Paleo Apple Cinnamon Muffins
I will come clean right from the start. This recipe is not my own......in that it is a very slightly altered version of the absolutely amazing Apple Spice Coffee Cake by Danielle at Against all Grain.
My kids will often say over a meal they particularly like "YUM! Mummy is the best cooker". I won't give myself that much credit but I will say "I'm a pretty good cooker". There is a saying that 'cooking is an art, baking is a science' and this couldn't be more true than when you are dealing with food restrictions. I am a pretty good cooker but I'm not a great baker.
This has forced me to look to other food bloggers better than me at the science of Gluten free and Paleo baking.......and it doesn't come better than Danielle. I have tried a bunch of her baked goods recipes and been overly impressed every time. Her Apple Spice Coffee Cake is one of our favourites. So much so that I needed a travel version. Crazy I know ........
Now not all cake recipes can just be poured into muffin tins. Some need a little wigglin'. And that is the case for this recipe.
The changes are
Add 2 tbsp of coconut flour to the dry ingredients
turn down the heat on the oven by 25 degree
Now I don't recommend changing anything in her baked goods but if a couple of minor changes means I can eat it more often I am all for it. Thanks Danielle
