gluten free and refined sugar free apple cinnamon muffins… buttery, moist, and topped with a sweet streusel crumble; these muffins taste like they came straight from the bakery!
well, it’s week 15 and baby is the size of an apple. week 15 just so happened to land on the exact date apple released the new iphone6. i couldn’t have planned it any more perfect myself. yes, i realize that was a week and a half ago and i’m a little behind on my blogging… i’ll catch up at some point before i pop this baby out! :)
it’s officially fall and the apple/pumpkin madness is in full force. if it was possible to overdose on apples, i’ve probably come close. not just any apples though; honeycrisp apples to be precise.
when i think of baking with apples, my mind instantly goes to my all time fave apple crisp recipe. if you havn’t tried it yet… it’s a must at any holiday gathering. it’s one of those recipes that no one would ever guess is secretly healthy… just like this apple cinnamon muffin recipe!
i was first introduced to these muffins by my friend’s 11 year old daughter, who made them all by herself. i probably helped myself to more muffins than i was welcome to… and then begged her for the recipe. so, on behalf of all my readers, thank you for sharing kailah. ♥
i made a few modifications to the recipe, swapping out whole wheat and pastry flours for all gluten free flour, and using coconut sugar to make this recipe 100% refined sugar free! i also loaded my favorite streusel crumble on top… yum. just, yum.
the final result was just as delicious as the original, but even better for you! the apples in this muffin keep it moist and delicious. i recommend not sealing these airtight when storing them because it will cause the crumble topping to become soggy. just lightly cover leftover muffins with foil or parchment paper and they will keep at room temperature for 5-7 days.
sneak peek… next week baby is the size of an avocado!!
