Description

Gluten free, dairy free spiced apple muffins made from pumpkin seed flour with mahlab added for a unique flavor. Try them topped with coconut oil.


Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 C pumpkin seed flour (or any other seed/nut flour)
  • 1/4 C coconut flour
  • 1/4 C + 1 Tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 C apples, diced into 1/4 inch pieces
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/4 C maple syrup or honey
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp ground mahlab, optional
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp cloves
  • pinch of salt

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 325ºF.
  2. Place apples and 1 Tbsp coconut oil in a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Cook down apples, stirring occasionally, for about 20 minutes or until softened.
  3. While apples are cooking, use a mixer to combine wet ingredients (1/4 C coconut oil, eggs, and maple).
  4. Use a fork to combine dry ingredients (pumpkin seed flour, coconut flour, spices, baking soda, and baking powder.
  5. With mixer on lowest setting, slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients. Mix until well-combined.
  6. When apples are finished cooking, stir them and any juices by hand into the muffin mixture.
  7. Line a muffin pan with paper baking cups. Use a spoon to transfer the mixture to the muffin pans. It should make about 10 muffins.
  8. Bake muffins 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

Notes

If you can’t find mahlab, you can either just leave it out or substitute a few drops of almond extract.
