Healthy Apple Cinnamon Muffins (made in the blender!)

Healthy Apple Cinnamon Muffins that are made in the blender! Made with whole grain oats, applesauce, maple syrup, and other wholesome ingredients.

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).
