Cinnamon Apple Muffins

Muffins… Yummy!
My family is so happy when I make muffins for them to eat with breakfast. We pretty much have the exact same thing every morning so when I change things up they get super excited!
We especially liked these muffins because they have all the comforting spices of fall and they were particularly moist (and less fattening) because I used applesauce. And, of coarse, they are grain and dairy free 🙂

  • 1¼ C Blanched Almond Flour, Honeyville Brand
  • ¾ C Arrowroot Flour
  • 1½ Tsp. Baking Powder (Grain-Free Recipe)
  • ¼ Tsp. Sea Salt
  • 1 Tbsp. Cinnamon
  • 1 Tsp. Ground Nutmeg
  • ¼ Tsp. Ground Cloves
  • 3 Large Eggs
  • ⅓ C Applesauce
  • 3 Tbsp. Earth Balance Coconut Spread (or butter of choice)
  • ⅔ C Granulated Sugar (I used coconut palm sugar)
  • ¼ C SO Delicious Coconut Milk or preferred milk alternative
  • 3 Granny Smith Apples
  • 1 Tsp. Lemon Juice
  • 2 Tsp. Vanilla Extract
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Whisk the almond flour, arrowroot, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves until well mixed. Set aside.
  3. Peel, core, and finely chop the apples. Stir in the lemon juice and set aside.
  4. In a large mixing bowl, beat the applesauce, coconut sugar, and coconut spread until well blended. Add in the eggs one at a time, scraping down the bowl as necessary.
  5. Slowly beat in the vanilla, milk alternative, and dry ingredients until well combined.
  6. Stir in the apples.
  7. Line a muffin tin with baking cups or spray with cooking oil. Evenly divide the batter into each cup. Bake 17 - 20 minutes or until browned on top.
  8. Cool completely to properly set up. Enjoy!


Here are my picts I took while baking 🙂

    I cannot WAIT to try these! Thank you for posting. Apple muffins sound so delish – I think I’m going to make these tomorrow or the next day. I love your posts! The palm sugar sweetened chocolate chip cookie recipe is our absolute favorite!


  2. I love apples for Fall – my favorite seasonal ingredient. Naturally, muffins are a great way to go. Unfortunately, I don’t have any arrowroot flour but I think that’s just a starch right? Would potato or corn starch work well in its place?

    I saw this post on Slightly Indulgent. I shared an apple protein donuts recipe, I’d love for you to check out as well 🙂

  3. Beautiful recipe, Cassidy. Wow! I’ll be featuring this these lovely muffins tonight on AFW.

    Hope you’re feeling well and enjoying fall so far. Arg – it’s still super hot here in Northern California. If you can believe it, 91 degrees tomorrow.
