Gluten Free Apple Carrot Muffins


These easy and healthy gluten free apple carrot muffins are moist and make a great breakfast. This recipe is the best for quick and simple muffins. They are very similar to morning glory muffins.



1 cup Brown Sugar
2 large Eggs
1/2 cup Unsalted Butter, melted
3/4 cup Buttermilk
2 tsp. Vanilla Extract
1 cup Apple, peeled, cored and finely chopped
2/3 cup Carrot, shredded
1/3 cup Dried Shredded Coconut
2 cups Gluten Free Flour
1 1/2 tsp. Ground Cinnamon
3 tsp. Baking Powder
1 1/2 tsp. Baking Soda
1 tsp. Sea Salt


Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

Line 12 muffins cups with liners and set aside.

In the bowl of your mixer combined the brown sugar and egg until blended. Then slowly pour in the melted butter while blending. Next pour in the buttermilk and vanilla. Blend to combine.

Add the finely chopped apple, shredded carrots and shredded coconut. Blend until just combined.

Add the gluten free flour, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Blend until just combined. Do not over blend! You want your batter to be light and fluffy.

Divide the batter between 12 regular muffin cups.

Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes or until the muffins are golden brown.


If you want to drizzle frosting over the muffins mix 1 cup of powdered sugar with 1 tablespoon milk. Stir together until smooth and drizzle over each muffin.
