Makes 12-18 cupcakes

  • 1 c. old fashioned oats
  • 1 1/4 c. boiling water
  • 1/4 c. coconut oil 
  • 1/4 c. almond butter
  • 2/3 c. unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 c. organic sugar
  • 1 t. vanilla
  • 1/2 c. whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1 c. all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 t. baking soda
  • 1 1/2 t. baking powder
  • 1/2 t. salt
  • 1 t. cinnamon
  • 1/2 t. nutmeg

“Cream Cheese” Frosting:

  • 4 oz. vegan (i.e. Tofutti) or organic cream cheese
  • 3 t. vegan margarine (i.e. Earth Balance)
  • dash of salt
  • 1/4 t. vanilla extract
  • 2 c. powdered sugar
  • optional: toasted coconut and pecans for garnish
  • ( I garnished my with red sprinkles, ’tis the season).


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a small bowl, cover oats with boiling water and set aside for 15-20 minutes, until water is absorbed.Meanwhile, beat together coconut oil, almond butter, applesauce, sugar and vanilla until combined.

In a separate bowl, combine flours, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. When oatmeal is ready, mix it into the wet mixture, and slowly add flour mixture to the batter, stirring until incorporated.

Spoon batter into a muffin tin that has been sprayed with cooking spray or lined with papers. Bake for 18-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Cool Cupcakes. For frosting, beat together cream cheese, margarine, vanilla, salt and powdered sugar.


I loved these so much I have already had two!!!!  They are super moist and if you wanted you could not frost them and they would still be AMAZING!!! Best part is there is little butter and no eggs 🙂
