  • In a large mixing bowl, mix together dry ingredients (oats, flours, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon and salt). Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and add the eggs, oil and water. Mix until a batter forms (just until the flour is incorporated), being careful not to over mix.

  • Let cool in a muffin tin about 10 minutes and then move to a cooling rack to cool completely.


If the batter seems too thick, you can add water or almond milk a few tablespoons at a time until the batter loosens up.
These muffins freeze really well, keep in the freezer up to 3 months in an airtight container.  When you are ready to eat, either defrost on the counter or microwave in a paper towel 15-20 seconds.
