If you could taste autumn, this would be it. With apples as the star of the show paired with a delicious cinnamon and maple icing, these muffins will be your new fall favorite! Enjoy as breakfast, snack, or dessert because they’re healthy enough!




Cinnamon Maple Icing:

  • 1/4 cup of coconut cream from a can (well mixed) – 54g
  • 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon powder (1g)
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup (48g)


  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Add all dry ingredients except apples (almond flour, tapioca, cinnamon, baking soda, nutmeg, salt) to a mixing bowl and whisk to combine.
  3. Add all wet ingredients (vanilla flavoring, apple cider vinegar, almond milk, maple syrup, apple sauce) to a bowl or measuring cup and combine. Add wet mixture to the dry bowl and mix until evenly combined.
  4. Chop apples into small squares and fold into the batter gently.
  5. Using a heaping spoonful, pour batter into a lined muffin tin filling almost all the way to the top.
  6. Bake for for 25 to 30 minutes  or until toothpick comes out clean.
  7. Make the cinnamon maple icing – add all ingredients to a small pan and heat over low/medium heat until slightly thickened (usually around 3 to 5 minutes).
  8. Once muffins are ready remove from oven. You can serve warm or cold. If warm, muffins will be softer and icing will be more melty. If served cold, after a few hours in the fridge, muffins will be more firm, but still moist. Your choice! Both ways are delicious.
