Gluten Free Apple Muffins

Gluten Free Apple  Muffins

These gluten free apple muffins make the perfect breakfast, snack, or lunchbox treat.

Nothing says fall quite like apples. Well except maybe pumpkins. When it comes to fall food apples and pumpkins are definitely at the top of the list, but I think apples are my favorite.

Gluten Free Apple Muffins-

Last month we had a quick summer storm go through that had rain and high winds. We needed the rain, so we were thankful for it, but the winds caused damage to our oldest apple tree that was loaded with apples.

So, I could have done without the wind part. But when something like that happens you just figure out how to make the best of it. And really making the best of 100+ pounds of apples is really not that bad. There are much worse problems to have. ๐Ÿ™‚ And at least my family loves apples.

We ended up picking all the apples off the tree, trimmed it, and we are hope the tree survives. This apple tree has done so well the last few years, I really hate to lose it.

Since we had to pick all the apples off at once, my daughters and I have been coming up with all kinds of ways to use them. We dried some. We froze some. We made fried apples. And we have been coming up with all kinds of apple recipes to share here. Today we are starting with gluten free apple muffins.

Years ago, before we went gluten free, my sisters and I had an apple muffin recipe that we loved. I think one of my sisters originally found it, but we all made it for years.

When I was coming up with apple recipes to make a few weeks ago, I remembered the apple recipe that we used to love so much and realized that I had never converted it to gluten free. I knew I needed to fix that and come up with a gluten free version we could have.

The gluten free version turned out delicious! I used some of my favorite gluten free flours in these, including sweet rice flour. Sweet rice flour is great for recipes that you want a little extra light and fluffy. In these muffins it worked perfectly. The texture and taste was delicious.

These are a must try for fall!

  1. These are heavenly! My gluten loving friends and I (gf) both adore them. I do have a question though. Mine stuck so bad because the topping runs down and caramelizes on the bottom. Do you have that problem?

    • I am guessing you mean they stuck to the pan. I have had that happen when I overfilled them. And I use muffin liners because although you don’t have to, the pan is harder to clean if you don’t. I would try not filling them quite as full then the topping shouldn’t run off so bad. I am so glad you enjoyed them! I love hearing that non gf people enjoy my recipes. That is the true test of something gf being really good!

      • Ok great! Thanks! I made them for a coffee date (along with Flora’s pumpkin chocolate chip). The girls (all gluten eaters) destroyed them (along with the kiddos). They all want me to bake more. I say that is a serious win ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks again!
