Gluten Free Apple Cinnamon Muffins with Coconut Cream Frosting
Let’s talk about my new FAVORITE fall muffins! Apple Cinnamon Muffins with Coconut Cream Frosting that are gluten free, refined sugar free, delishhh and also super easy! Like throw everything into a food processor easy.
I make these muffins for me and Luca for breakfast or a snack. You can always reduce the sugar and skip the coconut cream frosting for the little ones. They are the perfect texture and just sweet enough!
And when it comes to blenders and food processors, there are a ton of options at so many different price points. At the end of the day, you want one that gets the job done. I used the Oster Pro Blender with Texture Select Settings and Food Processor Attachment that is a budget option that works! This new Oster Pro Blender with Texture Select Settings gives you more control by allowing you to choose the texture of your smoothies, sauces, salsas, soups or batter. I use this food processor weekly for pancake batter, chocolate avocado pudding, guacamole and creamy soups!
