Cinnabon Muffins with Oat Flour

Cinnabon Muffins with Oat Flour

Cinnabon muffins made with oat flour are so fun to make. There is a cinnamon sauce that you pour into the middle of the batter before baking. When you pull them out of the oven the muffins have a bit of a gooey center and they are just extraordinary!

Important Step

Grind oats into a flour consistency. You will need a high speed blender for this step, or just process in whatever blender you have until the oats are a fine flour.

I measure heaping cups of oats and I get the perfect amount every time. Oat flour recipes are very forgiving, so if you’re a little short or have too much, it won’t be a problem.

If you find that your muffin batter has gotten too thick, no problem. Oats are sponges and absorb liquid quickly. Simply add 1/2 cup of water to the batter and it will be the perfect consistency again for the most amazing cinnabon muffins.
