Paleo Apple Cinnamon Muffins

After recently making a cake with 3 cups sugar (it was so good, link posted soon!), I was feeling a little guilty. I searched for a healthier muffin recipe and landed on this amazingly simple 7-ingredient recipe. The bulk of the muffin is made up of almond butter which makes it a great choice for a morning muffin. Say goodbye to the 10 o’clock slump. 

I can’t wait to change the apple for zucchini or some berries. 
Can’t take the credit for this one! 
A big thanks to the Natural Nurturer who created this recipe. This is more of a thanks post to her.

Prep time: 10 min; Cook time: 20-25 min.

Makes 9 muffins


  • 1 cup almond butter
  • 1/4 cup honey or maple syrup
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 Tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup diced apples, divided (my favorite are Granny Smith)


1. Preheat oven to 350 F and line muffin tins with 9 liners
2. In a medium bowl combine all ingredients except for 1/4 cup of apples. Mix until batter is smooth. 
3. Pour batter into all 9 muffin cups. Then, top with remaining apples. 
4. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until toothpick inserted into muffin comes out just with a few moist crumbs. 
Store in fridge for up to a week.
