Cinnamon Apple Muffins by L.G.

Cinnamon Apple Paleo Muffins

2 c almond flour
2 c unsweetened finely shredded coconut ( I omit this )
4 eggs
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

Blueberry Muffins:
substitute 1/2 to 1 cup of blueberries for the apples
You could omit the cinnamon or swap it out for another spice

Peach Muffins:
substitute a cup of chopped peaches for the apples
could be really good with local Colorado peaches in the summer!

Nut Muffins:
omit apples
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
