  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a miniature muffin tin.
  2. Combine oats, oat flour, sesame seeds, cornstarch, quinoa, coconut, flax meal, chia seeds, walnuts, raisins, sunflower seeds, white chocolate chips, cinnamon, and salt in a large bowl.
  3. Whisk honey, applesauce, coconut oil, egg, and vanilla extract together in a separate bowl; stir into oats mixture. Scoop mixture into the prepared muffin tin, pressing gently to fit into each muffin cup.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until cooked through and lightly browned, 15 to 20 minutes.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • Be sure the oats are gluten-free if you are sensitive to gluten.
  • Replace raisins with any dried fruit, such as dried cranberries or mangoes.
  • If you don't have a mini muffin pan, simply use a tablespoon to scoop out each portion and shape it into a ball before placing it on a baking sheet.
  • Partner Tip
  • Reynolds® Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.
