Recipe: Apple Muffins

October 13, 2015

The best part about this blog is the ability to share all aspects of my life with you. The good, the bad and the recipes! Another cool thing is that my paleo journey has encouraged some of you to find your own lifestyle that feels good to you!

Eating paleo has been such a wonderful experience for me (& Adam) but it hasn't been all sunshine and rainbows. Sometimes i just want to stop and get McDonald's breakfast complete with a huge latte and whipped cream but then I realize that while it tastes good going down, it's doing only bad things for my body. Cue the delicious apple paleo muffins.

For a long time I made these Chocolate Banana Muffins. For a long time I loved these muffins. But, you can only eat things for so long before you start to get a little sick of chocolate banana muffins. In need for something new, I hit the internet to find a new breakfast muffin recipe. After searching and combing various recipes, I found and created these! Apple Muffins.

The thing I really love about these muffins is they taste like real bread muffins. They're easier than my chocolate banana muffins and they're more filling. I hope you all enjoy these as much as I do!

  • 2 cups almond flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 large apple, grated
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons melted coconut oil
How to Make:
  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees and line a muffin tin. 
  2. Combine dry ingredients in large bowl. Toss grated apple with lemon juice in medium bowl. 
  3. Add remaining wet ingredients and combine. 
  4. Stir wet ingredients with dry ingredients. 
  5. Fill the muffin cups with 3/4 full. 
  6. Bake for 25 minutes until a clean toothpick. (I usually add an extra 5 to crisp them up!) 
the best part? you can use those delicious honey crisp apples that are in season!
this should be thick, creamy batter
 usually I crisp these up a bit more. 
oh man, try not to eat them all right now. 


  1. I've never baked with almond flour before but these look tasty and I might just try it:) Thanks for sharing!

  2. These look amazing!! And it's all ingredients I can find down here in Costa Rica (you can't find just anything!)

  3. I'm with you, I'm a bit pumpkin'ed out and it's only mid-October! Love apples, these would be a good weekend mix.

  4. i have few apples i need to use up, this looks fantastic.


I love hearing from all of you and greatly appreciate all your feedback and comments! xx Kristen
