Apple cinnamon muffins

Recommended Posts

Now that the weather is turning colder I'm getting the urge to bake yummy things. I tried this recipe and loved it, and my six-year-old and her friend both gave it a thumbs-up. I entered the recipe in the Sparkpeople recipe calculator, and it says 8.1 g carbs, 2.6 g fiber, and 7.6 g fat per muffin (recipe makes 12). Next time I'm going to try subbing pumpkin for half of the applesauce.

Thank you, I have printed it out and will give it a try!  Sometimes I just want a bit of sweetness that makes me feel normal.

This sounds good and not really too many carbs either :)

yes you can also sub the honey if you actually used it as it was optional for a bit of sf sweetener . This sounds yummy and  it is only actually 5.5 net carbs each so less than you thought!!

This looks like a good one to try! How was the texture sometimes coconut flour can be a little dry. What did you think??

The texture was definitely different than using regular flour. It was spongy and seemed like it should be really moist, but it wasn't--not dry, but not moist, either.

 

I made them again this morning using pumpkin. The pumpkin is drier than applesauce, so I added some water and also some vegetable oil; didn't measure, just kept adding until the texture seemed right. They needed 7-8 extra minutes to bake, and they aren't as sweet--with a little added sweetener I think they would be awesome. I'm holding myself back from going to the store just to buy eggs so I can try again! (Yes, I tend to get a bit obsessed when I find something good.)

Coconut flour is extremely absorbent, and every recipe I've seen with it has lots of eggs. The first time I used it I didn't realize this and just subbed it in for regular flour--ended up with a bowl full of crumbs and didn't know why until I went online and started reading.
