Ingredients

  • 5 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup finely grated apple (about 1 large apple)
  • 1 Tbsp. GF ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • Pinch of Himalayan salt
  • Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 F and line a muffin pan with parchment paper cups or grease well with coconut oil
  • In a medium bowl using an electric mixer whisk together eggs, maple syrup, olive oil, and vanilla for about 1 minute
  • Add apples, coconut flour, cinnamon, baking soda and salt, and mix until blended. Set aside for 10 minutes. The muffin batter will thicken because the coconut flour will absorb the liquids
  • Scoop the batter evenly into 12 muffin cups, about 1/3 cup per muffin and bake for 13 - 15 minutes, until the muffins become golden brown
