Gluten-Free Apple Cinnamon Muffins


This is a terrific recipe for a breakfast muffin! I had leftover apples from my apple cake yesterday so I decided to use them up in some of my favorite muffins.


The Ingredients!


First, whisk the egg (I just wanted to throw in an action shot!).


Next, whisk in the milk and oil.


Add the rest of the ingredients: flours, sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and grated apple. Mix well. Batter will be lumpy.


Pour batter into muffin pan. Fill each well about halfway so there is room for the topping.


Now we make the yummy topping!


Mix the brown sugar, cinnamon and pecans.


Sprinkle the topping on the muffins. I used my made it easier to sprinkle!! I always like any excuse to get my hands dirty while cooking!


It makes a wonderful gluten-free breakfast with the cranberry granola!


Look how beautiful they turn out!
