Stevia Sweetened Apple Oatmeal Muffins

 

Apples, oats and muffins……….make for a perfect breakfast don’t you think?

The night before Easter I decided to make these wonderfully yummy and healthy muffins to have for breakfast in the morning before heading to church. We leave super early, 8am!

These muffins bake in 20 minutes.Yeah!

 

 

When I first began my blog, my original Apple Oatmeal Muffins recipe was not sugar free. It is refined sugar and flour free, but not sugar free. I used sucanat to sweeten them which is healthier and less refined than white sugar. But I  had wanted to tweak the recipe a bit and try it with stevia only.

 

 

Still just as moist and delicious as the original recipe and now completely sugar free!

I used only 1/2 tablespoon of stevia making them only barely sweet which is fine for us, but increase to 1 tablespoon if your family is used to regularly sweetened muffins and treats.

    Just wondering do you think this would work well with blueberry or blackberry instead to the apple in it ?

  2. says

    These just passed the kid test! Delicious and I only used Stevia for the very first time when baking! Yippiee…I am on my way to kicking my sugar addiction.
    Thank you!

  3. Angie says

    I have stevia drops coming , how much of the drops would I uses powder? So thankful for your website….I’m slowly going sugar free! Your site makes the transition alot easier to do!

      I would say at least 3 teaspoons but that may not make them sweet enough for your family. You could start with that and see how it goes.

    First recipe from this site, I have to say I am so happy! Had most ingredients in my pantry, everything thing else was inexpensive. So easy to make! My hubby loved them, then I told him they were good for him, he promised not to eat hem all tonight! Looking forward to making more recipes!

    I have been looking for a good muffin recipe that was not 400 calories or 12 points. My husband is pre-diabetic and I am always counting points if I gain some weight so I don’t go to far. It is hard to find certain recipes that list the points. I use the old points. I am going to make these right now.

    I used AlmoBreeze in this recipe. No sugars, no cholesterol, 1 g fiber, 1 g protein and only 30 calories per 1 cup. Good stuff!

      If my boys weren’t eating them and they were just for me I would have used Almond milk for sure, but since this is for my family and my boys have nut allergies I can’t use it. Thanks.

  7. Cindy says

    I have a milk allergy. I used almond milk (but coconut milk or soy would probably have worked too). I used coconut butter. I used 2 tsp. stevia. WOW! These taste amazing!

  8. Amanda West says

    Does this recipe yield 12 or 6 muffins. I am making them now and just a little confused b/c it says to spray a 12 cup muffin pan but on the serving facts it says that is serves 6.

  9. Krista says

    Made these last night with almond flour instead of whole wheat. Topped them with greek yoghurt and some honey. Amazing! What a great breakfast! Thank you!

  10. Vanessa So remember halfway through baking says

    Just wanted to say that if you don’t eat eggs, they’re still awesome without! I completely forgot the eggs when I made these, only through baking! They taste amazing, though, even without! :D

    I used grated carrots instead of apples, and I added walnuts and nutmeg. I got a fantastic sugar-free muffin that tastes like carrot cake. Thanks!

  12. Edie Joy Williams says

    I started my own no sugar/flour processed foods eating plan (I didn’t know about yours) a little over a month ago. Found this muffin recipe a few days ago and LOVE them! Then I tried substituting banana for the applesauce and added sugar free chocolate chips. Husband LOVED them too. And pumpkin in place of applesauce and added more cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves and the chopped apple. Also really good! Thanks for this keeper recipe!
