Recipe yields 12 muffins.


  • 4 cups Bob’s Red Mill One-to-One Gluten-Free Flour
  • 1 cup raw sugar, plus more for topping
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • 1 Tbsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp Himalayan pink salt

  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1 cup plain yogurt (or milk, or non-dairy milk)
  • 2 apples, peeled, quartered & chopped

Preheat oven to 350° F. Mix first 6 ingredients in a large bowl, forming a well in the center.  Combine wet ingredients (next 4 ingredients) in the well, then fold in dry ingredients and apples.  Scoop into a paper lined muffin tin, filling 3/4 of the way, and sprinkle the tops with oats and sugar.  Bake 18-20 minutes.  Remove from oven, allow to cool in tin for 1-2 minutes, then remove promptly.  Serve warm.

  1. Are you sure it’s 4 cups of flour?
    I only ask because I just mixed this recipe up and it is extremely dry and hardly enough wet ingredients to fold into the dry.
    I added some water just to get it to mix.
    I scooped into 12 muffins tins and I still have enough mix to make 12 more muffins!
    I hope they taste good – I’ll let you know when they come out of the oven.

      • Hi Emily. Well they are definitely tasty, chewy and moist with a great cinnamon-apple flavor.
        There was enough batter to make 24 cupcakes, which was double the yield of what the recipe had indicated.

        • Thank you so much for providing your feedback. We will circle back with our recipe developer and make some changes, as needed. Have a great day! -Emily at KWF
