These muffins are really tasty and very easy to make! They are also pretty fast to whip up which is a total bonus! I’m usually baking with my kids so I try to keep recipes pretty simple and fast to make. My new baking buddy is my 5 year old who is pretty darn good at it actually. She is also now at an age where she understands that mommy doesn’t use any animal ingredient’s, so we are always putting in alternatives into our recipes. She even knew that we used flax in this recipe instead of eggs. I guess kids do pay attention to their parents!
Apple Cinnamon Muffins
- 2 cups spelt flour or brown rice flour
- 1/3 cup cane or sugar of your preference
- 1 tbsp ground flax (flax meal)
- 3 tbsp of water
- 1 cup almond milk
- Pinch of Himalayan salt
- Cinnamon to taste
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1 1/2 cups peeled & chopped apples ( I use Gala )
- 1/4 cup vegan butter, coconut oil or veggie oil
(Optional) Topping: 1 tbsp of cane sugar mixed with 1/2 -1 tsp of cinnamon
Preheat oven to 400 F. In a little bowl put the 1 tbsp of the flax meal (ground flax) and add 3 tbsp of water to it. Mix & let stand for a few minutes. Cream together the sugar and butter. Add in the flax and mix well. In a large bowl add the spelt flour, salt, baking powder and cinnamon. Mix well. Add wet ingredients to the flour mixture and mix well. Add in the chopped apples and give it a quick mix. Line your muffin tray with paper liners and fill them up with the yummy mixture. If you’re using the topping then sprinkle a touch of it on each muffin. Pop them into the oven and bake them for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.
