  • cup coconut oil melted
  • 2 large eggs
  • cup unsweetened applesauce
  • cup pure maple syrup
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 ½ cup oat flour*
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries


  • Heat the oven to 350F.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the coconut oil, eggs, applesauce, maple syrup, and vanilla extract.
  • Add the oat flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon. Stir until well incorporated.
  • Pour in the blueberries and gently stir until just combined, being careful not to break them up into the batter.
  • Spoon 1 heaping tablespoon of the batter into a greased mini muffin tin. Top with three blueberries, then continue filling two muffin pans with the batter.
  • Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until the edges begin to pull away from the sides and a toothpick comes out clean.
  • Allow to cool in the pan for 5 minutes, then cool the rest of the way on a cooling rack.


*Make your own oat flour for this recipe by placing 2 cups whole rolled oats in a blender and blending until a coarse flour forms. You can purchase pre-made oat flour at many grocery stores and natural food markets or online.
**Make sure your oats are labeled gluten-free if that's important to you.
Add a bit more maple syrup if you prefer a sweeter muffin.
