  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup white whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 cup melted coconut oil cooled slightly
  • 2/3 cup light brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cup cooked plain oatmeal see note
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 cup finely chopped apple I used a Pink Lady and I left the skin on

Walnut Oat Streusel

  • 2 tablespoons all purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons old fashioned oats
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons cold unsalted butter cut into small pieces


  • Muffins - Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease a 12 count muffin tin and set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, combine flours, salt, cinnamon and baking powder.
  • In a large bowl, whisk coconut oil, brown sugar, eggs, oatmeal and applesauce. Add the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Stir in chopped apple.
  • Divide the batter between 12 muffin cups.
  • Streusel - In a separate bowl, combine flour, oats, brown sugar, walnuts and cinnamon. Add the butter. Using your fingers, work the butter into the dry ingredients until it resembles wet sand and clumps together when you press it together. Sprinkle the streusel over the batter in the 12 muffin cups.
  • Bake for 13-15 minutes until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.


Make sure that your oatmeal is creamy. If it has been refrigerated and firmed up, whisk in a splash of water to make it creamy again.
