  • Preheat oven to 350 and prepared greased or lined muffin tin

Substitutions for healthy apple muffin recipes:
  • Oats - You can not substitute steel cut oats for this recipe, it won't work! You could substitute quick cook oats if needed.
  • Honey- you can swap honey for maple syrup
  • Milk - you can use any type of milk in the recipe - nondairy, or dairy will work.
  • Oil - You can use olive oil or avocado oil.
  • Gluten free- Make sure to use certified gluten free oats
  • Egg free- I have not tried making these muffins egg free. I think subbing flax eggs would work, but I'm not sure.
