These almond flour applesauce muffins are soft and tender. Made with natural sweetener and minimal oil, these muffins are healthy and filling. Try these lower carb muffins for breakfast or a snack!


  • 2/3 cup applesauce
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1 1/2 cups almond flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • ⅓ cup chocolate chips


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Line a muffin pan with paper liners.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the applesauce, egg, honey, melted coconut oil, vanilla, and apple cider vinegar.
  4. Add the almond flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and chocolate chips.
  5. Mix until just combined.
  6. Scoop ¼ cup of batter into each muffin liner.
  7. Bake for 19- 22 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into a muffin comes out clean.


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.
Feel free to use any chocolate chips you like. I prefer mini chocolate chips to get a little chocolate in every bite!
