Applesauce Cinnamon Oat Muffins Recipe

I have shared my favorite muffin recipes with you in previous posts – Banana Oat Mini Muffins, Breakfast Muffins and Chocolate Mini Muffins. Now, I am excited to share these Applesauce Cinnamon Oat Muffins.


This Applesauce muffin is delicious and also happens to be low fat. (Using the Weight Watchers Recipe Builder, one muffin is 5 Points Plus.) I usually bake mini muffins but I like to make these regular sized.

These Applesauce Cinnamon Oat Muffins are a hit with my family. They are great to have for breakfast or a snack.


Applesauce Cinnamon Oat Muffins recipe

(Recipe from


  • 3 cups quick cooking oats
  • 2-1/2 cups all-purpose  flour
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1-1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1-1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 cup fat-free milk
  • 6 tablespoons canola oil
  • 2  egg whites

For topping:

  • 1/2 cup quick-cooking oats
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons butter,  melted

Stir together the oats, flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt together in a large mixing bowl.

In a separate bowl, mix together applesauce, milk, canola oil and egg whites.

Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mix until moistened. Do not overmix.

Make topping by combining oats, brown sugar, cinnamon and melted butter together.

Coat muffin pans with spray. I like to use Pam Baking Spray. Place batter into muffin pans.  Fill muffin cups about three-fourths full. Add topping onto each muffin.

Bake at 400° for 16-18 minutes. (Oven temperatures may vary, so total baking time may be different for you.) Cool for 10 minutes. Makes around 24 muffins.

Note: I do freeze our Applesauce Cinnamon Oat Muffins. I warm up one muffin for about 30 seconds in the microwave. (Microwave times vary)


I also have a recipe for Apple Coffee Cake using applesause that is a favorite with my famly. Do you have any favorite recipes that use applesauce?

Happy Cooking!

  1. I made these this morning, and my son said, “I don’t like them…. I LOVE THEM!”. Great recipe! Thanks!

  2. Hi there,
    These muffins look good. How many muffins does the recipe yield? is it possible to substitute quick cooking oats with old fashioned rolled oats?

    • This recipe makes about 24 muffins. Yes, you could use quick cooking oats in this recipe. I always use quick cooking oats and do not use old fashioned rolled oats when making these muffins.
