Gluten-Free Apple and Cinnamon Muffins
Home-made muffins are a great healthy option for mums and children alike, they can be easily made in advance and frozen so that if you are in need of a fast snack you can either pop in the microwave for 10 seconds or take out in the morning and put in your lunch bag for later on. These muffins are super-fast and include basic ingredients, use fruit as a natural sweetener and are gluten-free!
2 cups ground almonds (or almond meal)
1 tsp cinnamon powder
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
1/2 cup walnuts, chopped (optional)
1 apple grated (keep juice)
Preheat oven to 180°C. Line the muffin pan with paper liners.
In a large bowl, mix the ground almonds, baking powder, and cinnamon.
In another bowl whisk together eggs, and oil/ghee. Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients and mix well. Add grated apples, including juice and walnuts, and mix together.
Divide the batter in muffin cups. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until muffins are golden brown. Yummy!!xx Dr Julie
