I like to bake up a batch of these super easy Paleo-friendly apple muffins then freeze ’em for quick breakfasts or snacks.



  • 2 cups almond flour (or oat flour for nut-free version)
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 large apple, grated and drained (any variety will work here)
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil or ghee, melted, plus more for greasing muffin tin


  1. Prepare: Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. With melted coconut oil or ghee, grease 9 cups of a muffin tin
  2. Make muffin batter: In a large bowl, combine flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon, whisking to combine. In a separate bowl, toss the grated apple with the lemon juice. To the apple mixture, add the eggs, honey, and coconut oil or ghee and stir to combine. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients, stirring until thoroughly combined. Using a large ice cream or cookie scoop, fill muffin cups 3/4 full
  3. Bake: Bake for 20 – 25 minutes until golden brown and toothpick inserted in center of center muffin comes out clean. Cool on wire rack


I usually wrap the cooled muffins individually in plastic wrap and freeze them. Defrost in the microwave for 60 seconds on 50% power, then toast and spread with ghee. Mmmmmmm……
