Servings: 12 people
- 4 apples - any variety works, I used both green and red
- 2 carrots
- 2 cups oat flour
- 1 cup almond flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon apple pie spice
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1 pinch salt
Preheat your oven to 350°F. Prepare one muffin pan by spraying with oil. You can also use a nonstick muffin pan in which case you will not have to grease it.
Chop your carrots and apples into chunks, removing the core and stems. Add these chunks to your food processor and pulse until they are a grated texture.
Whisk all wet ingredients and let sit as you prepare your dry ingredients. The flax will thicken the mixture slightly as it sits.
Whisk all dry ingredients well, making sure there are no clumps. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and pour in your wet ingredients. Mix until just combined. Do not overmix.
Fold in your food processed carrots and apples, again do not overmix.
Spoon your muffin batter into your muffin cups. You want to fill them very high as these muffins will not rise very well on there own.
Bake in the center of your oven for 35-40 minutes or until they are not wet to the touch. Once they are done baking let them sit for 2 minutes on the counter. Then carefully flip your muffin pan and dump the muffins upside down on a clean towel. This will ensure the muffin bottoms do not become soggy as they cool. Allow muffins to cool upside down on a towel for another 3-5 minutes before enjoying.
Enjoy these muffins warm with a small amount of dairy-free butter.
They are best kept in a sealed bag or container in your fridge. To reheat, cut in half and broil.
