Grain-free Apple Cinnamon Muffins



I made these in the bite-sized muffin pan, and they turned out so well I don’t have any left to eat while I finally have time to write this post. What can I say but, thank HEAVENS I am inspired to eat semi-healthy again. The flour and sugar really gets me down (and, it turns out, post-baby, I can really see physically how it affects me as well). These were the perfect way back on track. Might have to make another batch right now, actually. And eat them all. Willpower is another thing that seems to have disappeared with motherhood.

Don’t be shy with the cinnamon, it covers the coconut flavor nicely. Something about the coconut flour, when it hits the egg, makes it absorb moisture and the batter gets thick. Not to worry, just get your mixing done quick enough.

1 cup almond flour
3 Tbsp coconut flour
½ teaspoon baking soda
pinch of salt
1-2 Tbsp cinnamon
2 apples, cored and diced
3 eggs
¼ cup coconut oil, melted
2 tablespoons honey

  1. Mix dry ingredients together. Add the apple chunks and stir to coat.
  2. Whisk the eggs with the coconut oil and honey. Mix into the dry ingredients.
  3. With a spatula, spoon batter into the pan and level each muffin off. The dough will rise a little while baking.
  4. Bake at 275F for 12-15 mins, depending on your oven.
