Dry Ingredients

  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup quick oats
  • 1/2 cup Bob's Red Mill almond flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/4 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/4 tsp allspice

Wet Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1-2 tbsp fresh orange zest (and more to garnish if desired)

Orange Spice Glaze

  • 3-4 tbsp powdered sugar (more if you need to thicken glaze)
  • 1 tbsp orange juice
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/8 tsp allspice


  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. In a small bowl, mix together your all purpose flour, oats, almond flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and spices until all combined. Set aside. 

  2. In a large bowl, add your olive oil and brown sugar. Mix together until combined. To this mixture, add your unsweetened almond milk, orange juice, vanilla extract, apple sauce and orange zest. Mix together until combined. 

  3. Slowly add in your dry ingredients to your wet ingredients and mix just until combined, making sure not to overmix. 

  4. To a greased muffin tin, fill the tins 2/3 of the way full with the muffin batter. Bake for 20-22 minutes or until toothpick comes clean. Let cool in the pan for 5 minutes. Remove and let cool on a rack. Pour the glaze over them when you're ready to eat. Enjoy! Garnish with additional fresh orange zest if desired.

Orange Spice Glaze

  1. While your muffins are cooking, make your glaze. In a small bowl, combine your powdered sugar, orange juice, water and spices. Mix until smooth and no lumps of powdered sugar remain. If your mixture is too thin, add more sugar. If it's too thick, add more water. 

Recipe Notes

I used a jumbo 6 muffin tin to make these. The recipe should work fine for a 12 muffin tin as well - you just may need to add more glaze.
