Apple Cherry Spice Muffins

Last week I didn't really get the chance to post any recipes. I felt guilt. It was Sunday evening and I wanted to bake, so I grabbed some ingredients from the pantry and got to work. It had been a long day, a long week. It was time to greet the season. We took out decorations and placed pumpkin spice candles on our tables. That's when I realized I wanted to create a recipe using autumn spices. That's how I got inspired to make Apple Cherry Spice Muffins. I had a huge jar of Eden Foods Organic Apple Cherry Sauce in my refrigerator, and it was one of those ingredients I wanted to incorporate into the recipe. To be honest, I have never been a fan of applesauce, but the combination of apples and cherries was intriguing. Surprisingly, it added a nice touch to the recipe, making it unbelievably versatile. These muffins can be easily enjoyed as a quick snack, breakfast, or dessert by adding a scoop of vanilla ice cream. The possibilities are endless...


 1 ¼ Cup Gluten-Free All Purpose Flour
½ Cup Gluten-Free Rolled Oats
¾ Cup Granulated Stevia
 1 ½ Teaspoon Baking Powder
½ Teaspoon Xanthan Gum
½ Teaspoon Nutmeg
¼ Teaspoon Salt
 1 Teaspoon Cinnamon
 1 Cup Eden Foods Apple Cherry Sauce
½ Cup Melted Fat Free Butter
 2 Large Eggs


Mix dry ingredients in a large bowl (flour, oats, stevia, baking powder, xanthan gum, nutmeg, salt, and cinnamon). Add apple cherry sauce, melted butter, and eggs. Mix thoroughly. Line a muffin tin with baking cups and evenly divide the mixture. Bake at 350°F for 70-80 minutes or until inserted toothpick comes out clean. Serve... Enjoy!

Makes 12 Muffins

Note: Stevia can be substituted for regular sugar if you prefer. Same goes for the butter.
