Apple Cinnamon Muffins


These are so good you will want to eat all of them as soon as they come out of the oven.  Did I mention the amazing way your house will smell when they are in the oven!!? OMG finger lickin' good!

photo.JPG3 cups blanched almond flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
1 ½ teaspoons ground cinnamon (a slightly heavy hand can't and won't hurt)
½ teaspoon kosher or sea salt ( I like to use Grey Celtic Sea Salt)
2 large eggs
½ cup Honey
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract (or perhaps a heavy measuring... so a little extra)
1 heaping cup pureed green apple (think applesauce consistency.  No they do not need to be peeled.  Just chop two medium green apples, de seed them and throw them in the Cuisinart food processor)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line 12 muffin cups with paper liners.
In the bowl, whisk together the almond flour, baking powder, baking soda, ground cinnamon and salt.
In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, Honey, vanilla extract and green apple puree. Stir the apple puree mixture into the almond flour mixture and blend well.  The batter will be thick so don't worry if you need to use a spoon to divide batter evenly among the prepared muffin cups.
Bake for 25 – 35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean. Let cool in pan for 15 minutes.

You will probably want to eat them all right away.  I probably gobbled three down when I first tried this recipe.
