Healthy Apple Muffins - Conscious Cooking

Healthy Apple Muffins

These apple muffins will please your family. They are light and fluffy, slightly spiced and full of yummy apples. Children usually like apples and should enjoy these muffins. They are perfect for a morning or afternoon snack – or even breakfast – or to pack for the lunchbox.

They are made with spelt flour, spices like cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger. The sweetener I used is maple syrup and the fat is coconut oil. There are also two pastured eggs in the recipe and the muffins are topped with sucanat (or coconut sugar!).  If you rather skip the sugar part, please feel free to do so. I also used local apples.

My 3 year old loved them and wanted to eat two in a row! He was very happy to bring his muffins for snack at school and he even wanted to share with his whole class. In fact, since I provide snack for the whole class every month, I may do this batch of muffins for the class. I think they will enjoy them.

Recently, I also made chocolate chip muffins if you’re interested in trying them. I personally prefer apple muffins but I know many children prefer chocolate chips so just go to the recipe if you rather try that one.

These apple muffins are dairy-free. Enjoy!
