Spiced Apple Muffins - Gluten Free, Grain Free

apple spiced muffins 1

A lot of our customers come to us for their apples to enjoy as a naturally gluten free treat. But, we are always excited when we are able to find a baking recipe that utilizes apples!

The original recipe was posted on The Nourishing Gourmet back in 2009 and we are so happy we found it. We used Bob’s Red Mill coconut flour. Be very careful with the salt on the recipe, we slipped a bit on the salt on our first attempt and, oh boy!

For an apple choice in this recipe, we would suggest Jonagold or Honeycrisp. Gluten free recipes can feel dry so using an apple with more juice will help keep these muffins moist. Jonagolds and Honeycrisps also have a good sweet/tart balance to help counteract the sweetness of the coconut flour.

If you wanted to tweak this recipe to make it vegan, substitute chia seed “eggs” and maple syrup for the honey. We did not try this variation so comment below if you do and let us know how it went!
