Healthy Cinnamon Apple Muffins

These spicy muffins taste like apple heaven. They are the perfect hearty breakfast, satisfying snack or delicious low calorie dessert, best of all you can make them in the blender.

 

When I weighed nearly 300 lbs I would eat the popular brand of packaged mini muffins and think I was eating healthy because after all, it was a mini muffin.  Little did I know then that those muffins have 5 teaspoons of sugar and 230 calories!  

This is my apple creation to add to the mix, but unlike the above mentioned pre-packaged muffins, you won’t find chemical crud in these.  They are healthy, amazingly moist and low calorie.

You are going to want to PIN these for later!

 

 

If you have a high powered blender you could blend an apple and make your own applesauce.  I didn’t make my own, so no judgement if you use store bought applesauce.  I used and prefer organic, unsweetened sauce.

Now, let’s get to the good stuff!

These are a great healthy snack!

 

I enjoy a couple muffins with some almond milk for a quick snack.  They also make a fantastic grab and go breakfast paired with a protein shake or a delicious dessert.

 

These Healthy Cinnamon Apple Muffins freeze beautifully!

Make a double batch and pop some in the freezer to enjoy later.

    These muffins sound delicious and I love that you have replaced all the bad ingredients with healthier ones. I never heard of coconut sugar before, I’ll have to check that out.

    I tried this one today, I made my own apple sauce. My oven is rather old so had issues with the cooking time. Was the finished muffins moist inside? Mine came out too moist despite I baked it longer than necessary and checked it with toothpicks. Is that normal?
    I followed everything except I used individual mini muffin mold and homemade apple sauce. I used large apple.

    1. They are moist, but not wet. The moistness could be the applesauce or if using a silicone mold vs muffin pan, I find molds help retain moistness.
