Cinnamon Apple Paleo Muffins
2 c almond flour
2 c unsweetened finely shredded coconut ( I omit this )
2 large apple, cored, peeled, and diced (I omit this)
4 Tbsp olive oil
4 tsp almond butter
1/2 c blue agave sweetener (I use honey instead)
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp salt
a dash of nutmeg
I usually add in 1 c of blueberries or a mashed up banana.
Mix all dry ingredients first, then add the wet ones and divide evenly into a muffin tin. Bake 15 minutes at 375F. Makes 1 dozen.
The recipe can easily be halved, but fill the 6 unused muffin cups halfway with water so the pan heats evenly. I usually have enough to fill a large muffin tray up and they are good sized muffins. Yummo!
Some Bonus Variations
substitute 1/2 to 1 cup of blueberries for the apples
You could omit the cinnamon or swap it out for another spice
substitute a cup of chopped peaches for the apples
could be really good with local Colorado peaches in the summer!
increase olive oil to 3 Tbsp
add 1/2 c chopped walnuts or pecans
maybe add a little unsweetened applesauce too, if they are too dry
