Apple Cinnamon Muffins

Just a quick post! One of my favorite types of muffin is apple cinnamon, so I thought I’d try out a batch of these. I used only one small apple for a dozen muffins, so it only adds about 2g carbs per muffin, so it’s perfectly reasonable (and not to mention delicious). Oh, and they are dairy free!

One thing you’ll notice right away about these muffins is the gorgeous dome. If you’ve made low carb/grain free muffins before, you’ll be glad to see it, because it’s difficult to achieve using almond or coconut flours. Don’t they look amazing?!

Eating healthy, for me, is about more than weight loss like it used to be. It’s about controlling my blood sugar levels and obtaining normal–or relatively normal–hormone levels. I still struggle to lose weight efficiently, but eating a wheat, sugar and gluten free diet helps to control some of the problems I’ve encountered with these health issues of mine.
