Oatmeal Raisin Muffins (Gluten-free)

These muffins have been in my family for quite a few years now and are a favorite to all. They are such a delightful little treat for all my fellow gluten-free people out there, but delicious for everyone! I will say that they aren’t as good as the muffins you’ll buy in the store but they are a healthy alternative without all the added sugar- that are still super tasty and I’m so exited to share them with you!

What you’ll need: 

1/3 cup olive oil

1 cup apple sauce

1/2 cup honey

In seperate bowl:

1 1/2 cup chopped oats (I use a food processor for this)

1 cup whole oats

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp baking powder

1 tsp salt

1 tsp cinnamon

3/4 cup raisins (can add more or less to preference)

(And baking spray for your pan)

Making the muffins:

First combine all the wet ingredients in a bowl (olive oil, apple sauce, and honey)Processed with VSCO with m5 preset

Next measure out your oats and chop them in a food processor. When finished they should have a similar consistency to oat flour. I usually grind mine for around a minute.

Dump the ground oats into a separate  bowl, along with the whole oats and baking soda.

Next you can add the baking powder and salt to the same bowl.

Mix dry ingredients then combine your wet ingredients and mix well. I usually just use a spoon with this recipe rather than a blender as I think it is easy enough to mix by hand. But using a blender will work totally fine if you wish to do so!

Next you’ll need to grease your muffin pan for easy removal.

Once your pan is greased you can add your mix to pan and cook at 350 for 25 minutes. You don’t need to worry about putting too much mix into the muffin cups and these muffins hardly rise.

When muffines are done allow 5-10 minutes to cool before you enjoy!

I so hope you all enjoy these! They are always gone within a day or two at our house. Even Eden adores them! They’re such a nice little snack if you’re wanting something small. If you’re looking for a little extra sweetness, adding a little honey on the top is super yummy! They’re also  really tasty if you zap them in the microwave for a few seconds if you prefer them warm- I think they are delicious either way😊

 

Hope you enjoy!

Wife to a wonderful husband and mother to a beautiful daughter. I've had a deep love for photography since I was girl but it wasn't until I had my daughter, Eden, that that love truly blossomed. She has become my little muse and the subject of most of my pictures. I love learning and discovering new things with her by my side. I wanted a place to share pictures, outfits, experiences of motherhood, decorating ideas, adventures, recipes, and my advice- thus I created this blog to share little pieces of myself and my life with you.
