Healthy and Delicious Apple Cinnamon Muffins with Coconut Flour

I don’t know about you , but the smell of apples and cinnamon cooking together are a  hard one to beat. This recipe is a real winner in my house. They’re so moist and packed full of flavor.

Plus if you want something that kind of tastes like a cinnamon roll too , you can top these with homemade cream cheese frosting  with a sprinkle of cinnamon on top and wow talk about amazing!!  When I want something sweet but  I am not in the mood for chocolate this works for me!!!!!

Only one word describes these muffins, DELICIOUS!!!!

The thing I like about baking with coconut flour is that it is so rich in good fiber, protein and healthy fats that are easily digestible.  Coconut flour is also low on the  glycemic  index which makes this a great treat for diabetics to enjoy too 🙂
