  • Recipe Submitted by on

 Ingredients List

  • Wet Ingredients:
  • 1 cup applesauce, unsweetened
  • 8 Medjool dates, pitted
  • 1/4 cup avocado oil or coconut oil (melted)
  • 2 eggs, large
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • Dry Ingredients:
  • 2 cups whole wheat flour (I also recommend spelt flour)
  • 2 tsp baking powder, aluminum free
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp allspice
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp cloves
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • For the Muffins:
  • 1 + 1/2 cup sweet apples, cored & finely chopped with skin on (I used Red Delicious)
  • Cooking spray (I use Misto)
  • Cinnamon Sugar Topping (optional):
  • 1 tbsp cane suagr
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and spray silicone muffin tin with cooking spray. Set aside.
In a powerful blender or food processor, add Wet Ingredients and process until smooth. Mainly look for all dates to be processed. Set aside.
In a small mixing bowl, add Cinnamon Sugar Topping ingredients and mix. Set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, whisk to combine Dry Ingredients. Add Wet Ingredients from the blender into the bowl and gently mix just enough to combine. Do not over mix otherwise muffins won’t rise properly. Add chopped apples and give a few gentle stirs.
Fill each tin 3/4 full with batter, sprinkle with Cinnamon Sugar Topping (I left some for sprinkling after baking) and bake for 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the centre comes out clean. Let muffins cool for about 30 minutes and transfer to a cooling rack to cool off completely.
