apple cinnamon muffins

Tuesday, November 5, 2013

Mmm, the tastes and smells of fall!  Autumn is my favorite season for so many reasons and one of them is the delicious & comforting foods of the season.  This muffin is no exception, it’s loaded with chunks of apples, cinnamon and nutmeg goodness.

I always try to tinker with the sugar content to get it as low as possible and still have it taste great (and sweet!).  For this recipe, I used a ½ cup of Stevia in the Raw.  You could also use either:
  • ¼ - ½ cup maple syrup (the tastiest option!  It also provides the tenderest crumb)
  • ½ cup brown sugar (packed)
  • ¼ cup Stevia in the Raw and ¼ cup brown sugar (to mask the stevia taste)
The raisins add some natural sweetness to the muffin too.  Either way, these muffins are a great after school snack or perfect for packing in lunch boxes.

This recipe makes 9 muffins but the recipe can easily be doubled or tripled.

¼ cup butter, melted
½ cup Stevia in the Raw (see notes above)
1 egg
½ cup buttermilk
1 cup gluten free flour (I use Glutino)
½ teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon ginger
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
1 ½ cups apple, chopped (I leave skin on and sometimes add a little more apple)
¼ cup raisins

1.)     Preheat the oven to 375°.  Line 9 muffin tins with baking cup liners.
2.)     Mix together the butter, sugar choice, egg and buttermilk. 
3.)     In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg.
4.)     Combine the wet and dry ingredients until thoroughly combined.  Mix in the apples and raisins.
5.)     Divide the batter into 9 muffin tins.

6.)     Bake for 20 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
