Apple Cinnamon Gluten Free Muffins and Kettlebells for 5 minutes


Apple Cinnamon Muffins
Gluten Free





I've been on a baking kick lately, mostly inspired by my daughter who has recently needed to avoid gluten and dairy. I still give her sprouted whole grain bread from time to time, which she does well with. When 3 out of the 4 kids are able to eat bagels, pizza, ice cream and mac n cheese with no consequences, it can be very difficult for the 1 child who can't eat those things. This is why it's imperative I continue to make delicious food that all the kids can enjoy! 

These muffins can be used for breakfast, snack, dessert or taken on the go. I made them last night and put them in the fridge after they cooled.   This morning this moist apple pie tasting muffin tasted even better than last night!

This tastes very similar to a gluten free apple cake I made years ago, which was very yummy! For that recipe check it out here. This recipe was inspired by my favorite gluten free  chef Elana Amsterdam at www.elanaspantry.com. I made several minor changes to lower the sugar and the sodium content while upping the protein.

INGREDIENTS

2 cups almond flour
1/4 tsp himalayan pink salt
1.5 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 cup tapioca flour or arrowroot powder
1/4 cup grapeseed oil or coconut oil
1/3 cup honey
2 eggs
1 T vanilla extract
2 apples peeled, cored and chopped well.


Preheat the oven to 350 F. Line 12 paper liners in muffin tins.

Mix all of the wet ingredients well in a bowl.  Combine all of the dry ingredients in a separate large bowl. Then stir the wet ingredients in to the large bowl with the dry. Slowly fold in the finely chopped apples until it's mixed well. 

Fill each muffin cup with mixture. These won't rise very much. I filled them up and was able to get 12. 

Bake for 35-40 minutes until the tops become brown. The center will be very moist at first. Let them cool for a 30 - 60 minutes and then put in fridge or serve after when cooled. I'm sure vanilla ice ream would be amazing on top. Feel free to let me know!
