Serves: 8
Ingredients
  • 2 cups quick cooking oats
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup unsweetened apple sauce
  • ¼ cup coconut oil
  • ¼ cup almond milk or 2% milk
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ pound strawberries
Instructions
  1. Rinse and core the strawberries. Roughly chop the strawberries. You should have about 1½ cups of chopped strawberries. Place in a small bowl.
  2. Position a rack in the middle of the oven and preheat oven to 400°F. Prepare a 12-well muffin tin by coating with cooking spray or lining with paper muffin cups.
  3. Whisk together in a medium bowl, oats, the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon.
  4. Add the egg, apple sauce, coconut oil, milk, brown sugar, and vanilla extract to another bowl. Stir until just incorporated.
  5. Use a wooden spoon to gently stir the flour mixture into the egg mixture. Stir until just incorporated and the flour is moistened. Do not over-mix! Or your muffins will end up rubbery. The batter should be rather lumpy, not smooth.
  6. Gently fold in the strawberries.
  7. Spoon the batter evenly into the muffin tin wells or cups. Bake until the tops are browned and the muffin bounces back when you gently press on the top with your finger tips, about 20 minutes. A bamboo or metal skewer inserted into the center should come out clean. Let cool for a couple minutes in the muffin tin before removing to serve.
  8. Makes 8 large muffins
