Easy Applesauce Oatmeal Muffins are a tasty, healthy on-the-go breakfast! Made with oats, applesauce, peanut butter, maple syrup and cinnamon. Make a batch for busy mornings!


Units Scale
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 cup milk of choice (I used unsweetened vanilla almond)
  • 1/4 cup natural salted peanut butter (or almond butter)
  • 1/3 cup pure maple syrup or honey
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 1/2 cups old fashioned oats
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp fine sea salt (use 1/2 tsp if peanut butter is not salted)
  • 1 medium apple, diced small


  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Spray muffin tin with cooking spray.
  2. In a medium mixing bowl, add applesauce, almond milk, peanut butter, maple syrup, egg, and vanilla extract and stir until well mixed.
  3. Add oats, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. Stir until combined, being careful not to over-mix. Fold in diced apple.
  4. Spoon mixture evenly into muffin tin, filling the tins to the very top. Bake for 25-27 minutes, or until a knife comes out clean. Let cups cool for at least 15 minutes before carefully transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
