Muffins are definitely a favorite breakfast at my house. We’ve tried many varieties of muffins, from banana bread muffins to avocado mint muffins to dark chocolate berry muffins to savory pumpkin muffins – and we love them all – but these soaked granola ones are probably my family’s favorites.
Soaked Granola Muffins
Traditionally prepared grains.
Interested in more soaked goodness? Here are a few other delicious recipes with traditionally prepared grains. They’re not just soaked recipes, there are a few gluten-free sourdough recipes, as well. My family does enjoy sourdough made from non-gluten-free grains, but I won’t include those here, don’t worry!
All these recipes are great for your digestion, and a sure way to have a happy tummy, too. 🙂
- Buckwheat & Sorghum Pancakes
- Gluten-Free Garlic & Herb Sourdough Crackers
- Steamed Indian Idli Rice Cakes
- Sourdough Almond Flour Waffles
- Gluten-Free Sourdough Pancakes
- Soaked Maple Apple Baked Oatmeal
- Gluten-Free Soaked Pizza Crust
- Overnight Almond Oatmeal Waffles

Soaked Granola Muffins
Free of gluten, refined sugar, and dairy, with egg-free option.
- 5 cups gluten-free rolled oats
- 1 cup shredded coconut
- 1 tablespoon cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon himalayan salt
- 1 cup applesauce
- 1/3 cup honey
- 1/3 cup whey (for dairy-free, just sub this out with the same amount of water + 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar)
- 2 cups milk of choice or water (I like to use my homemake coconut milk)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (I like to make my own)
- 4 eggs (or 1/4 cup flax meal for egg-free)
- 1 cup raisins
- 1 cup diced apple
- 1/2 cup dairy-free chocolate chips or my homemade chocolate chunks (optional, but for real, why not?)
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
Combine soak together ingredients in a large glass or ceramic bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and let sit on your counter overnight, or for at least 7 hours.
When the soaking period is over, preheat oven to 375, and stir in “add in” ingredients.
For muffins, scoop 1/3 cupfuls of batter into greased or lined muffin tins and bake for 20-25 minutes.
For granola bars pour batter into a couple greased or parchment lined 9×13 inch dish and bake for 20-25 minutes.
For cookies place heaping tablespoonfuls onto cookie sheet and bake for 12 minutes, or until golden-browned.
These sound great! Pinning 🙂
Thanks, Yuliya! 🙂
These look yummy and moist. I may try this and sub out the whey. Pinning to my Simple Pleasures board. =)

Thanks, Anna! They're pretty easy to whip up before bed, but if you forget you could always soak them in the morning and have them for dinner. 😉

I like the coconut and how moist these muffins look… so glad you brought them to foodie friday.

Congrats! Your recipe was voted most popular! I'm liking how moist these muffing look too. Looking forward to what you share this week at Five Friday Finds. 🙂
These look amazing! While soaking, should the mixture be refrigerated or can it be left out?
It should be left out. 🙂 I'll make sure to specify that… thanks! 🙂
Is there any way to leave out or substitute something for the coconut?
You can probably leave it out. I haven’t tried it, though, so I can’t say the results will be exactly the same. 🙂
