These applesauce oatmeal muffins are the perfect breakfast muffins and have no refined sugar, so you can feel better about feeding them to your little ones.
It looks like I’m on an every other week posting schedule for my muffin series. Such is life I suppose.
Today’s muffin is semi-healthy, with no refined white sugar and using whole wheat flour. These applesauce oatmeal muffins aren’t too sweet and really are a great breakfast muffin. They are a little drier than my other muffins, and I think that helps them keep really well in an air tight container.
My daughter isn’t a big oatmeal fan. Have I told you that yet? Well she isn’t. Everytime I use oats in a recipe, she balks and tells me she’s not going to like it.
Then she forgets I used oats, eats the baked good and raves about it. Well, most of the time. And that was the case with this applesauce oatmeal muffin. She even asked for a second! I felt like giving myself a pat on the back after that. And maybe I did. Maybe….
Applesauce Oatmeal Muffins
- 1 1/2 cups oats
- 1 1/4 cups whole wheat flour
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup applesauce natural
- 1/2 cup milk I use almond milk, but 1% or 2% would work fine
- 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 egg white
- 1 tablespoon melted butter
- 1/4 cup oats
- 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 tablespoon brown sugar
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line muffin tin with cupcake liners and lightly spray.
- In a large bowl, combine oats, flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
- In a medium bowl beat applesauce, milk, oil, vanilla and egg white until thoroughly combined.
- Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix until the dry ingredients are just coated.
- Fill muffin liners 3/4 full.
- For the topping, combine all ingredients into small bowl and sprinkle over each muffin.
- Bake 15 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean.
- Let cool in pan 5 minutes, then remove to wire rack to cool completely.
I hope you enjoy these as much as we have.
I am obsessed with muffins 🙂 This one looks amazing!
Oooh, you’re back to publishing your muffin recipes. This one sounds so good. I’ve been saving these and I need to start converting them to muffins made without refined sugars… then I can report back and tell you what they’re like.
I find it tricky converting from a refined sugar to a liquid substitute – it impacts the consistency but I’ll stick to it.
Thanks for sharing!
SO MANY GREAT MUFFINS. One day I’ll find time to make them all. Ha!
Oh, these sound yummy! And I love how they don’t have a ton of sugar in them. Definitely pinning to try hopefully soon!
I’m loving this recipe card thing you have! Is it a plugin or how did you install it in your post? Give me some deets, because I love it!
Hi Tiffany, these look tasty. Apple, oats and cinnamon what better combination? Could I use homemade apple sauce as opposed to shop bought?
And how long do muffins keep and are they freezable?
These sound great! I love that they are made with ingredients I always have on hand. I definitely want to try them!
Another delicious recipe! I made your chicken chili again this weekend, we’re eating it throughout our week 😉

That looks amazing! I pinned the recipe for later. Oatmeal is my weakness.
These sound amazing! What kind of oats do you use – quick or steel cut? Looking forward to trying these muffins! -Jess
These look delicious! I love that they have no white sugar, something I really need to avoid. I’ll definitely have to try these. Pinned :)!
I love your muffin series. We’re set to try your strawberry muffins next week. This might come as a close second to that. My daughter loves apples and oatmeal, so this is perfect! Thanks for sharing Tiffany! Keep these recipes coming!
Thanks Maria! I hope you like the strawberry muffins! They are my favorite right out of the oven muffins.
Glad you’re liking this series! It means a lot to me!
