Paleo Apple Cinnamon Muffins

I didn’t want to eat eggs every morning for my 30 days of paleo, so I was excited when I found this recipe for paleo muffins! It requires almond and coconut flour, so it’s a good gluten-free recipe as well. I was able to find these flours at Trader Joe’s. The muffins came out awesome and I don’t think anyone would be able to tell that they aren’t made with regular flour (although I haven’t shared any of them yet…) This recipe made 7 muffins and they came right out of the pan with just coconut oil spray! Can’t wait to try some of the other paleo muffins I have been pinning (pumpkin, gingerbread…) 🙂
