COCONUT FLOUR: PANCAKES, MUFFINS AND MUG CAKES
I was very excited when I received Regina’s eBook Coconut Flour: Pancakes, Muffins and Mug Cakes for review. I like to bake healthy muffins & pancakes but sometimes it’s so hard to create healthy muffins that also have a great texture and taste.
So glad, I got her eBook! It makes gluten-free baking so much easier. I tried several of her recipes (including this healthy apple muffins recipe), and I can say that her easy to follow instructions make healthy baking much enjoyable and the results are delicious! 🙂
Her beautifully illustrated eBook includes 25 delicious coconut flour recipes of Muffins, Pancakes, and Mug Cakes – all gluten-free, clean eating and paleo-friendly recipes. She also includes mouthwatering pictures for each recipe.
How to Bake with Coconut Flour
It can be tricky to work with coconut flour especially if you don’t have experience working with it. Because of its highly hygroscopic nature, coconut flour absorbs liquids very well and can leave the batter to feel rather dry.
Regina has worked hours to do recipe testing and perfect her recipes in the eBook, so we can enjoy hassle-free baking with coconut flour. If you are looking for gluten-free and paleo-friendly recipes for delicious and healthy treats & pancakes, you have to check out her eBook. She also shares a video for making delicious grain free coconut flour pumpkin muffins. Her eBook is full of great recipes for pancakes, muffins and mug cakes. I tried one of each category, and the texture was perfect every time. I love the fact that all of the ingredients are clean & healthy, and I won’t feel guilty eating a muffin for breakfast or for an afternoon snack.

How to Make Healthy Apple Muffins
These Healthy Apple Muffins use coconut flour, coconut oil, applesauce and crisp delicious apples to make for a healthy, cozy fall treat. No flour, no sugar
- 1/2 cup coconut flour
- 1/4 cup tapioca flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1-1/2 tsp apple pie spice (cinnamon, nutmeg & allspice)
- 4 eggs
- 1/2 cup unsweetened (chunky) applesauce
- 1/2 cup coconut oil, melted
- 1/3 cup maple syrup
- 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup diced apples
- 1/4 cup chopped walnuts, optional
Preheat the oven to 375° F. Grease or line a muffin pan.
In a bowl, whisk together coconut flour, tapioca flour, baking soda, salt, and apple pie spice mix.
In another bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients (eggs, applesauce, coconut oil, maple syrup, and vanilla extract) until smooth and combined.
Add the flour mix to the wet mixture and stir until all lumps are gone. (Alternatively, you can blend all ingredients in a food processor or blender.)
Fold diced apples and walnuts into the batter by hand, set some aside for topping.
Divide batter into 12 muffin cavities and top each with a few apple and walnut pieces. Bake for 17-20 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Allow muffins to cool in pan for 10 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Store covered.
