An Apple a day keeps the doctor away – Delicious apple muffins

Do you know the saying? Apples are said to be very healthy and I have summarized all the important facts for you in my new blog article summarized. But back to the basics, our new Muffins recipe. Of course, with delicious cinnamon crumble. They give the little beauties their final touch.

For the Muffins You don’t need much for the batter, starting with a flaxseed egg for good binding, fine spelt flour or gluten-free flour blend, sea salt, baking powder, baking soda, apple cider vinegar, raw cane sugar, bourbon vanilla, plant milk, applesauce and 1 ½ cups of apples, grated or chopped.

The Good News? The dough does not need any oil at all and still tastes juicy and full-bodied.

The crumbles consist of tasteless oil, fine spelt flour or gluten-free flour mixture , oat flakes, walnuts, cinnamon and raw cane sugar. Well, is the water in your mouth already running together?

Surely you are wondering why I use applesauce in the dough this time. It is an excellent Egg substitute in vegan cooking and provides a great binding and juiciness. The apple flavor really doesn’t interfere here either, though it also dissolves during baking in other recipes and is a great neutral binder.

What goes well with our apple muffins? One Scoop of vanilla ice cream is my favorite combination. Alternatively, they taste wonderful with powdered sugar with a cup of coffee, Golden Milk or a creamy Chocolate Chia Smoothie .

We summarize: The muffins take just 35 minutes, including prep time, and get by with 10 ingredients. 2 bowls, 1 muffin baking sheet and go!
