Last weekend was the first time that I had converted my old Apple Oatmeal Muffin recipe to gluten free. I’m happy to say it only took one try!
These muffins start with homemade applesauce that still has some small chunks of apple in it. I used Granny Smith apples with just a little bit of cinnamon and brown sugar. I didn’t want the applesauce to be too sweet.
I used Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free Oatmeal, plus my usual flaxseed meal, almond meal and GF Flour Mix. There is a little bit of apple juice in these muffins just to add a little more apple flavor.
If you do not have issues with gluten, you can just replace the GF Flour Mix with regular flour- that’s the only change.
This recipe makes 36 mini muffins, which is the size that I always make for all of my muffins. I usually bake 2 or 3 kinds of muffins at once, and when you make the mini size you don’t have to feel guilty for having a couple at a time!
I’m sure this recipe would be the right amount for 12 regular size muffins if you would rather make that size.
Last weekend I made these muffins, plus Zucchini which I’ve already posted and also Banana Chocolate Chip which have a little bit of almond butter in them. The 2 neighbor families that I gave samples of all of these muffins to liked the Apple ones the best! I liked them a lot too.
