Applesauce is a wonderful "secret ingredient" for gluten-free baked goods. You can use store-bought sauce or make your own by pureeing chopped apples with a little bit of water and a squeeze of lime or lemon juice.


  1. 2 cups almond flour
  2. 1 teaspoon baking soda
  3. 4 eggs
  4. 1 cup unsweetened apple sauce
  5. 4 tablespoons melted butter
  6. 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
  7. 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  8. 1 teaspoon ground allspice
  9. 1 teaspoon ground cloves
  10. 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  1. Preheat the oven to 350º. In a large mixing bowl, thoroughly combine all of the ingredients. Pour the batter equally into a paper-lined muffin tin. They should be approximately three-fourths full.
  2. Bake for 15 minutes, rotating the pan halfway through. Remove from the oven and let cool for five minutes, before removing the muffins from the pan to a wire rack. Serve warm.
Make Ahead
The cooled muffins stored in an airtight container for 2 days at room temperature or frozen for up to 2 months.
