Units Scale


1 1/2 cup oat flour (or 1:1 all purpose gluten-free flour)
1 cup almond flour
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 heaping cup applesauce
1/4 cup avocado oil
1/3 cup maple syrup
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla


12 tbsp melted butter or avocado oil
1 tsp cinnamon
3 tbsp coconut sugar and/or golden monk fruit (I did a combo of both)


Preheat the oven to 400℉. Mix the oat flour, almond flour, baking soda, spices and salt in a bowl.

In a separate bowl, combine the eggs, maple syrup, oil, applesauce and vanilla. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and mix until just combined.

Place the batter into an oiled or lined muffin tin and place in the oven for 5 minutes. After the first 5 minutes, turn the oven down to 350℉ and continue to bake for 15 minutes or until a toothpick comes out mostly clean. Let cool for 5-10 minutes.

Mix the cinnamon and sugar in a small bowl. Brush the top of the muffins with butter or oil and immediately roll the top of the muffins in the cinnamon sugar mixture. Enjoy!
