Gluten-Free Oatmeal Spice MuffinsAnyone will love these muffins, whether you are on a gluten-free diet or not! I made these healthier by using Truvia brown sugar blend and using water instead of butter on the tops of the muffins.


Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 14-18 minutes

Total Time: 24-28 minutes

Yield: 16 muffins

Source: Facebook group


  • 3 1/2 cup oats
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup pecans, chopped (I didn't use)
  • 3/4 cup applesauce (I was a little short on applesauce, so I added 1/2 of a small apple, chopped)
  • 1/2 cup sugar (1/4 cup Truvia brown sugar blend)
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 Tbsp finely shredded orange peel (can use lemon instead)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 1/2 Tbsp butter, melted (I omitted this and used water instead)
  • 1/3 cup sugar, mixed with 3/4 tsp. cinnamon (1/6 cup Truvia brown sugar blend)
