Apple Almond Butter Muffins

Whenever I do a community theater show, I do a lot of baking. The cast and crew need fuel and sugar for rehearsals at night! We’ve just started tech week for The Producers, which is affectionately known as hell week. It means long rehearsals every day working in the scene changes, lighting and everything else that needs to come together. It’s the final push before opening night! So I whipped up these healthy and incredibly tasty apple almond butter muffins to help keep the energy up through the long rehearsals. The batter was super easy to make.

When they came out of the oven, those babies were golden perfection. The toothpick test was the most reliable way to tell if the apple almond butter muffins were done. It should come out perfectly clean from the center of a muffin.

Once they cooled a bit, I could serve immediately. I packed them up though and brought them to rehearsal the next day. They went quickly which made me so happy. I love baking for people, especially my theater family. The best part was that these muffins tasted so decadent that no one could believe they were healthy! Enjoy, friends. xoxo

Ingredients
  • 1 3/4 cups quinoa flour
  • 3/4 cups dark brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons all-spice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 scant cup almond butter
  • 2 whole eggs
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 whole apple cored and diced small
Instructions
  1. Pre-heat the oven to 350 and line 22 muffin wells with paper liners (almost 2 full muffin pans). In a large mixing bowl whisk the quinoa flour, dark brown sugar, baking powder, all-spice, salt and baking soda together to aerate them. In another bowl whisk the milk, almond butter, eggs and apple cider vinegar together until smooth. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and whisk them all together just until a batter forms. Gently fold the apple into the batter with a spatula.
  2. Use a 1/4 cup measure to scoop the batter into each lined muffin well. Get the muffin pans into the oven to bake for 20-25 minutes. Check that they are baked through with a toothpick. If inserted in the center of the muffin it should come out cleanly. Allow them to cool in the pan for a few minutes.
  3. Let them finish cooling on a rack, then serve immediately! They will also keep for 2 days in an airtight container for an amazing and healthy snack any time of day. Enjoy!

    I love apple anything, the smell and taste is great. My son is gluten-free and I know how hard it can be to find things that taste good.
