Applesauce Almond Flour Muffins

I have a recipe for almond flour muffins in my cookbook that I absolutely love. The only problem is, it calls for canned pumpkin and that can be hard to find in the grocery store during the summer! I decided to try the recipe with applesauce instead of pumpkin and I’m thrilled to say it worked perfectly!

Applesauce Almond Flour Muffins

I love all types of muffins but chocolate chip muffins are my favorite. Can you blame me? It’s like eating dessert for breakfast! If you’re not a chocolate fan like I am, you can also make these muffins with chopped walnuts, instead of chocolate chips. Or if you’re looking for a fruity recipe, try these strawberry almond flour muffins.

Tips for the perfect almond flour applesauce muffins

  • The muffins will brown significantly. Don’t worry- you haven’t burned them!
  • Be sure to use room temperature ingredients, so the melted coconut oil doesn’t solidify when mixed.
  • To quickly get your eggs to room temperature, place them in a bowl of warm water for 2-3 minutes.
  • Feel free to use any chocolate chips you like. I prefer mini chocolate chips to get a little chocolate in every bite!

Almond Flour Applesauce muffins in a pan

I recommend using a 1/4 cup measuring scoop to spoon the batter into the pan so you can fill the muffin cups evenly. I use paper liners so I don’t have to worry about them sticking to the pan. Plus, it makes clean up a breeze!

Almond Flour Muffin Substitution Ideas

  • You can make these into mini muffins if you prefer. In a mini muffin pan, add 2 tablespoons of batter per muffin and bake for 12-13 minutes.
  • You can use chopped walnuts or pecans in place of chocolate chips for a less sweet version.
  • Feel free to use agave, honey, or maple syrup for the sweetener. I’ve tested all three and you won’t notice much of a difference between them!
