Recipe type: Breakfast, Snack
Serves: 12
  • 1 cup oat flour
  • ½ cup potato starch
  • ½ cup tapioca starch
  • ½ cup rice flour (brown or white, but not sticky white)
  • 1 Tbsp coconut flour
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 2 Tbsp poppyseeds
  • ⅓ cup aquafaba
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 15-25 drops pure lemon essential oil (about ½ tsp) or 2 tsp lemon flavoring/extract
  1. Preheat the oven to 375˚F and prepare the muffin tin.
  2. In a medium sized bowl, whisk together the oat flour, rice flour, tapioca starch, potato starch, coconut flour, baking powder, poppyseeds, and salt.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk the aquafaba for about 1 minute or until very frothy.
  4. Add in the milk and whisk for another minute.
  5. Next, add in the sugar, vanilla extract, and lemon essential oil and whisk again.
  6. Pour the dry ingredients into the large bowl with the liquid mixture and slowly mix, ensuring that there are no large clumps. The batter will appear to be a little thin, and it might settle and separate a little if left sitting on the counter. Simply remix with a few stirs.
  7. Using a ¼ cup, place the batter into the muffin tins.
  8. Bake in the oven for 23-25 minutes or until the edges of the muffins have begun to turn golden.
  9. Remove from the oven and cool the pan on a cooling rack for 15 minutes.
  10. Remove the muffins from the muffin tin and cool completely on the cooling rack.
