These are a little different but after the first initial bite they grow on you!  My family LOVES THEM!


  • 1 cup applesauce
  • 1 teaspoon canola oil
  • 1/2 cup turbinado sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
  • 3/4 cup oat flour  (I have used regular flour in the past and they turned out just fine as well)
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (I used sea salt)
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place 8 paper liners in muffin tin; coat with cooking spray.
2. Combine applesauce and next 4 ingredients. In a separate bowl, whisk together the next 6 ingredients. Add oat mixture to applesauce mixture; stir until blended. Stir in chocolate chips.
3. Spoon batter into muffin cups. Bake for 20-22 minutes, rotating the pan a half-turn after 10 minutes. Muffins are done when tops are firm to the touch.
