Help, I don’t have applesauce and/or yogurt on hand!
If you don’t have applesauce or yogurt on hand, you can try using one of these substitutes for either one: mashed banana, pumpkin puree, or nut butter. Or you can simply use more applesauce or yogurt if you have one, but not the other. I haven’t made this recipe with any of those substitutes, but those are all common substitutes for applesauce and yogurt.
How do I make homemade oat flour?
To make homemade oat flour simply blend gluten free quick, old fashioned, or rolled oats in a high speed blender (or process them in a food processor). Blend/process until a flour consistency is reached. Check out this video if you want to see how I make my own oat flour!

- 2 cups oat flour
- 1/4 cup cocoa powder
- 1 tsp baking powder

- 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips (I use dairy free)

- Preheat the oven to 350°F and line a 12 cup muffin tin with cupcake liners. Gently spray the cupcake wrappers with cooking spray. If you don't want to use cupcake liners, make sure to spray the muffin cups well with cooking spray.
- While the oven is preheating, whisk together the dry ingredients in a large bowl. Once mixed, add in the wet ingredients one at a time and mix everything together until fully combined.
