Apple & Honey Oat Muffins

Apples & Honey are symbols of the Jewish New Year.  Apple season here in New England also marks the beginning of the new school year; all symbols of new beginnings, setting intentions, goals and wishes for a sweet and fruitful future ~ I’ll bake to that!!

Apple & Honey Oat Muffins




LINE muffin tin with muffin papers or a grease tray.


GENTLY heat coconut oil | butter, + honey together to melt.  WHISK in a bowl with eggs, vanilla, + vinegar.


GRATE apple on a plate and measure out 1½ cups – it is about 2 medium apples, but it depends on the size of the apples you have.   


STIR in measured grated apple mixing well.

**DIY HOMEMADE OAT FLOUR; blitz 2 cups rolled oats until it forms a fine flour in a blender or food processor 45 sec-1 min.  Test by rubbing your fingers to ensure you have created a fine flour; if not, blend some more.


RICE FLOUR | TAPIOCA FLOUR help give the apple & oats in this heart-healthy gluten-free recipe a lift.  I haven’t tested it, but I imagine you could swap it for all-purpose wheat flour.


VINEGAR is acidic = used here to help activate the baking powder, making a lighter textured muffin.


CHIA SEEDS = adds a slight texture that I like + good digestive cleansing fibre – you can skip the chia.


ADD NUTS & SEEDS –  I like this recipe with pumpkin or sunflower seeds, flaked almonds or walnuts.


ADD DRIED FRUIT – currants, cranberries,and raisins roughly chopped.
