Servings: 12 muffins 1x


  • Nonstick cooking spray and/or 12 paper muffin liners
  • ¼ cup (½ stick) unsalted butter, melted (may substitute avocado oil)
  • ⅓ cup pure maple syrup
  • ½ cup unsweetened applesauce

  4. Divide the batter among the prepared muffin cups using a scant ⅓ cup batter in each one. If desired, top each much with a couple of blueberries and a sprinkle of oats. 
  5. Bake for 21-23 minutes until the muffin centers are slightly firm to the touch. 
  6. Remove the muffin tin from the oven and allow the muffins to cool for 5 minutes in the pan before removing them and placing them on wire racks to cool completely. 
  7. Store leftover muffins in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. When ready to enjoy, reheat in the microwave for 15-30 seconds. You can also store them in the freezer for up to 3 months.
