These wholesome muffins are delicious and full of goodness. You can even freeze them so you always have extras on hand for breakfast on the go.


  • 1 2/3 cups quick oats
  • 1 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cups coconut sugar (or light brown sugar if you prefer)
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoons salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups low fat buttermilk
  • 1 1/2 cups peeled, grated apples


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Place oats in a food processor. Pulse 5-6 times until oats resemble a coarse flour.
  • Put oat flour in a large mixing bowl and add the flour, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Mix thoroughly until well combined.
  • In a separate bowl, beat eggs then incorporate buttermilk, sugar and vanilla. Whisk to combine then stir in grated apple.
  • Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mix thoroughly.
  • Spoon batter into liners (about three tbsp of batter per cup). If desired, sprinkle sugar on top of each muffin for aesthetic appeal.
  • Bake at 400 degrees for 18-20 minutes or until muffins spring back slightly when touched and a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out clean.
  • Remove from oven and let cool on a wire rack.
