No Sugar Oatmeal Apple Muffins

Tantalizing low GI muffins with plenty of goodness but no added sugar.



  1. Pre-heat oven to 400 °F (200 °C).
  2. In a food processor, whirl flax seeds with warm water until you have a "gooey mess".
  3. Add milk and vegetable oil and give it another spin to mix with the flaxseed.
  4. Combine dry ingredients; flour, oats, salt, baking powder, nutmeg, cinnamon, sweetener (like Stevia) and walnuts, in a large mixing bowl.
  5. Slowly stir the wet ingredients into the dry. Fold in the chopped apple.
  6. Fill muffin cups 1/2-3/4 full with batter. Bake for 15 - 20 minutes or until a knife comes out clean.
  7. Remove from oven and allow to cool.

I just eat plain oatmeal with cinnamon and some shredded apple I'm sure your muffins are yummy. too many calories and the imitation sugar triggers hunger

@NoSugarGoal It seems that you might be a little confused on what glycemic load and what the glycemic index is for. What you're describing is a carb-free diet and not a "sugar-free" diet. This recipe is fine for people wanting a low GI food, granted I wouldn't pound them down every day if you're trying to lose fat. Maybe once a week. In addition to the oats and apple, both low GI foods, you also have the almond milk, which the fat will also slow down digestion and not cause insulin spikes.

I don't want to rain on your parade, but this is not a sugar free recipe. Remember, many items have sugar in them and carbs turn into sugar in the body! 87g of carbs in 1 cup of whole wheat flour. 19g of carbs in a medium apple... and 14g of sugar in a medium apple. Also, almond milk is high in sugar unless you use the unsweetened almond milk. I sought out this web-site because I am finding it quite impossible to go on a true "sugar-free" diet. Still trying :)

I used macadamia nut oil instead of vegetable. Adds healthier fats than the vegetable or canola oil. Also gives a hint of butteriness.

The directions call for walnuts but the ingredient list does not call for them. If you add them just beware of your nutritional content difference.

3pts for 1 muffin, not bad. Seems that I wouldn't be full on that alone. Paired with something for 1 or 2pts could make for a filling breakfast.
