Today, I collaborated with Ari to bring a tasty fall treat to you guys! These “Apple Spice Muffins” aren’t just any treat – their a healthy one! Most muffin recipes are loaded with refined sugars and ingredients that lack nutritional value, but these muffins provide you with healthy protein, fats and fiber! Plus if you’re anything like me you’re already over ALL of the Pumpkin Spice this and that, GAG! Trust me your tastebuds will think you’re eating a super delicious, moist muffin, but your body will definitely thank you.

Directions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Line a muffin tin with muffin liners.
  2. Peel your apples and finely dice them. You can use whatever type of apple you prefer – I used Gala apples.
  3. Mix together all of your dry ingredients (almond flour, coconut flour, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt) in one bowl, and the wet ingredients (eggs, coconut milk, coconut oil, maple syrup, apple cider vinegar, and vanilla extract) in another bowl.
  4. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, making sure to slowly fold in the dry mix. Continue to stir until the ingredients are combined well.
  5. Gently fold in the apples and walnuts. Stir until the apple and walnut pieces are spread out evenly in the batter.
  6. Place about ⅓ c. of batter in each muffin tin. Pop in the oven for 20 to 25 minutes, or until you can stick a toothpick in the center of a muffin and it comes out clean.
  7. Allow to cool and enjoy!
