Grain Free Apple Pie Muffins

INGREDIENTS

Apple Filling

2 cups small diced apple

1/3 cup water

1 tsp cinnamon

pinch clove

pinch nutmeg

1/4 cup Truvia or sweetener that equals 1 cup sugar

2 tsp cornstarch

 

Muffin

1/2 cup applesauce

1/2 cup milk of choice (I used almond milk)

2 eggs

1/3 cup vanilla whey protein

2 cups cashews

1 tsp baking powder

pinch cloves

pinch nutmeg

1/4 tsp salt

1/3 – 1/2 cup sugar (Truvia is twice as sweet as sugar)

 

DIRECTIONS

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a small saucepan, put in all the filling ingredients except the cornstarch. Cook over medium heat for just a few minutes until apples are just tender. Whisk in the cornstarch. You can  dissolve the cornstarch in a bit of water first if you like, but I just quickly whisked it in. Mixture should thicken almost right away. Set aside

Place all the muffing ingredients in Ninja or Magic Bullet. Process until smooth. Spoon out 2/3 of the mixture into 12 parchment lined muffin cups.

Spoon filling into cups, then top with remains batter mixture.

Bake for 20 minutes.
