As you know, unless you’re new to my blog (welcome!), I love making AIP baked goods. My own son is egg-free & grain-free, my daughter is dairy-free, and I seldom eat nuts or seeds. Plus folks doing AIP need the encouragement that great baked goods provide: healthy complex carbs, reliable recipes, something new and good to eat for breakfast!
Have one of these with a big ole sausage, and you’ll be set! They are moderately high in protein already, but I’m an advocate for emphasizing protein at breakfast, thus setting up one’s blood sugar for success the whole day.
They’re perfect for fall. And, as with many of my baked goods, most of the recipe is made in the blender; so the recipe’s easy! I created a new method with this particular recipe, making it that much simpler…because we’re all busy, and it’s tough squeezing in enough time to bake each week.
As you scroll down to the recipe, take a quick moment to appreciate with me our apple tree! I made these muffins with its apples, an espaliered tree my husband bought this year as my birthday gift. The tree was SO generous with us, its first year on our little patio, giving us well over 50 apples. What a thrill to watch one’s own fruit grow, pick and eat it.
…And I’ve had a few readers already ask me where to buy toasted carob powder. You can get it here. This is just carob, but the fact that it’s toasted makes it more digestible (and delicious).
Moist and delicious, these muffins also rise beautifully and keep their mounded muffin shape- a great texture!
