For these apple almond muffins, I recommend using a deliciously green Granny Smith apple. These apples are among the low-sugar, low-carb fruit and are packed with fiber. Peel, core and grate the apple. Set it aside.
Shift the dry ingredients in a bowl. Fold the wet and dry ingredients together. Finally, stir in the grated apple. Fill your muffin liners and bake for 22-25 minutes or until the toothpick comes out clean.
These muffins taste great on its own. But for an extra punch of sweetness, feel free to drizzle these muffins with a sugar glaze.
