2 cups certified gluten-free rolled oats
2 teaspoons gluten-free baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/4 cup dark brown sugar, firmly packed
1/4 cup plain yogurt, gluten free
1/2 cup apple juice
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
1 large egg white
1/4 cup light olive oil, or canola oil

Steps to Make It
Preheat oven to 350 F.
Use a clean coffee bean grinder to process 2 cups of certified gluten-free oats into oat flour. Depending on the size of your grinder, you may have to do this in batches.
Place oat flour, baking powder, baking soda, brown sugar, and cinnamon in a mixing bowl. Whisk to blend.
Lightly beat eggs in a separate small bowl. Add yogurt, apple juice, oil, and vanilla. Whisk to blend and pour into bowl with dry ingredients. Stir to combine thoroughly.
Fold in shredded apple and walnuts. Stir just until blended.
Line muffin pan with paper liners, or lightly grease pan and fill each muffin cup about 3/4 full.
Bake for 16 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean.
Sprinkle hot muffins with cinnamon-sugar mixture and allow muffins to cool for about 10 to 15 minutes before serving.
- Use a cheese grater to shred apple.
