Apple Paleo Muffins

Apple Paleo Muffins

Apple paleo muffins are a great treat with breakfast or as an afternoon snack. And because they’re not too sweet, they make a perfect base for your favorite toppings. I love them warm out of the oven with a little ghee, a drizzle of honey, and a hot mug of cappuccino.

The secret to these quick apple muffins is getting the apple pieces small enough to cook through by the time the muffins are done. You can use a food processor or mini chopper, but I find using a grater is the fastest way to do this. Just peel the apple and grate it until you get to the core.

These apple paleo muffins are quick and easy to put together on a weekend morning. You can bake them for breakfast and put any leftover muffins in the freezer for grab-and-go breakfasts during the week.

    I just made these using maple syrup in place of the honey (only because I didn’t have enough honey on hand). I also added about a teaspoonful of vanilla extract and sprinkled cinnamon on top of each muffin before baking. They are wonderful! Thank you so much for sharing!

    So good! I added cloves and ended up using a mixture of honey and molasses since I was out of everything else. REALLY good! Thank you!

    I have some apple pulp that I’ve saved frozen from my daily juicing. (sweet red apples) I’m thinking to try this and see if it works without making it mushy. What’s your thoughts? I love to save pulp and reuse! Thanks for the recipe! I’m going to make some either way and freeze them for those sleepy mornings I can’t seem to put a nice breakfast together for my hunny. :)

      Jen, I have not tried this recipe with apple pulp, but it sounds like it should work. Make sure you drain or squeeze the pulp so it’s not too wet when you add it to the batter. If you try it, let me know how it turns out!
