Paleo Apple Muffins

Cathy White


Perfect for breakfast on the go! These are high in protein and fiber. They are a favorite to eat anytime.

Can substitute almond flour if you wish. I prefer the flavor of the ground cashew meal.

You can also substitute any other sweetner for the coconut sugar i.e. honey or agave nectar.

How to Make Paleo Apple Muffins


  • 1Preheat oven to 325°F
  • 2Prepare muffin tin with 11 paper liners for easy clean-up
  • 3Melt the coconut oil in the microwave. Put it aside to let it cool a little.
  • 4Finely chop the apple with the peel, in the food processor or hand chopper. Set aside.
  • 5In a bowl combine the cashew meal, baking soda, salt and apple pie spice. Set aside.
  • 6In a large mixing bowl, beat the eggs then add the coconut sugar, apple cider vinegar, vanilla, coconut oil and chopped apples. Mix until combined.
  • 7Now add the cashew meal mixture (dry ingredients) to the egg mixture (wet ingredients) and mix until well combined.
  • 8Pour the batter into prepared muffin tin. I usually get only 11 muffins, if you use a little less when filling, I'm sure you can get 12 muffins.
  • 9Bake for about 20-25 minutes or until when a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
  • 10Let cool and enjoy. Must refrigerate any leftovers.
