I love me some blender muffins and I’m so excited to share this super healthy apple cinnamon blender muffin recipe with you today. It is AWESOME! And it’s super-duper easy because the blender does all of the work for you. This recipe is made without traditional flour and is instead made with whole grain oats that you process in your blender until they make an oat flour. A little bit of applesauce, some maple syrup, and a few other ingredients really make these muffins simple and healthy. Just toss it all in the blender and let it go. Bake for 15 minutes and you’re done.

Because this recipe is so simple, it is the perfect recipe to make with your little kitchen helpers. They can help measure and dump things into the blender and then push the buttons as needed (my kids love helping use my blender!). And before you know it, you’ll have super healthy apple cinnamon muffins that make a great snack, breakfast on the go, or side to your favorite soup or chili.

We love these muffins and know you will too.

Tips and Tricks for Making Healthy Apple Cinnamon Muffins

  • One more reason to love your blender! I have a refurbished Blendtec and have loved it for almost 4 years now.
  • No applesauce? No worry! If you have a good blender, you can just throw in about 8 ounces of apple (cored) and blend them up before you blend up the oats. I did that a few times and it worked great. I left the skins on, too.
  • These aren’t super sweet muffins (and I’m ok with that). If you want a sweeter muffin, you can use vanilla Greek yogurt or add an additional 1/4 to 1/2 cup or brown sugar.
  • You can change up the flavor a bit by subbing the cinnamon for apple pie spice. Delicious!
  • These muffins freeze great, just FYI. You can use them for healthy breakfasts, easy snacks, or as a side to your favorite healthy lentil chili, Healthy Alphabet Soup (healthy, meatless 30-minute meal), or Tortellini Soup with Spinach (also a healthy, meatless 30-minute meal).

        Thank you! Excited to try them:).
        P.S. I made the pumpkin energy oatmeal bites this morning and they were a huge hit with my daughters…a great quick breakfast with protein! Thank you for sharing!

    I followed accordingly but after baking for 20 min++ the muffins still weren’t cooked.They were very wet.pls tell me what went wrong

  2. Audrey

    I only had nonfat Greek yogurt but added in a heaping tablespoon of gingerbread almond butter and some fresh diced apple chunks-DELISH. And so easy to freeze!

  3. Avery

    Yummm! These are a favourite at my house. I brought them to a bake sale once they were a hit. I made a cinnamon glaze to go on them as well.

  4. Katie

    I have never posted a comment about a recipe before. But I have to say these are so so so easy, yummy (for me and my toddler) and will forever be in my vault of recipes. I did use vanilla Greek yogurt but that is the only change I did. I’m constantly looking for healthy, easy, and tasty muffin recipes and this checked all the boxes.

      It’ll be about half the time. You’ll want to check them though of course. When the muffin tops springs back when lightly touched, you know they are done (if they aren’t, it’ll leave an indent on the top!). Happy baking Lindsay!
