Paleo Cinnamon Apple Muffins

When it gets cold outside, I usually prefer to eat a warm breakfast versus cereal or some fruit. On occasion, I am in the mood to fry up some eggs and bacon and the whole nine yards. But normally, I want something quick that won’t take much time or cooking. Muffins are the perfect solution for getting a healthy start to a busy day. I can make a batch of muffins on Sunday and have them waiting for me in the refrigerator. Then I simply heat up a couple up and eat them with a bit of butter or drizzled with honey while I drink my morning tea. They are a quick and satisfying way to start the day.

Paleo Cinnamon Apple Muffins
Apple and cinnamon were made to go together. I use so much more cinnamon in flavoring recipes since starting Paleo that I have started buying larger containers of it. You could say I’m a fan. To pair with the cinnamon in these muffins I added some unsweetened applesauce. I chose to use applesauce instead of chunks of apple so that the muffins would come out more light and fluffy.

These cinnamon apple muffins are fast and easy to make, and to top it off they are good for you. There is no need to bring out the mixer; these can just be stirred by hand. And they are ready in less than 30 minutes. So it doesn’t take a very big chunk out of your week to make up a batch, and then they are all set to go whenever you want one. You can grab one on your way out the door for a healthy breakfast on the fly, or I have even packed these for road trips as a snack. You can also freeze extra so they last longer! Have I not convinced you of their convenience yet?
