One-Bowl Triple Apple Cider Spiced Muffins are a super tender, totally healthy, and packed with all the flavors of fall. A gluten-free, dairy-free, grain-free recipe.
I don’t know about you, but cooking with apples is one of my favorite things about fall.
We live in the Pacific Northwest, and there are just so many fresh, juicy varieties to choose from.
Some years we make our way out to the orchards for a day of apple picking, but even when we miss peak season, I’m always sure to grab a bag from the market every single time I go.
Combine this apple love with our family’s obsession with muffins, and you have yourself the perfect combo.
One-Bowl Triple Apple Cider Spiced Muffins truly taste like fall all wrapped up in a tiny little bundle, and are absolutely bursting with apple.
First, these guys are naturally sweetened with applesauce, and then get an extra hit of sweetness from pure apple cider.
Then little apple pieces are folded throughout, making for the ultimate triple apple experience.
I made a batch for our annual pumpkin carving party in October, and have made several batches since.
We just can’t get enough!
I hope you’ll make these soon. If you do, be sure to share it on Instagram and tag me at @realfoodwholelife so I can see!
