Wet Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup unsweetened applesauce (Watch out for sugar added applesauce, the unsweetened should have zero added sugar)
  • 1/2 cup cane sugar
  • 1/3 cup melted dairy free butter of choice (I used this one)
  • 2 large room temperature eggs (I recommend leaving them out for at least 30 minutes)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

Dry Ingredients

  • 2 scoops unflavored collagen peptides
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 cup favorite dairy-free chocolate chips 


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line with 10 muffin paper liners.
  2. In a large bowl, add the applesauce, sugar, melted butter, vanilla extract and eggs. Mix until combined and set aside.
  3. In a separate bowl, add the all purpose flour, rolled oats, collagen peptides, baking powder, baking soda, and sea salt. Mix until combined.
  4. Add the dry to the wet and mix until there are no clumps in the batter.
  5. Add the chocolate chips into the batter.
