Paleo Apple Cinnamon Coconut Muffins

apple muffins 010

Remember that time three years ago when I substituted coconut flour for regular flour in a one-to-one ratio when making muffins and the first bite sucked every ounce of moisture out of my body?

I do.

In case you don’t remember, I’m referencing that time I made apple muffins.

They were…okay.

A little dry.

Dry like the Sahara is dry.

The other day I got a hankering for an apple cinnamon something or other, so I decided to make some muffins.

Based this recipe off of my old recipe…and it’s about 40 billion times more delicious and infinitely less dry.

Paleo Apple Cinnamon Coconut Muffins
Prep time
Total time
Apple cinnamon muffins made with coconut flour.
Recipe type: Breakfast Sweet Treat
Serves: 12
  • ½ cup coconut flour
  • ½ cup coconut oil
  • ½ cup maple syrup
  • ½ cup coconut milk
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp sea salt
  • 2 cups apples, chopped
  • 1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F
  2. Line a muffin tin with liners or parchment paper
  3. In a large bowl, mix your dry ingredients: coconut flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt.
  4. In a small mix your wet ingredients: coconut oil, coconut milk, maple syrup and eggs.
  5. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and stir until just combined.
  6. Fold in your shredded coconut and apples.
  7. scoop ¼ cup of batter into each muffin tin and bake for 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

These little babies stayed super moist even days after they came out of the oven.

These were a delicious way to use some seasonal fruits! They’d be a great light Thanksgiving morning breakfast…just sayin’.

      Hi Janine! I would bake them at 350 for about 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let me know how they turn out!
