Low Carb Cinnamon Apple Muffins

Whoever said you couldn’t eat muffins on a low carb diet (or any diet for that matter) hasn’t had one of these Low Carb Cinnamon Apple Muffins! They are the perfect little sweet treat to start the day! Soft and fluffy on the outside, golden on the top, and sweetened through and through with our new favorite 1:1 sugar replacement, Now Foods Organic Monk Fruit Sweetener.

Muffins get a bad wrap for being a sugar bomb that will spike your blood sugar and make you crash by 10 am. But when you swap out traditional sugar for low glycemic monk fruit sweetener you can wave goodbye to your need for a mid-morning nap. Instead, you will sail straight through to lunch because this easy-to-make recipe not only has plenty of fiber and protein to keep you feeling full, but it also has a warm cinnamon apple flavor that will definitely ensure your taste buds feeling satisfied, too! 

Each meal prep contains two, yes two, muffins, plus a side of yogurt and fruit. This is a breakfast combo that hits all of your macros and fits into your calorie goals. 

How to use monk fruit.

These Low Carb Cinnamon Apple Muffins are just one example of how we love to use the Now Foods 1:1 Organic Monk Fruit Sweetener. But, the possibilities are endless! Anywhere you use sugar is where the monk fruit sweetener can step in, no conversions needed. Just replace the amount of sugar called for in a recipe with the same amount of monk fruit. It doesn’t get any easier! 

Some other recipes we have swapped the monk fruit for are our cream cheese and fruit snack boxes, these tasty peanut butter and chocolate muffins, our weekend go-to Donut Holes recipe, and this keto vanilla chia pudding

Whether you are baking/cooking low carb, keto, vegan, gluten-free, vegetarian, dairy-free, or something else, this monk fruit sweetener will fit your needs. All we ask is that you save us a bite of whatever you make.
