Enjoy one or perhaps two of these easy to prepare oat fiber muffins for breakfast, or as an afternoon snack with some butter and coffee.

You can prepare it as a muffin, bread or a roll.

Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Rest 5 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes

  • ½ tbsp baking powder
  • 6 eggs 
  • 6 tbsp melted butter
  • ½ tbsp psyllium husk powder
  • 2 tbsp sugar (optional)

Cheesy Version

  • ¾ cup oat fiber
  • ½ tbsp baking powder
  • 5 eggs 
  • ± 1-2 tbsp, a splash of cream 
  • 6 tbsp melted butter
  • ½ tbsp psyllium husk powder
  • ½ cup of grated cheddar cheese


  1. Combine everything but the psyllium husk powder with a whisk until smooth.
  2. Then sprinkle the husk powder in and mix well to combine.
  3. Bake in a muffin tin or on a baking sheet as buns at 350F / 175C for 15-20 mins depending on size until lightly golden brown.
  4. I will definitely make these again!!

You can flavor the basic muffin with something like garlic powder, or what about some onion powder. You may wish to try playing around and add some nuts or seeds, how about some chocolate chips or even some berries. The choices are endless.

Add cheese as we did, or anything you wish to add as this is a very versatile base version to adapt to your own liking.

I added a few tablespoons of sugar for breakfast muffins.

Cheesy Version
 will definitely make this again!!

What is Oat Fiber?

Oat fiber is an insoluble fiber made from grinding the oat hull, which is the shell that surrounds the oat groat (or kernel).


What do you use oat fiber for?

With a mild taste and a very fine powdered texture, oat fiber can be used in everything from muffins and pancakes to smoothies and cereals. Whatever floats your oat. It’s all about that fiberFiber is excellent for digestion, weight management, lowering cholesterol, and helping to control blood sugar levels


Can I make my own oat fiber?

In a word, no. Oat flour is ground-up oats (you can do this in a good blender or coffee grinder) and thus a carb source. Oat fiber has no carbs or fats and can be purchased online. Not all brands are created equally, and some have a much lighter taste and texture than others.

Is oat fiber the same as oatmeal?
No, oatmeal and oat fiber are not the same thing. Grinding the husk or hull of the oat grain makes oat fiberOatmeal is derived from the de-hulled oat groat.

    • Hi Nadine, I am not in South Africa, but my guess would be that you will be able to find it at specialty shops or specialty baking stores. Also, I do not know where in South Africa you are.
      As a side note: What is a substitute for oat fiber? What is a substitute for oat fiber? Oat flour can be substituted for oat fiber in most baking recipes. There is a fundamental difference in the absorption rate within liquids, however, the difference should be negligible.
