Gluten free apple muffins are the perfect way to start out the new year. These gluten free apple muffins are packed with flavor and very moist. I also use Stevia in mine, trying to make them a little healthier for this new 2018 year.

My husband and I decided it is time to get back into better shape. So where ever we can eat a little healthier, we will do it. I love something that I saw the other day; it went like this, “not a diet, it is a way of life.” So after the holiday season, I wasn’t having a very good way of life. I was eating too many delicious treats.

Gluten Free Apple Muffins

It seems like we say, when Christmas is over, I will start eating healthier and then comes New Years; of course there is my sister’s birthday and my husband’s birthday. What about Valentine’s Day and then of course I must have a birthday too!!!

I can truly think of a lot of reasons to have a few extra treats. But we can all do this, and even if we have a birthday here and there, we can still have a piece of cake once in awhile. Then get back on to a healthier way of life and I am pretty sure that we will all feel a lot better.

So I felt like these gluten free apple muffins were a little healthier using the Stevia, the apple sauce, and the apples. And I don’t know if you are like me, but I have just a few pounds to get rid of! When I made brownies and chocolate covered nuts, I just couldn’t help myself!

What Ingredients Do I Need For Gluten Free Apple Muffins?

  • 3 cups Paleo flour (I used Bob’s Red mill Gluten Free)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 2 larger apples, peeled, cored and chopped
  • 1/2 cup applesauce
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil (I warm it in the microwave for about 20 seconds)
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 3 eggs, beaten

How Do I Make Gluten Free Apple Muffins?

  • Spray 2 regular size muffin tins with cooking spray.
  • In a medium bowl, place 3 cups Paleo flour, 1 teaspoon baking soda, 1 teaspoon salt, 1 1/2 teapoons cinnamon, and 2 large apples (peeled, cored and chopped).
  • In a separate bowl, mix 1/2 cup warmed coconut oil, 2 cups sugar, 1/2 cup applesauce, and 3 beaten eggs.
  • Then add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients. Mix just until blended.
  • Fill each muffin tin 3/4 full.
  • Bake at 325 degrees for 18-20 minutes.

 

I hope that you all enjoyed your New Years! It was a nice time for us. We did get to play a few games with the kids. I am glad that my family will sit down together and play a few games. I do love getting together and winning! Ha ha.

What Does it Mean if Something is Gluten Free?

  • Gluten-free means that the protein gluten is excluded.
  • Gluten is found in grains such as wheat, barley, rye.
  • A gluten-free diet is essential for managing signs and symptoms of celiac disease and other medical conditions associated with gluten.

Also, last night I decided to plug in the new alarm clock that my husband gave me. He didn’t like the other one that I had. It was very old and I almost came out of bed every time it would go off. (It was very LOUD!)

So I plugged the new one in and it was a process to get the alarm set, but my hubby helped me and we finally got it. Then when I was laying there in bed it was so bright on the dimmest setting, that I could see my hand. Now I don’t know about you, but when I go to sleep, I like it dark.

So this morning when my husband got up, he told me I will try that clock one more night and if it is as bright as I think that it is, we are taking it back. I wonder if green is just a lot brighter than red when it comes to light. My new one is green and the old one is red. Who knew? I will let you know what we find out! Happy sleeping and have a wonderful New Year!!!
