  • 1 Tbsp ground flax seed
  • 3 Tbsp warm water
  • 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup succanat or other natural sugar
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 cup unsweetened applesauce (Since we have so many apples, I threw two cored apples, with skins, in my vitamix and processed while tamping on 5 for a bit until the consistency of applesauce)
  • 1 Tbsp coconut oil, melted
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 medium apple, cored and diced

Combine ground flax and water in a small bowl and set aside.

Prepare a cupcake pan as you prefer.  Preheat oven to 375.

Combine flour, oats, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg in a mixing bowl and mix well.

Add applesauce, melted coconut oil, vanilla and flax-water mixture.  Stir until everything is combined.  Add diced apple and stir until just combined.

Fill muffins about 1/2 to 2/3 full.  Bake for 14 – 18 minutes or until done (slightly browned and toothpick comes out clean).  Enjoy!!
