Simple Apple Spice Gluten Free Muffins Recipe

There is a return to Eden experience when you visit an apple orchard. On a recent Indian summer weekend we did just that, driving north to a farm, paying $20 for two empty bags, and Luc got in his trick or treating practice by stuffing the bags until the handles began to tear. You are in organic bliss with so many apples to munch on, and they definitely taste better when eaten directly from the tree. We sampled the varieties like some kind of fruit experts, pegged the apples at one another, got lost in the maze of orchards. At home we discovered that we had too many apples with not enough neighbors to gift them too. A good reason to test out recipes.

From tree to table.

We decided on healthy apple spice muffins, a simple recipe that inserts avocado oil over butter, honey and rice syrup versus excessive sugar, and whole wheat gluten free flour instead of white.
