When you’re looking for a sweet treat or a quick breakfast that doesn’t take time to cook, these apple cinnamon paleo muffins do the trick. I heat one of these delicious muffins and eat it with a little melted butter with my morning coffee. They are quick, healthy, and very satisfying.
These paleo muffins don’t take a lot of time to make and you don’t even need a mixer. They can be stirred by hand, which I love because it makes clean up a whole lot easier.
These muffins are light and fluffy, and the apple-cinnamon combination is perfection. They can be made at the start of your week and enjoyed every day by your whole family.
These paleo muffins are only compliant on the Kickstart level, but if you are between Challenges (or just willing to take a point for an occasional treat that feels worthwhile), then these muffins offer a far more nutritious alternative to any muffin you’re going to find at a restaurant or store.
Apple Cinnamon Paleo Muffins
These muffins are light and fluffy, and can be made at the start of your week and enjoyed every day by your whole family.
- 1 1/4 cups almond flour
- 2 1/2 Tbsp coconut flour
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 Tbsp ground cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
- 2 large eggs room temperature
- 5 Tbsp refined coconut oil melted
- 1/3 cup maple syrup
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup coarsely grated apples about 1 large apple
- 1 1/4 cups apples diced (about 1 large apple)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Line a muffin pan with 12 muffin liners.
In a medium bowl, mix together the almond flour, coconut flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
In a large bowl, mix together the eggs, oil, maple syrup, and vanilla.
Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until combined.
Gently fold in the apples.
Divide the batter evenly among the liners, filling them almost full.
Bake for 23-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle of a muffin comes out clean.
Let the muffins cool for 5 minutes in the pan and then remove to a wire rack to cool completely.
These paleo muffins are only compliant at Kickstart level due to the maple syrup. If you want to experiment with other sweeteners and make this compliant at other levels, feel free to experiment — but also be sure to let us know how it goes!
