Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups flour all-purpose, whole wheat, whole grain spelt will all work. I used whole grain spelt.
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs room temperature
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup honey would work
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil melted
  • 1 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 1/2 cups diced apple about 1 medium apple*
  • For the oat streusel topping:
  • 1 cup oats
  • 1 tablespoon flour any type works
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar or coconut sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon melted coconut oil

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line muffin pans with paper liners or coat with cooking spray. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together flour, cinnamon, baking powder and salt.
  • Create a well with flour and add eggs, maple syrup, coconut oil and applesauce. Stir until flour disappears. Do not over stir. Gently fold in the diced apples. Set aside.
  • In a small bowl, combine oats, flour, sugar, and cinnamon. Mix in coconut oil.
  • Fill 12 muffin cups evenly and almost full. Sprinkle each muffin with oat streusel topping. Slightly press streusel into batter. Bake for about 20 minutes or until a toothpick stuck in the middle comes out clean. Let cool for 5 minutes. Enjoy!
