What you need to make these muffins
- Apples (I used Fuji)

- Ground flaxseed
- Unsweetened apple sauce
- Unsweetened plant-based milk (I used soymilk)
- Simple Homemade Date Syrup
- Fresh ginger root
- Ground cloves or cardamom (optional)
How to prepare apple cinnamon muffins
Preheat the oven to 350 F (175 C).
Grind ½ cup rolled oats in a mini blender and add to a large mixing bowl with remaining oats, ground flaxseeds, cinnamon, and a pinch of salt. If using the optional ground cloves or cardamom, be sure to add that as well. Combine these dry ingredients with a whisk or large spoon.
Add remaining ingredients and stir until well combined.
Because this recipe is oil-free, we recommend using a silicone muffin pan as the preferred nonstick option. If you don't have one, consider using a parchment-lined 8x8 or 9x9 round or square baking pan. While they won't be muffins, you can easily make these into delicious healthy breakfast oat bars.
Carefully spoon the muffin mixture into a silicone (nonstick) muffin tin or 8x8 or 9x9 square parchment-lined baking pan.
Bake at 350 F (175 C) for 35 to 40 minutes.
This recipe makes 12 standard-size muffins or 4 servings of 3 muffins. After these apple cinnamon oat muffins have cooled to room temperature, enjoy with a cup of tea or a golden milk latte.
You can store leftovers in a covered container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days or in the freezer for up to 4 months. To reheat from frozen, microwave uncovered at reduced power for 90 seconds. If still cold, microwave at full power for 30 seconds.
