  • 1 c. oat flour
  • 1 t. baking powder
  • 1/2 t. baking soda
  • 1/4 t. sea salt
  • 3/4 t. cinnamon
  • 1/2 t. ginger
  • 1/4 t. cloves


  • 1/3 c. buttermilk see Notes on how to make your own
  • 1 T. oil I like olive or grapeseed
  • 2 T. maple syrup see Notes for lower sugar option
  • 2 Tbsp applesauce
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 t. vanilla
  • 3/4 c. finely grated carrot about 2 medium-sized carrots
  • 1/4 c. raisins optional


  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  • Mix the dry ingredients together in a medium bowl.
  • In a separate bowl, mix the wet ingredients.
  • Add the wet ingredients to the dry mix and stir gently until just moistened.
  • Fold in the carrots and raisins (if using).
  • Fill nine paper muffin cups about 3/4 of the way full.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes, until tops are springy to the touch. As with any muffin, don't overbake or they will be dry!
