  • Total Time: 45 minutes
  • Yield: 12 muffins 1x


Units Scale
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk (you can use regular milk if you are not on a dairy-free diet)
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 cups gluten-free baking flour (I used Bob’s 1-to-1 Gluten-Free Baking Flour)
  • 1 apple, chopped into very small pieces
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/3 cup olive oil or melted coconut oil
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten


  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F. Spray a muffin tin lightly with nonstick cooking spray and set aside.
  2. In a small pitcher or bowl, combine the milk and lemon juice. Stir to combine and set aside.
  3. Then, in a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, apple, sugar, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, and sea salt. Stir to combine.
  4. Stir in the almond milk mixture, oil, and egg.
  5. Then, divide the batter between the muffin wells.
  6. Bake for 25 minutes, or until the muffins are cooked through and a toothpick or fork inserted into the center of one comes out clean. 
  7. Let the muffins cool for a few minutes in the tin. Then, remove them and serve warm or at room temperature.


  1. You can use any type of red or green apple in this recipe.
  2. Store any cooked muffins in an airtight container at room temperature for 2 days or in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. You can also freeze any leftover cooked muffins in a ziptop bag for up to 2 months.
