Paleo: Apple Cinnamon Muffins

Since I am trying to cut out whole grains/flour, I found this apple cinnamon muffin recipe that uses almond meal (as a flour substitute). I had never made a recipe like this before so I was intrigued and hopeful it would turn out. 

Turn out, indeed. These were heavenly! The mixtures isn't as creamy/batter-like that we're normally used to for muffins, but the texture and flavors were spot on. They are especially good right out of the oven!

  • 1 cup almond flour/meal (I purchased mine at Trader Joe's, but Bob's Red Mill brand is a good one too)
  • 3 Tbsp coconut flour (I used Bob's Red Mill)
  • 1 heaping Tbsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • Pinch of salt
  • 3 eggs, whisked
  • 2 Tbsp raw honey
  • 1 apple, cored and diced
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Add almond flour, coconut flour, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt to a large bowl, and mix well.
  3. Then add your eggs, honey, diced apple, and coconut oil to the bowl, and mix thoroughly.
  4. Using my large cookie scoop, I filled 9 wells into my silicone muffin pan.
  5. Bake for 25-30 minutes.

Yield: 9 muffins
