    These muffins are very nutritious and flavorful with just enough of sweetness. Accompanied with a banana and you are ready to start your day!


    • 3 cups blanched almond flour (I like Honeyville at Costco)
    • 1/2 tsp sea salt
    • 1/2 tsp baking soda
    • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
    • 1 tsp cinnamon
    • 1 tsp apple spice
    • 1/4 cup grapeseed oil
    • 2 tblsp agave nectar or honey
    • 2 large eggs
    • 1 tblsp vanilla extract
    • 2 medium apples, peeled, cored and sliced
    • 2 medium apples, peeled, cored and chopped
    • 1/2 cup pitted dates, chopped into 1/4" pieces
    • 3/4 cup raisins
    • Topping:
    • 1/4 cup Spectrum All Vegetable Shortening
    • 1/4 cup coconut sugar or crystals
    • 1/2 cup blanched almond flour
    • 1 tblsp cinnamon


    1. Preheat the oven to 350 F. Line 12 muffins cups or 24 mini cups with paper liners.
    2. Cream topping ingredients.
    3. In a large bowl, combine the almond flour, salt, baking soda, nutmeg, cinnamon and apple spice.
    4. In a blender, combine the grapeseed oil, agave nectar or honey, eggs, vanilla extract, and apples (sliced); process on high until smooth.
    5. Stir the wet ingredients into the almond flour mixture until thoroughly combined, then fold in the dates and chopped apples. Spoon the batter into the prepared muffin cups.
    6. Sprinkle the topping on each muffin.
    7. Bake for 30-45 minutes (mine bake for 30 minutes), until the muffin tops are golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean. Let the muffins cool in the pan for 30 minutes before serving.
