Gluten Free Apple Streusel Muffins

These are a favortie at my house.  We eat a lot of quick breads & muffins for snacks.  These are both healthy & yummy.  They are also easily made dairy & soy free as well.  Don't let the long list of ingredients scare you, they are just a lot of whole grains which you will love.  The coconut flour is what makes them so moist, if you don't have any, I would recommend substituting it with 1/2 c. tapioca flour, yes, you have to use twice as much and starch isn't healthy - so go out and buy some coconut flour today! (I hate the flavor of coconut but I cook with it daily as flour and milk, who knew?)  

Gluten Free Apple Streusel Muffins

¼ c. coconut flour
½ c. tapioca flour
1 c. sorghum flour
½ c. millet four
½ c. teff flour
1 ½ tsp. xanthan gum                
1 T. baking powder         
1 ½ tsp. baking soda                 
1/2 tsp. salt                             
1 c. sugar
2 tsp. cinnamon               
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
3 eggs
¾ c. applesauce
6 T. olive oil
2 ¼ c. grated apples
Streusel Topping
½ c. sugar
1 t. cinnamon
¼ t. nutmeg
1 T. butter

Preheat oven to 350°. Mix dry ingredients. Mix wet ingredients. Mix dry and wet ingredients together. Fill muffin tins ½ to ¾ full. Combine streusel topping ingredients, and sprinkle on top of muffins. Bake at 350° for 20-25 minutes.  I like to make mini muffins.  However my mini muffin pans are from a Grandma and the pans are very old, and the size is a little bigger than the mini muffin pans now.  So, I don't really know how many muffins this makes, but it makes a bunch.  Pick your size muffin pan and just stick a toothpick in to test if they are done.

**Whatever you won't eat the first day, throw in a freezer bag.  They freeze great! 


  1. This looks really tasty but I will have to try to figure something out for the eggs??? Michaela can no longer have eggs in her diet :(

  2. Mary-
    I think these will work great with an egg substitute, let me know how it goes! I hope it works for you! I know EnerG has an egg replacer you can pick up at most health food stores and I think even Walmart carries it.
