They are packed with chocolate chips, bursting with apples and have a hint of cinnamon… are you drooling yet? As a bonus, you home will smell amazing when you baking them.

Plus baking with vegetables or fruit adds moisture to gluten-free baked goods so they have the best texture and are extra tasty.  So we have apples 3 ways– grated, chopped and as apple sauce, because apple season!

You’ll need 14 ingredients all found in your pantry: gluten-free flour (we used GF Jules all purpose flour – affiliate link) , baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, eggs, butter or dairy free butter, sugar, vanilla, grated apple, chopped apples, apple sauce, chocolate chips and walnuts. (skip if allergic)

The batter is easy to make and comes together in about 10 minutes.

Then using an ice scoop or spoon, spoon them into muffin tins and top with lots of chocolate chips!

Then you bake for 30-35 minutes or until a cake tester comes out clean.

Pro tip: check at 25 minutes and if the muffins tops are “done” enough for you, cover loosely with foil for the last 10 minutes.

Let rest in the baking tins for 10 minutes or more, then move to a drying rack to cool.
