Apple treats are a huge favorite in our household, and these Gluten-Free, Apple Cinnamon Muffins have become a weekly staple because the boys LOVE them.
I don’t know about you guys, but the holidays are such a magical time for our family but they are also extremely hectic. I love these muffins because they provide all the holiday spice flavors you love, but they’re also quick and easy to grab when you’re on the go.
And if you’re anything like me, anything that offers the best of both worlds is a total win in my book. Between gift shopping, gift wrapping, card sending and then…well, life- an easy, healthy grab-and-go muffin is the perfect treat! These muffins are dense and filling. I’ll eat one in the morning with some cashew butter and be perfectly satisfied until lunch.
Try this recipe to jump start your holiday season.
Happy December 1st, everyone!

We are huge cinnamon lovers in this household so we use 1 tsp of cinnamon to give it a really rich cinnamon flavor, however, if you would like a more mild and traditional flavor, I would stick with 1/2 tsp cinnamon.
