What you need:

  • Two Large Bowls
  • Measuring Spoons
  • Whisk or Large Fork
  • Muffin Pan
  • Cooking Spray/Oil
  • Scale
  • Baking Cups (Parchment or Foil are best)
  • Food Storage Container


  • 09-Apple-Muffins PaperChef Large Parchment Baking cups or Foil Liner Baking Cups are the best to use. They keep muffins from sticking to muffin tin sides.
  • To reheat muffins, place in microwave for 45secs to 1 min. Add more time as needed.
  • Chop apples into thin slices or smaller chunks, based upon preference. Two examples are provided in pictures. Red apples are cut into smaller chunks/slices (my preference) and green apples are cut into larger chunks.

**Do you need frosting ideas???**

Protein Frostings:

  1. 14g Protein Powder of Choice + 56g (1/4cup) Greek Yogurt + ½ to 1 tbs Almond/Coconut Milk + 1 tsp Stevia (Optional) + ½ tspVanilla (Optional)
