Paleo Apple Cinnamon Muffins
These delicious Paleo Apple Cinnamon Muffins are the perfect way to start the day. They are a quick grab and go breakfast recipe for busy weekday mornings but tasty enough as part of a weekend brunch.
Good morning, my friends! I have a little secret to share and I'm pretty excited about it. Spoiler alert: your mornings are about to get a whole lot better. ☕
I have a batch of fresh out of the oven Apple Cinnamon Muffins that are crazy delicious. They also just so happen to be paleo and healthy for you even though you would never know it.
Let me tell you all about them …
Remember last year when I shared my sister's amazing recipe for Coconut Almond Paleo Breakfast Muffins? Man, I love those.
And then a few weeks later, those Triple Chocolate Paleo Banana Muffins showed up and rocked my world. I was on a bit of a paleo muffin kick and made variations of them for months straight.
I thought it was time a shared one of my fav breakfast muffins recipes. Let me present to you, Paleo Apple Cinnamon Muffins.
Rather than using bananas (like in the other two recipes) I've used applesauce, and the result is muffins that stay moist and fresh for days.
This is weekday breakfast meal-prep at its best. Seriously, make a batch or two Sunday night and you've got breakfast covered all week long. If you're in the midst of back-to-school prep, this recipe's got you covered.
Normally, when I see words like paleo or gluten-free or vegan attached to baked goods I cringe a little. Are you the same? Most of my experience with healthy baked anything is that it is dry and makes me feel like I'm eating cardboard. I KNOW you know what I'm talking about. No one wants that!
I promise you these paleo apple cinnamon muffins are nothing like your average healthy morning muffins. The applesauce and chunks of apple keep them very moist. Chopped walnuts provide just the right amount of crunch. And a handful of chocolate chips gives them a fun bit of sweetness.
Plus, they're WAY more filling than a regular muffin. They're packed full of protein from the almond flour, eggs, and walnuts so they'll keep you going all morning long.
My new morning coffee love (aka Lattissima Pro)
This beautiful machine (did you see how pretty it is?) lets you make six pre-programmed drinks: ristretto, espresso, lungo, cappuccino, latte, and hot milk. In other words, you can have it all.
The Lattissima Pro combines the Nespresso capsule system with De'Longhi's Automatic Cappuccino System. This is how you get barista-style beverages in your own kitchen without any thought required.
The capsules are a fresh way to change up your morning routine. There are tons of different flavors and coffee styles to choose from. I usually opt for a bold flavored coffee, but it's been fun to try them all. Geek alert: I've been loving pairing my coffee to my breakfast. These Paleo Apple Cinnamon Muffins go great with gently vanilla flavored Vanilio. Mmm mmm.
