Apple and Cinnamon Breakfast Muffins

I mentioned not so long ago that I was dreaming up all these muffin combos to feed Rosco so he doesn’t run out the door in the morning without having something to eat!

The muffins I posted were my blueberry, coconut and almond muffins (one of my all-time favourite food combos!), but another flavour I make for him every now and again are these apple and cinnamon muffins.

These have no oil in them, although they do have a bit of coconut sugar in them, but for most people’s tastes, I think it needs it. Plus, if you divide it over 12 muffins, it isn’t too much.

Apple and cinnamon is such a beautiful breakfast flavour….

Apple and Cinnamon Breakfast Muffins
  • 1½ cups gluten-free flour
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon (more if you like)
  • 1 cup rolled oats (gluten-free if you are not eating gluten)
  • ¾ cup coconut sugar
  • 2 flax eggs (2 tablespoons flax to 6 tablespoons water)
  • ½ cup almond milk
  • ½ cup apple sauce
  • 1 small- medium apple, peeled and grated
  • ½ cup walnuts
  • 1.5 teaspoons bicarb soda
  1. Preheat your oven to 180° C (355° F)
  2. Mix the flax eggs (put the flax and water together and stir for a few moments until the fax soaks up most of the liquid and you it goes a bit gloopy - if it doesn't go exactly like that, give it a few moments, but don't stress if it is a bit liquidy - it's just water and will be fine).
  3. Chop the walnuts into small pieces
  4. Place the flour and bicarb soda in the bowl and stir, before adding all the other ingredients.
  5. Place in the middle rack of the oven and bake for about 20-25 minutes.
