It’s the last week of our muffin of the week series (insert sad face here).

I really enjoyed this series, and it brought out my creative side having to come up with a new muffin recipe every single week!

In case you missed previous weeks, here are all the other muffin recipes from our MOTW series:

My favorite part of this series was enjoying an easy breakfast or snack that wasn’t packaged and made me feel amazing.

The whole point of the series was to get Crosby to eat more food, and so far he has loved every muffin recipe at least once, and that’s a win in my book!

How to make gluten free apple muffins

After I made my gluten free chocolate chip muffins, I fell in love with how soft and dense they were for being gluten free.

The texture was just spot on, and I was addicted!

I decided to use that same oat flour/coconut flour ratio to make up a batch of gluten free apple muffins. I love using oat and coconut flour to make muffins and baked goods gluten free.

I also use oat flour and coconut flour in my gluten free carrot cake. They pair wonderfully together and are easy to find and affordable, all things that I think are important for gluten free baking.

These muffins won’t win any awards for beauty, but they are delicious!

They are a twist between my wholesome carrot apple muffins and my gluten free chocolate chip muffins.

Using grated apple cuts down on the amount of oil used, while still resulting in super soft muffins.

My favorite way to eat these are warmed up with a bit of butter smeared on top.

It definitely doesn’t taste like I am eating a healthy snack.

Isn’t that the best kind of food?

The one that is incredibly healthy but tastes like a treat.

My favorite!

I don't have oat flour, can I substitute with almond flour?

I have not tried it with almond flour so I can't guarantee results.

Is there anything to substitute for maple syrup. I absolutely despise it and it seems to be in most of your recipes.

You can substitute honey. I use honey and maple syrup in a lot of recipes as they are more natural sweeteners.
