What ingredients will I need to make these oat flour muffins?

These double chocolate muffins require just a couple simple ingredients. They are:

  • oat flour (I use homemade)
  • flax eggs or regular eggs
  • salt
  • baking powder/baking soda
  • cocoa powder
  • pure maple syrup (or honey)
  • pure vanilla extract
  • water (or dairy free milk)
  • plain yogurt (I use dairy free)
  • olive or avocado oil (or coconut oil, melted)
  • unsweetened applesauce
  • chocolate chips (I use dairy free and refined sugar free)
What kind of dairy free yogurt did you use?

I used Forager Project unsweetened cashew milk dairy free yogurt. I love this yogurt because there are only a couple simple ingredients used!

Where can I find dairy free chocolate chips?
  • Dairy Free: If you’re looking for dairy free chocolate chips, I would recommend Enjoy Life Foods dairy free chocolate chips. They have dark, semi-sweet, and white dairy free chocolate chips!

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 and should work okay.

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!

Servings 12
Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 25 minutes
Total Time 45 minutes


  • 2 cups oat flour (I use homemade)
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 eggs (flax eggs or regular eggs)

  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/3 cup water (or dairy free milk)
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup pure maple syrup (or honey)
  • 1/4 cup olive or avocado oil (or coconut oil, melted)


  • 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 well combined.
  • Divide the batter evenly between the prepared muffin cups. Bake the muffins at 350°F for 25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

    Wow! I was skeptical at first because it seemed like a wild combination between applesauce, yogurt (I used Greek), and maple syrup but the consistency is wonderful! Moist but not soggy and just right amount of sweet! I did have to add a bit more flour because the batter was runny and used regular bread flour for that just because I needed to use the last little bit. 10/10 will be making again!
