Apple Spice Muffins


There’s something about a warm muffin with a pat of fresh butter and a cup of hot tea in the morning. It’s what greets me most mornings as I roll out of bed before the sun rises, searching for something to soothe my dry throat from the allergies that come along with Spring.

For our family, these muffins are the perfect breakfast and snack, and usually last all of 24 hours.

They have a slight spice from cinnamon and all spice and the familiar sweetness of gala apples. I love the chunks of apple bites that keep the muffins moist but add a crunch as well. My 1-year-old gobbles them up!


Apple Spice Muffins

Yield: 12 muffins


  • 2 cups gluten free oat flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3/4 cinnamon
  • 1/4 all spice
  • 1/4 baking soda
  • 1/8 salt
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened apple sauce
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 gala apple, peeled and chopped into small pieces


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Mix the dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, cinnamon, all spice, baking soda and salt) in a small bowl.
  3. In a stand mixer with the paddle attachment, combine wet ingredients (applesauce, brown sugar, eggs and vanilla). If you don't have a stand mixer, a whisk will work fine. Mix until smooth.
  4. Slowly pour dry ingredients into the wet little by little, mixing as you go.
  5. Scrape down the sides of the bowl with a rubber spatula to incorporate any flour that may have pushed up on the sides.
  6. Peel and chop apple into small pieces. Fold apple pieces into the batter.
  7. Lightly spray muffin tin with cooking spray and fill tins 3/4 of the way full with batter.
  8. Bake for 20 minutes.
