Servings 6 servings (2 muffins)


  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce I use one of my kids organic pouches!
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree store bought is fine (just make sure its pure pumpkin - not pumpkin pie mix!)
  • 3 organic eggs whisked
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup or could do coconut sugar or organic brown sugar
  • 1 cup ground oat flour take organic oats and pulse in food processor
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 1/2 tsp pumpkin spice mix see below if you want to make your own!
  • 1/4 tsp Sea salt
  • 2 scoops vital proteins collagen peptides OPTIONAL
  • 1/4 cup walnuts OPTIONAL: chopped (I love the crunch!)
  • 1 cup apple OPTIONAL: diced into small pieces - for added sweetness we put these in the bottom of the liners then filling on top!

Home-Made Pumpkin Spice Mix ***This will leave you with extra!

  • 3 tbsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 tsp ground ginger
  • 2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 1/2 tsp allspice
  • 1 1/2 tsp ground cloves


  • Pre-heat oven to 350
  • Whisk eggs and then combine wet ingredients into bowl: applesauce, pumpkin puree, maple syrup.
  • In a separate bowl combine dry ingredients: oat flou, almond flour, baking soda, salt, pumpkin spice mix, vital proteins (if adding in!), chopped walnuts (if adding in)
  • Combine wet and dry ingredients together. If using chopped apples place in bottom of liner or mix in. Place mix in muffin liners. Bake in oven for 20-25 minutes or until knife comes out clean.
  • Store in fridge after cooling for up to 5 days or freeze if batch making! We ate our ours in 3 days kids loved them! I actually liked them second day better with a little almond butter or maple butter on the top!
