GF Apple Cinnamon Muffins

I love muffins. They're just so tasty and easy to grab for a quick snack or dessert. The other thing I love about muffins, is that the gluten/dairy free ones are actually still pretty tasty.

I've tried a couple different recipes but my all-time favourite gluten/dairy free muffin is the Apple Cinnamon one that my sister-in-law found and made for me shortly after Christmas. They are so good! They even made it into my Simple Pleasures - January post. When she made them for me, I basically devoured them within a week. And it's not like she had only given me six or something...

I made them again this weekend and while doing so, I realized that I hadn't blogged about them yet. How could I have not blogged about my favourite muffins ever?

Well here I am to remedy that fact. Delicious gluten free dairy free apple cinnamon muffins!

They're not too hard to make, even though they have a lot of ingredients. They are a little on the pricier side, since they call for walnuts and dairy-free yogurt, but to me they are worth it. They come together quickly, despite having to chop up the walnuts and apples.

I usually double the recipe so that I get more muffins for time invested. And really, doubling is pretty easy to do when you have all the ingredients on hand.

Another tweak I made to the recipe this time was replace the brown sugar with coconut sugar and I put less than they called for. I'm trying to cut back on my sugar intake so I've been tweaking a lot of my recipes lately.

I also decided that it was the perfect time to try out my new mini-muffin tin that Dan gave me for my birthday. Isn't it always the perfect time for mini muffins?

I was completely delighted with my little muffins and may have eaten a few too many. It's just so easy when they are bite size.

I only made a dozen mini ones and then almost two dozen big ones. I froze all the bigger ones and kept the small ones out to munch on over the next 24 hours. Although they didn't even last that long.

I totally recommend making these muffins, especially if you have dietary restrictions. They are so good, you can't even tell they are gluten-free. Which is a definite bonus since so many gluten-free foods taste like crap.

Did you get any baking done this weekend? Are you also a muffin lover? Or do you have another favourite baked good? I'd love to hear about it.


  1. I made Zucchini loaf yesterday. So much of it in the freezer. So yummy. Love apple muffins too.

  2. onesimplefarmgirl - I love zucchini loaf. I have to find a good gluten-free recipe and try making some. There's something so nice about having baked goods in the freezer, ready to snack on.
