old blender should do.

You can use both roatmeal or quick-cooking oatmeal. DO NOT use steel cut oats because they can’t always be finely ground into the flour needed for these oatmeal muffins.

How to make oatmeal muffins

STEP 1: Combine oatmeal, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt.

2ND STEP: In another bowl, combine the applesauce, almond milk, coconut oil, egg and vanilla. Add the dry mix to wet and stir until combined. Fold the complements of your choice.

STEP 3: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and grease or place liners in a muffin pan. Divide the dough evenly among 10 cups. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool for 10 min. Remove from the pan and let cool completely on a wire rack.

STEP 4: Store up to 5 days in an airtight container or in the freezer for months.

Flavor variations

The sky’s the limit when it comes to flavor variations on these oatmeal muffins. You can really add 1/2 to 1 cup of your favorite blends. Really everything will work, but here are some suggestions:

  • Chocolate – 1/2 cup of chocolate chips
  • Peanut Butter – 1/4 cup peanut butter – just mix it right into the batter! You can also add chocolate chips
  • Berries – 1 / 2-1 cup of blueberries or any other fresh or frozen berry
  • Grated carrot – 1 large carrot for carrot cake muffins
  • Grated zucchini – 1 large zucchini for an extra boost (just be sure to remove any moisture!)
  • Dried fruit – use 1/2 cup of whatever you have on hand.
