Apple Cinnamon Muffins

These apple cinnamon muffins are my absolute favorite thing right now! Muffins always take me right back to my childhood when I would eat those giant ones from Costco for breakfast… prettyyy much daily. The chocolate chip and lemon poppyseed muffins were my favorite! Oh man, they were so good…but not exactly the best for me. 😉

Anyway, my love continues on as an adult with these apple cinnamon muffins! I wanted to create a muffin that wasn’t too sweet, and would make a great breakfast or snack on the go. These are also super easy to make, as we all know by now that I don’t do complicated baking! They’re extra delicious smeared with some ghee or almond butter too!

Now, if there’s one thing I know for sure about grain-free baking, it’s that you’ve gotta use parchment muffin liners. Regular muffin liners will cause the muffin to stick… So you’ll just end up with only half of a sad muffin that you can eat. Let’s just say that I definitely learned this lesson the hard way, haha!

Apple Cinnamon Muffins

Yield: 10 muffins

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Line a muffin tin with 10 parchment muffin liners (this will keep your muffins from sticking to the paper).
  2. Place all of the ingredients, except for the apples, into a food processor. Pulse until well combined, scraping down the sides as needed. Add the diced apples to the food processor and stir to combine.
    **No food processor? No problem! Simply mix the dry ingredients into a bowl, and the wet ingredients into a separate bowl. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mix until well combined, and then add the diced apples.
  1. Scoop the batter into the parchment lined muffin tin. Bake 25-30 minutes, or until the tops of the muffins are lightly browned and they bounce back when touched. Place on a cooling rack. Enjoy warm!

    These are A-MAZING! I’m a little intimated by baking but this was super easy. If I can just avoid eating them all in one day…

    I am sensitive to eggs… I tried this recipe with apple sauce as an egg replacement… and the muffins came out crumbly 😢 Was wondering if you had any better egg replacements ideas for me??? PS the flavor is amazing!!

      Hi Nikol! Unfortunately this is one recipe where I haven’t found a way to sub out the eggs, as coconut flour requires eggs in order to bind correctly. If it’s 1-2 eggs, you can usually substitute a flax “egg” or gelatin “egg.” I am currently working on an egg-free banana bread, so stay tuned for that! 🙂

    Can one use Almond flour as a substitute and almond milk. These sound amazing but hubby is allergic to coconut!😫

      Hi Rebecca! Unfortunately coconut flour is one that isn’t easy to substitute, as it’s incredibly absorbent compared to any other flour. Sorry!
