Simple & delicious Almond Butter Muffins !
Who doesn’t like muffins? They are sought after by kids and adults alike and my family is no exception. One batch of 12 muffins were gobbled up in minutes. They are also an option for breakfast for some of my friends. Not so much for me, but a muffin paired with a hot cup of coffee is definitely one of my favorites.
Today’s recipe is a special muffin that needs no oil or dairy and yet as delicate as any muffin you have ever tasted.
Are you interested in the details? Read on for more details or you can also check out my facebook page, but if you want to know the secret ingredients right away, it is Almond butter and applesauce. Applesauce is the binder ingredient and Almond Butter is the substitute for oil. You cannot possibly get a healthier muffin recipe than this.
Perhaps you can also add blueberries or cherries for a fruit flavored muffin. The part I really liked about this recipe is that it uses no oil and yet tastes no different than any other muffin in the store! Try this as your next breakfast or snack option. Your kids will like it and you can feel good without any guilt.
How to make apple sauce?
Boil 5/6 peeled, cored, quartered apples with, teaspoon cinnamon, a pinch of salt in 1 cup water. When it appears softened and cooked, switch off the heat let it rest for 20 minutes. Later blend them into a smooth consistency. Store this for up to a week in the refrigerator. This sauce can be used to prepare cake, bread or muffins.
