Here’s what you’ll need to make these delicious muffins:

  • oat flour- I prefer store-bought oat flour, but you can make your own by blending rolled oats in a blender

  • greek yogurt- you can use sour cream for more of a traditional recipe

  1. Hi! Love all your recipes. Would I be able to sub the Greek yogurt and butter for other ingredients to make this dairy free?

  2. Can almond flour be used to replacement oat flour?

    • Unfortunately almond flour isn’t always a 1:1 sub for oat flour so I don’t think the texture will stay the same
