Oatmeal Muffins - Gluten Free & Vegan
My good friend had her birthday today.  I thought I would surprise her with some fresh muffins to start off her day with a little love and recognition Tessa style.  I was up WAY too early to accomplish this…..but my loved ones don’t call me Rambo for no reason….very moist and delicious!  Next time I will experiment with less fat…..

Yield – 1 dozen regular muffins.  Using half stevia, each muffin has 223 calories, 12.2 g fat, 23.4 g carbs, 3.4 g fiber, 1.8 g sugar, 3.7 g protein.

Serves: 12
  • Dry:
  • ½ cup Gluten Free Oat Flour

  5. Add in raisins and cinnamon if desired.
  6. Pour batter into greased muffin tin,
  7. Bake for 18-20 minutes.

When her third child was born with severe food allergies, Tessa took to the kitchen to figure out how to feed her family well. Always up for a culinary challenge, their journey has taken many twists and turns! Lots of Paleo, and lots of top 8 free. Good food for families, that's what she's about!

    I set out to make these in my Sat. morning foggy state and quickly realized after having part of the ingredients together that I didn't have sorghum flour or applesauce! I improvised by substituting the sorghum with 1/8c. more oat flour and 1/8 c. more tapioca. For the applesauce, I had some ripe pears on hand that I peeled and microwaved for 2 min. before throwing in to the mixer. The muffins turned out fabulous!!! Also- I threw in huckleberries for 1/2 the batch and choc. chips for the other 1/2…both awesome. :)

    I’ve been meaning to experiment with gluten free recipes for ages, but still haven’t gotten around to it yet. This recipe seems like a great starting point though. Thanks so much for sharing with Hearth and Soul!

    Does that say 4 cups applesauce or 1/4 cup applesauce? It’s cut off on my phone. :)

  4. I’m working my way (and my mind) into going wheat free – totally pinning this for inspiration! thank you for linking with kids in the kitchen – keep ’em coming please!!! (I have RA and must get off wheat and sugar)

  5. Thank you for your submission on Nourishing Treasures’ Make Your Own! Monday link-up.

  6. Your muffins look amazing! I love baking with oat flour; it is so tasty!

  7. Thanks for this great basic recipe. From here I’m sure lots of flavor combinations and fruits can be added. I love these types of recipes. Thanks for sharing it with us at Whole Food Wednesdays.

  8. I made these this morning and they were delicious! I used teff, and used baking soda/cream of tartar as a baking powder substitute.
