One-Bowl Triple Apple Cider Spiced Muffins

  • Yield: 12 muffins 1x


One-Bowl Triple Apple Cider Spiced Muffins are a super tender, totally healthy, and packed with all the flavors of fall. A gluten-free, dairy-free, grain-free recipe.



⅓ cup melted coconut oil, plus more for greasing

2 large eggs

⅔ cup unsweetened applesauce

⅓ cup pure maple syrup

¼ cup fresh-pressed apple cider

2 ⅓ cups almond or oat flour*

1 tablespoon cinnamon

½ teaspoon baking soda

½ teaspoon baking powder

¼ teaspoon kosher salt

1 cup finely chopped apple

Cinnamon sugar for topping, optional


  1. Heat the oven to 350F.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the coconut oil, eggs, applesauce, maple syrup, and cider.
  3. Add the flour, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Stir until well incorporated.
  4. Add the chopped apple, stirring until just combined.
  5. Fill each section of a 12-section greased or silicone lined muffin tin with roughly ¼ cup batter.
  6. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar, if using, then bake for 15-20 minutes, or until the edges begin to pull away from the sides and a toothpick comes out clean.
  7. Allow to cool completely in the pan, then serve or store for later.


*Make your own oat flour for this recipe by placing 2 ⅓ cups whole rolled oats in a blender and blending until a coarse flour forms. You can purchase pre-made oat flour at many grocery stores and natural food markets or online. If you are gluten-free be sure to buy oats that are specifically labeled gluten-free.

These muffins are super tender, so be sure to grease or line the muffin tin, and allow to cool completely for easy removal.

Not a fan of chunks? Skip the chopped apple for a smoother consistency.

These muffins freeze well, so make a double batch and freeze leftovers for up to 3 months.
