As a mother, one of my goals is to raise fabulous little cooks and bakers so when they leave the nest they can create healthy and delicious meals. We took an old family apple bread recipe and went to town making it more healthy and gluten free.  The original recipe called for over two cups of sugar which is a lot of sugar.  I made my muffins with honey instead of white sugar to make them healthier.


3 cups of all purpose gluten free flour (if not gluten free use regular all purpose flour)
1 cup of honey
2 teaspoons of cinnamon
2 eggs
2 teaspoons of vanilla
1/4 cup of oil

1 cup apple sauce
3 apples, chopped (no more than six cups of chopped apples)
1 teaspoon of salt
1 cup of chopped nuts (optional)
1 teaspoon of baking soda


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2. In a large bowl, mix all ingredients until well blended.

3. Pour batter into greased muffin tins.

4. Bake for about 15 – 20 minutes or until a tooth pick comes clean.

Makes 18 regular muffins
