These are mostly made of nuts and apples. I found myself eating more of these than perhaps I would have if they were straight up flour, sugar, and such. If you want something sweet but want it to be a little healthier, this is a good compromise. They do have a little bit of a “healthy” taste because of the nut flour, but if you don’t mind that, they’re pretty good!
2 1/4 c. almond meal/flour
1/2 c. quick oats (I used Bob’s Red Mill GF quick oats)
2 T. ground flax seed
1/4 tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 c. coconut oil
1/4 c. maple syrup (I recommend the real stuff!)
1/4 c. non-dairy milk
1 tsp vanilla
3/4 c. finely diced apple with skin on (about 2 small apples)
1/2 c. walnuts or pecans, chopped
2 tsp sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
Combine all of the dry ingredients (almond meal/flour, oats, flax seed, salt, baking powder, and cinnamon in a large bowl.
Melt the coconut oil in a medium bowl. Add the maple syrup, milk and vanilla and stir. Next, add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir until everything is combined. Add in the apple chunks and the nuts and stir. Line a muffin tin with cupcake liners and fill to 3/4. Put a little bit of the cinnamon/sugar mixture on top of each one. The original recipe calls for more, but it was way too much and didn’t soak in. You may use more if you want.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees and bake for 15 minutes.
