almond flour applesauce muffins

Oh oh muffins!  I used to avoid these little babies since I learned that they’re way worse for you than donuts.  How can it be true?!?!?  These muffins however are scrumptious and actually good for you.  No sugar, low carb, packed full of vitamins, a perfect run-out-of-the-door kind of breakfast.  Plus they make an excellent snack.  I’ve loaded these guys up with a dollop of applesauce in the middle, but you can omit that since there’s actually applesauce in the batter!

My baking staple of almond flour came to the rescue again….here’s the recipe!

What you need!
3 cups of almond flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp xanthan gum
1/2 cup of applesauce (unsweetened) + more for centers (optional)
1/2 cup ricotta cheese
3 eggs
1/2 cup of erythritol
1/4 tsp stevia

What to do!

1.  Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  In a large bowl, whip up the applesauce, ricotta cheese and eggs.

2.  Add the erythritol and stevia and combine until dissolved.

3.  In another bowl, add the almond flour, cinnamon, salt and xanthan gum together.  Quickly whisk together to get rid of any clumps.

4.  Add the dry ingredients into the wet and combine thoroughly.  Scoop into muffin tins until half way full.  Put a dollop of apple sauce in the middle and then top off until almost full (almond flour doesn’t really rise that much).

5.  Bake for 25-30 minutes or until slightly golden and toothpick comes out clean.  Enjoy!  Makes about 6 big muffins.

    As the person who destroyed your conceptions of (most store-bought) muffins, I’m TOTALLY absconding with this recipe – it looks deelish!
