Gluten-Free Apple-Spice Muffins

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.

  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.

Review Body: I just made thes muffins. Very easy. Very healthy. I added raisins and chopped pecans but still they were just ok. I'm afraid my grandkids would take one bite and move on. So I drizzled them while warm with agave nectar. Much better for my taste. Almond flour is a great alternative to wheat flour.
