Apple Cinnamon Muffins

I was inspired by the cooling weather, the smell of pumpkin spice candles and well, fall. I am a huge fan of winter and fall. I know, I am sorry - I am ONE OF THOSE people! I set out to make a delicious tasting muffin full of healthy ingredients and damn, they turned out SO GOOD. A perfect back to school snack or something yummy to grab on those busy mornings.

These are sweetened with maple syrup and monk fruit sugar, which is a sweetener that doesn't act like sugar in the body. It won't raise blood sugar levels and contains zero carbs. It's a great way to reduce sugar intake but still add sweetness.


*1 cup oat flour

1 cup quinoa flour

3 Shredded apples

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp vanilla

1 tsp cinnamon

1 tbsp maca

*1/3 cup of monk fruit sugar

1/3 cup maple syrup

2 tbsp chia seeds

3 tbsp water

1/4 tsp salt

1/2 cup chopped pecans

Crumble on top:

3/4 cup of whole oats

2 tbsp maple syrup

2 tbsp pumpkin seeds

1 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp vanilla

*You can blend oats to make oat flour

*may use more maple syrup if you don't have monk fruit sugar

Makes 12 muffins


Mix chia seeds and water in a bowl. Allow to sit.

Add flour, baking powder, cinnamon, maca, monk fruit, and salt in a bowl - mix well. Add in maple syrup, chia seeds and vanilla. Peel 3 apples and shred them into the bowl using a grater. Add in chopped pecans and combine it all.

Combine crumble ingredients together in a separate bowl.

Oil a muffin pan and fill with batter. Then top the muffins with 1 tbsp of the crumble.
