  • 3 tablespoons coconut flour
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 3 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil of your choice (e.g., safflower, melted coconut or avocado)
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup coarsely grated tart-sweet apples (e.g., Gala, Braeburn)
  • 1 cup peeled, coarsely chopped apples
  • Optional: coarse raw sugar, for sprinkling on top (skip if strictly Paleo)


  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Line 8 cups of a standard muffin pan with paper or foil liners.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk the almond flour, coconut flour, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt.
  3. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture; Add the eggs, oil, maple syrup and grated apples, stirring until well blended. Stir in the chopped apples.
  4. Divide batter evenly between prepared cups.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven for 22 to 25 minutes or until golden brown, tops appear dry and a toothpick inserted near the center of a muffin comes out with only moist crumbs attached.
  6. Cool in pan, set on a cooling rack for 15 minutes, before removing from the pan.
