Muffins with Oats and Apple

Now that we have a toddler who is in preschool a few times per week we are constantly looking for recipes that we can also use as lunch box items for him. He loves these apple muffins and often helps us make them. They are great for a snack, dessert or lunch box 🙂
Feel free to let your inspiration guide you to change up the ingredients to your liking.


80g (1/2 cup) flour
70g (1/2 cup) rye flour
110 (1 cup) large oats
30g (1/4 cup) flax, ground
1 teaspoon vanilla sugar or vanilla essence
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ginger
40g (1/4 cup) sunflower seeds or 40g hemp hearts
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 egg
450g (1 3/4 cup) apple sauce
70g (1/2 cup) raisins
1 apple peeled & grated (or 3 carrots)


Heat up the oven to 180 C (350 F).
Place 12 large muffin parchment papers in a muffin tin, or grease the tin.
Mix all dry ingredients in a bowl.
Take the egg and beat it then add the apple sauce.
Add in raisins and grated apple (or carrots) into the wet mixture.

Pour the applesauce mixture over the dry ingredients and mix till just combined.

Scoop into the muffin tin.
Bake on the middle shelf for about 20-25 minutes.
To check if they are ready, place a toothpick in one of the muffins and pull out. If it comes out clean, the muffins are ready. These muffins are pretty moist when baked so let them cool for 10 minutes in the muffin tin before taking them out to cool completely.
