Happy Saturday! Time to make brunch and these muffins would make the perfect addition. Ford, my not-so-little toddler, loves muffins! Very shocking LOL 🙂 I call him the “Muffin Monster” so needless to say, we are always making them around here. I love to cook/bake, and my goal is to put a healthy twist on classic items, while maintaining good flavor and utilizing nutritional ingredients.
My intent was to create something for the kiddos that weren’t packed with a bunch of flour and granulated sugar. Ding ding, we have a winner! These apple cinnamon gems turned out SO good. I used maple syrup to sweeten them but you could also use honey (if child is over 1 year). These are great for the entire family. AND a little tip: make them on the weekend so you have the muffins throughout the week. Easy breakfast!
I’m not sure if a recipe gets any easier than this. You literally throw everything in a mixer, blend and pop ’em in the oven! Below is the list of simple ingredients I used and steps to make them. Enjoy!
Muffin liners – I love this paper option
Cooking spray – I use avocado oil
2 cups almond flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
2 tsp cinnamon
2 tablespoon flax seed
1/3 cup maple syrup
1 tsp vanilla
1 large apple diced
2 tablespoons of butter or coconut oil
Dash of sea salt
1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
2. Put all ingredients in a Kitchen Aid or use a hand mixer and blend evenly. Leave out 1/4 of the diced apples to place on top of muffins.
4. Scoop muffin mix into each liner. Fill up about 2/3 of the way. They will rise.
5. Sprinkle a few apple slices on top of each of the muffins.
6. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. The muffins should be slightly browned on top. Let cool and enjoy!
