  • 1 1/2 Teaspoons Ground Cinnamon
  • 3/4 Teaspoon Ground Ginger
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Ground Allspice
  • 2 Large Eggs
  • 1/2 Cup (4 Ounces) Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk (or Regular Milk/Other Milk Substitute)

Take out a blender or food processor and blend your Rolled Oats until they look like flour (to make Oat Flour). Add all of your dry ingredients into a large bowl and mix them together. Add all of your wet ingredients into a separate bowl and mix them together. Slowly/gently mix your wet ingredients into your dry ingredients (make sure not to over-mix). Take out a muffin pan, coat it with non-stick cooking spray, and pour your mix into each muffin spot almost all the way to the top (leaving maybe 1/4’’). Top with Ground Cinnamon/anything else. Bake on 350°F/176°C for 10:00-15:00. Enjoy!


  • Add nuts, peanut butter, chocolate, or white chocolate into your mix or on top of your muffins!
