I use to make muffins from ready to make packets. In these recipes there was always a call for large quantities of butter and sugar. So I searched for butter replacement and sugar replacement and egg replacements. One of the best butter replacements is apple sauce. With it you still keep that soft moist texture that you get with butter.

To reduce the amount of sugar I found stevia which is extracted from a plant and has a strong natural sweetness. As it is about 6 times sweeter only a fraction of this replacement is needed.

I have made them with and without an egg but to be honest with egg they are even more fluffy but with this flaxseed egg replacement you get a great result.


To give it flavor I add a banana and cacao powder. For more protein I add a scoop of vegan chocolate powder.

This recipe is all about wet ingredients and dry ingredients. I start with the wet ingredients first. Make the flaxseed replacement using smashed 1 tbsp of flaxseed and 2 tbsp of water. Now mash the banana, add the apple sauce and further add 1 tsp of vanilla extract. Stir and set aside.

Combine the following:

  • Oatmeal flour
  • 2 tsp of Stevia if you want to use regular sugar add 400 g of sugar
  • ¼ tsp of salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ¼ cup of cacao
  • 1 scoop (28 g) of (vegan) protein powder

Put all of the dry ingredients in a bowl and stir them through. Then add the wet ingredients with the dry ingredients. Now stir, stir, stir to combine wet and dry ingredients. As a last step you can add some cacao nibs from a little extra crunch.


Pre heat your oven at 375℉ while you fill a muffin pan with the batter. Bake the muffin for about 20 minutes and check if they are done. Take a bamboo skewer and pinch the muffin. If it comes out dry they are done however if they are still wet then leave them for 2 minutes more and check again until dry.

Take the muffin pan out of the oven and let the muffins cool slightly. Now take them out of the pan. If you like you can cover them with additional chocolate sauce or some caramel sauce or . Ready to serve.
