Amanda’s Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal Muffins

Amanda Sheldon, a Rep in Craig, CO shared this delicious fall recipe and we knew we had to share it with all of our foodie friends! Cinnamon-spiced muffins loaded with freshly diced apples and cinnamon chips, topped with a sweet oat mixture. We can’t think of a better way to use freshly picked apples this Fall!

How long will these last?

If stored at room temperature in an airtight container, these will last for about 3 days. You can also freeze for up to 3 months in a freezer-safe container or Ziploc Gallon Freezer Bags (#1979).

Oat Topping:


  1. First, preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. Then, make the muffin batter by combining eggs, oil, & water. Add 1/2 liquid to bowl. Add mix and blend with a mixer for three minutes, then add the balance of liquids while mixing, continuing to mix for two more minutes.
  3. Next, add Siagon Cinnamon, Cinnamon drops, chopped apples and 1/2 cup of Honeyville quick rolled oats to the batter. Fold all ingredients together. Then, fill a paper-lined (#1646) muffin tin 2/3 of the way.
  4. For the oat topping, mix dry ingredients together then add melted butter and mix well.
  5. Top the muffin batter with the prepared oat topping, then place in the oven.
  6. Bake for 22 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

Jamie’s Cinnamon Chip Bread

Around here, we are big fans of Homemade Bread. We love white, wheat, rolls, cinnamon rolls, you name it! When we saw Jamie share this simple bread recipe, we knew we had to get our hands on it. It’s like a glorified cinnamon swirl loaf! Plus, there are lots of great adaptations to make the most of this basic bread recipe.

Additional add ins:

  • Whole grains and nuts. Some we love are flax seed (#1117), sunflower seeds, cracked wheat, oats (#1881), poppy seeds. To get the most flavor, try roasting beforehand. In addition, we prefer coating the outer edge of our loaf rather than mixing into the dough.
  • Honey. This adds sweetness and moisture to your bread.
  • Dry herbs and spices. Our favorites are Garlic Supreme, Rosemary, Sage, or Allspice. There are plenty of others that are delicious as well.
  • Nutella (#7338). Adding Nutella before baking your loaf will leave you with a delicious chocolate swirl throughout your bread.

Jamie’s Cinnamon Chip Bread


My basic bread recipe:

For Cinnamon Chip Bread:


  1. First, add the oil, water, sugar, salt.
  2. Then, start adding about half the flour. While you do this, also add the Yeast in and start mixing and then add the rest of the flour. Do this until it’s pulling clean from the sides of the bowl, but still a little tacky*.
  3. Once you get the right consistency, shape and let rise in bread pans about 30 min, til 1/2-1 in. above the pan. Finally, bake at 350 for 30 min.

Hope that makes sense, I’ve been using that recipe for over twelve years, passed down from my mom, mostly whole wheat, but I also love to add 9-grain and 6-grain mix or Craisins and pecans. Lots of great AP stuff 😍. The cinnamon chip is a huge favorite though.

Notes from Jamie:

  • My basic recipe is for a big Bosch, so scale down the water and flour if you have less than a 6-quart bowl.
  • I seriously let it sit and run in the mixer for 5 to 10 minutes, just letting it knead and knead.
  • You can use any basic bread recipe—I do it in white or wheat, my Bosch is big and I get four big loaves out of a batch, but the trick is that after it kneads I split it in half and I let it cool on the counter for a few minutes and then put one half back in the Bosch and mix in one cup of cinnamon chips and then do the same with the second half. If the dough is too warm it will melt the chips while it mixes!
