These apple oatmeal breakfast muffins are like my favorite apple oatmeal in muffin form – perfect for on-the-go breakfasts or snacking!

I had to be at work by 6:30am today, which meant I didn’t wake up in time to prepare/eat anything. Thankfully the night before I baked these apple oatmeal breakfast muffins (look at me planning ahead) that taste just like my favorite apple oatmeal!

They are a great on-the-go breakfast after a quick zap in the microwave, if you aren’t eating them fresh the same day. Managed to grab a banana before I left as well to round out my breakfast.

Speaking of banana, I think this apple oatmeal breakfast muffin recipe could be a very versatile with other mix-ins such as banana and peanut butter! Or maybe banana peanut butter cup ;-).

Nutrition facts: 200 calories 20 grams fat


  • 2 cups oats, old-fashioned or quick cooking
  • 1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup dark brown sugar, packed
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 2 Tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup shredded fresh apple
  • 1/2 cup walnuts, chopped
  • 1/2 cup white chocolate chips, plus more for topping


  1. Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees. Grease a standard 12-cup muffin pan or line with paper liners.
  2. In a large bowl, combine oats, flour, sugar, baking powder and soda, salt and cinnamon. Set aside.
  3. In a medium bowl, with a fork, beat buttermilk, oil and egg until well blended; stir in shredded apples. Add apple mixture to flour mixture and stir just until the flour mixture is moistened (the batter will be very thick). Stir in chopped nuts and white chocolate chips.
  4. Spoon batter into prepared muffin pan and drop 5-6 white chocolate chips onto the top of each muffin. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Remove muffins from pan immediately. Serve warm or freeze for a quick breakfast (I stored mine in the refrigerator then heat in microwave for 15 seconds).
