Applesauce Muffins (Paleo)
Paleo baked goods have been very difficult for me to get used to. Almond flour and coconut flour are just not the same as wheat flour. Some of the things I've baked have been horribly dry and some recipes have you use a ridiculous amount of eggs and then they taste like...eggs!
These applesauce muffins were pretty decent (how's that for a rousing endorsement :). Nice and moist with a mild, pleasant flavor. They give me hope that I will start finding some good paleo baked good recipes. I also think I just need to train my palette to get used to these new tastes.
Since we are new to paleo I bumped up the sweetness from the original recipe and mixed my walnuts in rather than have them on top. From Gluten Free Homemaker
1 cup almond flour
1/2 cup coconut flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoon cinnamon
4 large eggs, lightly beaten
2 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup applesauce
1/3 cup honey
2 tablespoon coconut sugar
1/2 cup toasted walnuts, chopped
Preheat oven to 350
In one bowl whisk together almond flour, coconut flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon.
In another bowl mix eggs, applesauce, vanilla, honey and sugar.
Add the wet and dry ingredients and stir to combine. Add walnuts and mix in.
I used a silicone muffin pan. Fill 10 of the muffin cups and cook for 25 minutes. Use a toothpick to make sure they are cooked through and then cool on a wire rack.
