Apple Nutmeg Muffins

I love muffins. It's no secret. Growing up, my mom often made muffins to go along with dinner. I rarely saw her open a cookbook, instead she'd just start throwing ingredients in a bowl and when the timer dinged, she'd pull delicious muffins out of the oven. I loved the nights she'd make them.

These muffins remind me a lot of the ones she used to make. She claims now that she doesn't bake and that these are so much better. She's lying. She's an awesome cook and baker, but I do try to save her some of these when she visits. That's easier said than done with 3 kids and a hubby who swarm the kitchen when the timer dings.



Apple Nutmeg Muffins

2 cups gluten free flour blend
1/2 tsp xanthan gum
1T baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
5T sugar
1 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 apple, peeled and diced
1 egg
1 cup milk
3 T oil

cinnamon sugar for sprinkling

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Spray a muffin tin and set aside. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, xanthan gum, baking powder, salt, sugar, nutmeg and cinnamon. Add diced apple and stir to coat apple pieces. Add wet ingredients and stir until combined. Spoon into prepared muffin tin. Sprinkle the tops of the batter with cinnamon sugar mixture, if desired.

Bake 20-25 minutes. Makes 24 muffins.
