This weekends recipe is Paleo Apple Cinnamon muffins. This is my 2nd. attempt at these muffins. The first time I made them, I’ll admit, I forgot what I thought was one of the key ingredients the cinnamon! LOL They came out awfully bland and tasteless and I attributed it to the lack of cinnamon.
This morning, I decided to give it another go and made sure I added ALL the ingredients and even put a little extra cinnamon. I still do think they are missing some sweetness. However, since it is a Paleo recipe they are good for you and good for you counts for something, right?! So, I will eat them and to give it a little bit more of sweetness I will top it with just a little bit of jam.
- 1 cup of unsweetened applesauce
- 4 eggs
- 1/4 cup melted coconut oil
- 2 tsp of vanilla
- 1 tbsp of honey
- 1/2 cup coconut flour
- 1 tbsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp salt
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. In a bowl, add applesauce, eggs, coconut oil, honey and vanilla and stir. When combined, stir in the flour, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Line your muffin tins with liners. Add the batter evenly in each cup, about 2/3 thirds of the way full. This makes approximately 12 muffins.
Bake for about 15-20 minutes until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Serve warm or store in the refrigerator in a baggie. I topped mine with some Trader Joe’s fig butter and a little bit of butter and that made them better to me. These are great for breakfast on the go….just heat for 20 seconds in micro, grab and go! You may have to forego the jam if you do that, however. Enjoy!
