Instructions Checklist

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

Wonderful substitute for store-bought health bars! I cut the honey to 3/4 cup and added the equivalent 1/4 cup of stevia. Also bumped up the vanilla to a tablespoon. These freeze well. Read More

These were so good. I wasn't sure what to expect but these little mini muffins came out moist and flavorful. I made half a batch (which made exactly 24) but still used a whole egg. I made my own oat flour by putting quick outs in the blender. I didn't have white chips so I used cinnamon chips and they worked fine. Mine took exactly 15 minutes. I think I've eaten 4 of these already and my 3 year-old has had a couple. I will make them again. Thanks for a nice recipe. Read More

These were tasty bites. They were moist sweet and had a nutty flavor. I followed what one of the other reviewers did and made 1/2 recipe used the whole egg and still got 24. I used mini paper liners and they worked great. I made oat flour in my Vitamix. I then added the rest of the dry ingredients and processed it all well. I did not want large pieces of nuts or the other items. My only subtitute was 5 grain blend for the quinoa amount. I baked them for 21 minutes and noticed they do remain the same size as they went in. So it is okay to fill them well. Ty Read More

I've been trying a few healthy alternatives to store bought granola / energy bars lately and I really liked these! I made half a recipe and the amount of batter was spot on - 24 mini muffins. I baked mine for exactly 15 minutes. I'm sure my son is going to gobble these up when he gets home from school. Read More

Lots of texture. I replaced the white chocolate with finely chopped dates. My grandkids loved them. Read More
