Very Apple Muffins (GAPS/Paleo)

very apple muffins

My 11 year old, Alaina, made muffins today.

She likes apple muffins, but last time I made them she said she wished they had more apples. Like mostly apples with a little bit of muffin :). So when she made the muffins today, she cut up 2 large apples to put in the recipe. She was SO right, these were delectable! They were so moist!

She did everything. She measured, mixed, cut, filled the pan, put it in the oven, set the timer, tested, put it BACK in the oven, and tasted :). She cleaned up, and took the photo. I didn’t have to do a thing. But she did let me eat a muffin.

I plan to put some different snacks/desserts on the blog eventually. But honestly what you see is pretty much the food we eat every day. And we’re busy! We have other stuff to do besides cook, so my recipes are simple.

I plan to do some recipes that are a little fancier when we get closer to the holidays. It helps me feel like I’m not missing anything!


*1/2 cup pasture butter -or- 1/2 cup coconut oil + 1/4 tsp sea salt

*1/2 cup honey

*3 pastured eggs, room temperature

*1 Tbsp vinegar

*1 1/2 cups almond flour

*1/2 tsp baking soda

*1 tsp cinnamon

*2 large apples, peeled, cored, and chopped

Warm the butter (or coconut oil) and the honey until just melted. Add room temperature eggs and other wet ingredients and mix. Combine dry ingredients together in a separate bowl, Add the dry ingredients to wet ingredients and mix well. Add chopped apples and mix. Pour into greased muffin tins (or use cupcake liners like I do). Bake at 350 degrees for 20-23 minutes. Makes about 15 muffins.

Happy Autumn!

    They sure do look tasty. The fact that they help us in the entire process makes it more wonderful ! They give us subtle feedback too to better the recipes šŸ™‚ Baby Girls are such angels šŸ™‚

      Ah, yes, my daughter is not so subtle :)!

      But I do rely on my family’s feedback on recipes. They’re picky. I know if they like something I make, it’s OK to put the recipe on the blog!

      Yep, she IS your girl! I think the busybody/independent gene might skip a generation.
