Apple Cinnamon Muffins Recipe

  • Author: Dr. Josh Axe
  • Total Time: 35 minutes
  • Yield: 12 1x
  • Diet: Gluten Free


These apple muffins are much healthier than anything you’d find in stores. They’re made with Paleo, gluten-free flour, natural coconut sugar, eggs and coconut oil. They’re yummy enough for dessert, but good as a mid-afternoon snack or quick breakfast on the go, too.


  • 3 cups Paleo flour (or buy a version in-store or online)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 3 apples, peeled, cored and finely chopped
  • ½ cup coconut oil
  • 1 cup coconut sugar
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon


  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F and fill cupcake pan with liners.
  2. Mix flour, baking soda, salt and apples in a bowl.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix coconut oil, coconut sugar, eggs and cinnamon with a beater. (Or use a stand-up mixer.)
  4. Combine both bowls and mix until just combined.
  5. Fill cupcake liners 3/4 full and bake for 25 minutes.
