Low-Carb Apple Spice Muffin

Move over, Pumpkin 💁‍♂️

By this point in the season, it’s about time we’ve moved on from pumpkin and give apple a chance … blueberry will just need to wait.

After having so many pumpkin treats like our Pumpkin Chip Cookies and Pumpkin Fat Bomb Fluff / Mousse Cups, it almost seemed unfair to not honor Apple in our Fall Favorites.

I know, I know … apple (and most fruit, really) is NOT something you normally think of when you think KETO or low-carb because of the high amount of natural sugars, but everything in moderation … balance!  Just be mindful with your servings or maybe you carb-cycle every now and then.

Let’s get to the recipe:

Ingredients - Apple Spice Muffin
Ingredients – Apple Spice Muffin

Ingredients

  • 2 and 1/2 cups Almond Flour
  • 3/4 cup Sugar Substitute (Erythritol / Stevia)
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon Himalayan / Sea Salt
  • 1/4 cup Grass-Fed Butter or Coconut Oil, melted
  • 4 Large Eggs
  • 1/2 cup Unsweetened Almond Milk(I used unsweetened vanilla.)
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1 Small Apple (your choice)

 

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350º and prepare muffin pan with papers or spray with oil.  Easiest clean-up with a silicone pan such as this one.
  2. Combine the almond flour, sugar substitute, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt until well blended.  Whisk in the butter or coconut oil.  Mixture will appear mealy.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs, almond milk and vanilla extract.
  4. Pour egg mixture into the dry ingredients and stir together.
  5. Stir in diced / peeled / seeded apple.
  6. Spoon batter into muffin pan, filling each until 2/3 to 3/4 full.
  7. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until the top springs back when lightly touched.
  8. Allow to cool 5-10 minutes then transfer onto a cooling rack.
