Apple muffins, sweet and tart

These muffins are super tasty; I can’t really explain how good they are. It’s important to use a tart apple to get a proper balance between sweet and tart.

Apple muffins

  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil (or butter)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup yogurt
  • 1/4 tsp almond extract
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 large tart apple (cored and diced)
  • 1 tbsp flour

Preheat oven to 350°F. Cream sugar and coconut oil(or butter), add eggs and yogurt, then almond extract and cinnamon. Add in dry ingredients, mix till mostly smooth.  Remove core and dice the apple(peeling optional), then coat the pieces with a tablespoon of flour before adding into batter. Fill evenly into lined muffin tin. Bake for 25-30mins, till top is golden brown.

      try it and tell me if the texture is ok, you’ll need to add another tsp of baking powder for leavening. but if u have like some nuts(any kind almost) around you can just grind them up in a food processor. nut flour makes things fluffier.
