  • 1 1/4 cups Rolled Oats
  • 3/4 cup Sunflower Seed Kernels
  • 1/2 cup Organic Light Spelt Flour
  • 1 teaspoon Freshly Ground Cardamom
  • 1 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon Double Acting Baking Powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon Sea Sal
  • Wet Ingredients:
  • 3 Large Eggs
  • 1/3 cup Coconut Oil
  • 3/4 cup Coconut Milk
  • 1/3 cup Sugar-Free Natural Applesauce
  • 5 tablespoon Pure Honey
  • 1 teaspoon Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla Paste
  • 1 Apple, grated
  • Topping: 1 Medium Apple, cored, halved and sliced thinly with a mandolin & Handful of Frozen Blueberries (approximately 3-4 each muffin)
  • coconut oil, as needed


  • Step 1

    Preheat the oven to 400˚ F. Grease or line a 12- cup muffin pan with muffin liners. Set aside.

  • Step 2

    Using a food processor, blitz all of the dry ingredients together on high speed until thoroughly mixed and the rolled oats are of a coarse grind. Set the dry mix aside in a mixing bowl.

  • Step 3

    Add all the wet ingredients except for the grated apple into the food processor and blitz until well combined.

  • Step 4

    Form a well in the dry ingredients, add the wet ingredients, grated apples and fold through until just combined. Scoop batter into the muffin pan and divide equally.

  • Step 5

    For the topping, lightly brush the sides of the thinly sliced apples with coconut oil and gently push 2-3 slices into the batter. Do the same with the handful of frozen blueberries, pushing 3-4 gently into the batter.

  • Step 6

    Bake in the oven between 20-25 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the center of a muffin emerges clean.

  • Step 7

    Let cool on a cooling rack. Enjoy!
