Have you noticed my kids love muffins? Most kids do! I love that they are so easy to grab, filling and healthy. This apple one is a tasty way to use up all your mushy apples 🙂


  • 1 1/2 cups Whole Wheat Flour
  • 1/4 cup Ground Flaxseed/flaxseed Meal
  • 1 cup Regular Oats
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 2 teaspoons Baking Powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup Walnuts, Roughly Chopped
  • 1/2 cup Raisins
  • 1 cup Buttermilk (or milk with 1 tsp vinegar)
  • 1 whole Egg
  • 1 whole Banana, Peeled And Mashed
  • 1/2 cup Applesauce
  • 1/4 cup Molasses (go easy on this if you don’t like molasses!)
  • 1 apple, chopped


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F.
  2. Thoroughly grease a muffin pan (makes 12-18).
  3. In a large bowl, combine flour, flaxseed meal, oats, coconut sugar, salt, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, walnuts, and raisins. Stir together until combined.
  4. In a separate bowl, mix together the buttermilk, egg, banana, applesauce and molasses. Stir in apple cubes.
  5. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, stirring until it just barely comes together. Batter should be wet and sticky; (if needed, splash in a couple extra tablespoons of buttermilk.)
  6. Scoop 1/4 cup helpings into the muffin cups and bake for 16-18 minutes, or until deep golden brown.

I like putting these in freezer bags so we always have some on hand!
