These healthy apple cinnamon muffins are hearty and made with simple pantry staples. They’re perfectly spiced and refined sugar free.
- 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
- 3 eggs
- 1/4 cup natural peanut butter
- 3 tablespoons agave nectar (honey or maple syrup is also fine)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 2 cups blanched almond flour
- 3 teaspoons baking powder
- 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 apple (I used honeycrisp but whatever your favorite apple is!)
- Preheat oven to 350F.
- Whisk together the applesauce, eggs, peanut butter, agave, and vanilla in a medium bowl.
- Add the almond flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt.
- Whisk until combined.
- Shred 3/4 of your apple with the large hole side of your box grater.
- Then, cut the rest of the apple into cubes to put on top of your muffins. Alternatively, you could put some shredded pieces on top, or just shred the entire apple. I like to have some cubes to garnish the tops, but either way, the muffins are delicious.
- Fold the apple into the batter.
Line muffin tin with parchment paper liners.
- Divide the batter into 12 muffins.
- Add the additional chunks or apple shreds on top of each muffin and bake for 25 minutes.
- Allow the muffins to cool for a few minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.
- Sprinkle with some additional cinnamon on top.
