Healthy Apple Cinnamon Raisin Muffins
Warm, dense, spicy and sweet...these Healthy Apple Cinnamon Muffins are the perfect treat on a chilly morning or a wonderful snack when you need a boost of wholesome energy!
These muffins are so delicious. They're not too sweet and they each contain only 150 calories, 3 grams of protein and 3 grams of filling fiber. I made them to have on hand for snacks this week, but lets be real, I've been eating them with my breakfast.
I used a mixture of whole wheat flour, all-purpose flour and coconut flour, which gave this recipe a real hearty and dense texture. Don't get me wrong, I love a light and fluffy muffin, but I wanted a little more substance here with the whole grains and coconut flour!
I used a Macintosh apple because they tend to be a bit softer, but any apple would work! Just chop it up real small - you could even grate it. I'm just not fancy like that. But I did use fancy caster sugar, thanks to Michael's mom who got it for me for a gift! Caster sugar is a finer sugar, so it dissolves more evenly. It's wonderful for iced teas or meringues. Or these muffins! ;)
Serve these puppies with a schmear of buttaaa! You're livin'.
