  • 2 small apple(s) cored and diced
  • 1 tablespoon(s) lemon juice
  • 5 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup(s) coconut flour
  • 2 tablespoon(s) cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon(s) nutmeg ground
  • 1 teaspoon(s) baking soda
  • 4 tablespoon(s) coconut oil melted
  • 1/4 teaspoon(s) sea salt
  • 1 package(s) paper muffin liners


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Spray a muffin tin with cooking spray or line with paper liners.
  2. Put the apples in a saucepan with the lemon juice and cover. Add enough water to cover half. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes, until apples are broken down. Transfer to a blender and puree until smooth. Leave in the blender and let cool for 5 minutes.
  3. When the apples are warm, add the remaining ingredients to the blender and puree on low until you have a thick batter.
  4. Pour the batter into your prepared muffin tin, filling each tin about ¾ full.
  5. Bake for 15-18 minutes, until muffins are well browned and tops are firm. Cool before removing from pan.
