Paleo Apple Muffins

Posted on

The carrot cake recipe uses honey but 100% pure maple syrup seemed like a much better choice for these autumnal muffins. I used the exact same amount! It’s an easy sub and I think it blends better with the apple + cinnamon + nutmeg combination than honey does.

You can use any grade of all-natural maple syrup in these. You can’t really taste it through all the cinnamon flavor so I went with the standard Grade A Medium Amber kind that’s usually sold in grocery stores around here. I save the darker, stronger tasting and slightly more expensive Grade A Dark Amber kind for dishes where I want the maple taste to shine.

Paleo Apple Muffins

Ingredients

1 1/4 cups (125 grams) blanched almond flour
2 1/2 tablespoons (20 grams) coconut flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
2 large eggs (50 grams each, out of shell), room temperature
5 tablespoons (70 grams) refined coconut oil,
1/3 cup (106 grams) pure Canadian maple syrup
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 cup (90 grams) coarsely grated Granny Smith apples
1 1/4 cups (155 grams) Granny Smith apple chunks (about 1/4″)

Directions
 

 

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C). Line a muffin pan with 8 muffin liners.
  • In a medium bowl, mix together the dry ingredients (almond flour through nutmeg). Set this aside.
  • In a large bowl, mix together the eggs, oil, pure Canadian maple syrup, and vanilla.
  • Add the dry mix to the wet and mix just until combined.
  • Gently fold in the grated apples and then the chopped apples.
  • Divide the batter evenly among the liners, filling them almost full, and bake for 23-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
  • Let the muffins cool for 5 minutes in the pan and then remove to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • Store in an air-tight container at room temperature for 1 day or refrigerate for up to 4.

Best Restaurants in America If you eat out in the U.S.A. and want the best dining experiences possible, this guide is for you What makes a good restaurant a “best”? Food that’s better than just good, of course. A dining room and a level of service that suit the quality of what’s on the plate. A good wine list (which doesn’t always mean an encyclopedic one), good beers and/or cocktails where appropriate. And then the less easily quantifiable stuff: personality, imagination (or intelligent commitment to a lack of same), consistency. 101 Best Restaurants in America (Gallery) When we were a young website, way back in 2011, we drew up our first 101 ranking ourselves, making a list of the places where we, The Daily Meal’s editors, liked to eat. Taking into consideration our mood, our budget, and where we happened to be when we get hungry, how would we vote, we asked ourselves — not only with our critical faculties but with our mouths and our wallets? Where would we send friends? Where would we want to dine if we had one night in this city or that? By this method, we ended up with a shortlist of 150 places. Then we argued, advocated, and cajoled each other on behalf of restaurants ranging from old-fashioned to avant-garde, ultra-casual to super-fancy. Finally, we invited an illustrious panel of judges (restaurant critics, food and lifestyle writers, and bloggers) from across America to help order restaurants via an anonymous survey and tallied results to assemble a ranked list. Upstairs, the simple Scandinavian-style dining room is kitted out with tables that look like tangled tree trunks, carved by Tom senior. The ingredient-led 12-course tasting menu is constantly changing (you might spot one of the chefs picking a final herb flourish outside minutes before it hits your plate). Starters could include a mouthful of smoked eel and apple, or an exploding dumpling of ox cheek and lovage. A crapaudine beetroot slow-cooked in beef fat is meaty in texture as well as flavour, and local lamb is paired with turnip and mint. Even the bread with sour butter is sensational. Afterwards you’ll be grateful for the walk through the village to a pretty rose-covered house where some of the nine bedrooms have antique oak four-posters and copper bateau baths. Wake to the sound of cows mooing in the next field and head back to the inn for a simple breakfast of sheep’s yogurt with fresh berry compote and house granola or toasted brioche heaped with mushrooms and a duck egg. Unsurprisingly, the most talked about restaurant in Yorkshire is often full, so book it quick. By Tabitha Joyce.
