Hello September! Are you as ready for Autumn to get here as much as I am? 🍂🍁 I don’t know about you, but I truly love this time of year. I love the crisp cool air, the smells of cinnamon apple, pumpkins, and all things FALL. Although times are still strange, a change of season is giving me something to look forward to, and these Apple Cinnamon Oat Muffins are perfect for the occasion!

These muffins turned out to be one of my favorite muffin recipes to date (shh don’t tell the others). They taste like an apple cinnamon coffee cake and I am not mad about that one bit. They are perfect to enjoy with a cup of coffee or tea, and as snack for the little ones.

Let us not forget to mention that they are refined-sugar free, dairy-free and gluten-free and made with healthy ingredients you can feel good about indulging in.

The ingredients you will need to make these muffins are:

  • refined coconut oil, melted and cooled 
  • pure maple syrup or raw honey
  • unsweetened apple sauce 
  • pasture-raised eggs 
  • pure vanilla extract 
  • shredded organic red apple
  • organic gluten-free oat flour 
  • baking powder (aluminum Free) 
  • baking soda 
  • cinnamon 
  • nutmeg 
  • pink salt 
  • organic rolled oats 
  • coconut sugar
