Such a busy week in my little world of Kelly! I managed to work 60 hours at the hospital (never again!) on top of attending classes twice a week, and all of that fun studying that goes along with it. For the record, colorful pens make studying a LOT more fun. Nothing like regressing back to those teen years, where you spent more time color categorizing your notes rather than actually studying any content… amiright?! And let’s all take a second and look at the beauty that is a salted caramel purdy’s chocolate, perched ever so gracefully and ironically over my vitamins notes.
It’s October and fall is definitely in the air. Leaves crunch between my toes as I walk to school with my pumpkin spice tea. I’ve had to learn to get used to walking in silence because my data is quickly being used up and sending my cell phone bill soaring high, so I no longer get to listen to my favorite channels as I walk to school 🙁 I actually use this time to practice gratitude, which is quite easy during the beautiful autumn season in Kelowna. Crisp, fresh air, and beautiful oranges and yellows every where you look! How can you not be grateful when you live in a place of constant beauty? I have yet to buy any new uggs and succumb to the white girl default, but my chucks are doing the job just fine. Pretty sure chucks are still part of the basic white girl club, but I haven’t seen too many memes with them, so I think I’m safe.
Apple cinnamon is bar none my favorite fall flavour. Yes yes yes, I love pumpkin this and pumpkin spice that, but there is nothing that screams comfort like warm apple pie! Here are some apple cinnamon muffins I baked up! The applesauce definitely adds a moisture and flavor you can’t beat, I may just have to go warm one up with some vanilla cupcake coconutter right now… BRB
These turned out moist and fluffy, and would be dynamite with some sort of frosting, but warmed up with butter and cinnamon will do the trick too. I was a little worried I added too much applesauce, but nope, the texture is perfect!
Apple Cinnamon Muffins
- 1 cup oat flour
- 1/2 cup almond flour
- 1/4 cup coconut sugar
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 2 tsp cinnamon
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
- 1/4 melted butter or coconut oil
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/4 cup chopped nuts (I used walnuts and pecans)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a muffin pan with oil of choice. Combine your dry ingredients together in a small bowl. In a separate bowl mix together the eggs, applesauce, butter, and vanilla. Mix dry and wet ingredients together. Add chopped nuts. Spoonful into muffin pan. Bake for 15-17 minutes. Let cool for a few mins then enjoy nice and warm with a glass of chai tea 🙂 Yields 8.
Hope you enjoy these, and if you do make these I always appreciate feedback!
