If you know me, you know I LOVE Panera. Mostly because of their baked goods. One of my favorite items that they have is their Apple Crunch muffin. It's so delicious and fluffy and tastes like apple pie in a muffin form. I wanted to recreate the recipe in a healthier, gluten-free way, and I think this recipe is SPOT ON to how these muffins taste! My husband tried one this morning and immediately said that I have to blog this recipe because they are THAT good. So here we go!
Makes 12-15 muffins
1 cup Pamela's Gluten-free all purpose flour
3/4 cup almond meal
1/2 cup oats
3/4 cup sweetener of choice (I used sugar but usually use stevia, but I'm all out!)
1/2 cup applesauce, unsweetened
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 small apple, chopped
Preheat the oven to 350. Spray a muffin tin or use lining.
Mix all the ingredients together except for the apple. Then, chop the apple and fold it into the batter. Pour into muffin tins and bake for about 20 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.
Enjoy warm! Store in the fridge for 4-5 days. These taste so good with a cup of coffee in the morning! I hope you all enjoy!
