There are many health benefits to eating apples. One of the most important health benefits of apples is that they are a good source of fiber. 

Fiber is essential for keeping your digestive system healthy. Apples also contain potassium, vitamin C, and antioxidants, which are vital for a healthy body.

3 steps to an easy gluten-free blueberry apple muffin recipe

Start with mixing the dry ingredients; flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt.

In a separate bowl, whisk the wet ingredients; dairy-free milk, maple syrup, olive oil and a flax egg.

Add the wet mixture to dry ingredients and mix to combine. Overmixing will make the muffins dense and heavy, so do not overmix the batter.

Once the batter is mixed, gently stir in the fruit, and the batter is ready for baking. So simple, even novice bakers can’t fail.

Best time to eat muffins, morning or evening?

There’s no definitive answer when it comes to the best time to enjoy a muffin, but most experts agree that they are most satisfying in the morning or as a snack later in the day.

However, some other gluten-free options for breakfast or snacks are chia puddings, or overnight oats.

Finding gluten-free muffins that are healthy and also delicious can be a challenge. However, these blueberry apple muffins are worth trying. 

Best of all, these plant-based muffins are easy to make — just mix everything in a bowl, pop them in the oven, and voila! 

The last time I made these insanely good muffins for my family, they were fighting over the crumbs. Enjoy!
