Apple cinnamon oatmeal muffins recipe

This apple cinnamon oatmeal muffins recipe is super basic — and dairy-free! However, if you don't have almond milk you can use regular milk (same measurement). Just make sure you soak your steel-cut oats a day in advance: pour enough boiling water over the oats to fully cover them and then store them in the refigerator overnight (drain before using in this recipe).

  • 1 cup flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon mace
  • 1 cup  steel-cut oats, soaked in water overnight
  • ¼ cup white sugar
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1 cup peeled and chopped apple


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

Sift the first 5 ingredients together. Add in the oats and sugar. Separately whisk the egg into the almond milk and then stir into the flour and oats mixture.

Stir in the apple. Pour into greased or lined muffin tins, leaving about ¼-inch at the top.

Bake for 20 minutes. Serve.

Apple Shopping Tip

When buying apples, they should be firm, free of bruises, and heavy for their size.

Apple Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
