Paleo Apple Muffins

Sometimes nothing beats a nice, warm muffin. Julie and I have these as part of our breakfast every day. And we often eat them for snacks as well. These muffins are delicious, very easy to make and easily modified. If you want low carb versions, you can leave the apples and/or  raisins out of them, and use less honey, or use stevia as the sweetener. Don’t want nuts? No problem. Leave them out.

 

I always make large batches and freeze half.
