Apple Raspberry Treats

Preschooler’s day care is nut-free, which means that breakfasts are limited to yogurt with honey and fruit, or stuff I can make ahead with coconut flour. Lately I’ve been making her fruit muffins with coconut flour, and today’s was an experiment that seems to have worked.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Start with your wet ingredients in a large bowl. Beat four eggs with a cup of applesauce and a half-cup of raspberry all-fruit spread–make sure to check your ingredients! In a smaller bowl, mix together a half-cup of coconut flour and a half-teaspoon each of baking soda and salt. If you want, you can also add a teaspoon of cinnamon, but I had cinnamon applesauce so I didn’t. Add your dry ingredients to the wet and whisk, then let it sit while you thoroughly grease twelve muffin tins (I prefer the silicone kind for paleo baking). When the tins are greased, whisk the batter again to break up the rest of the lumps. Pour it into your greased tins and bake for 12-15 minutes.

They didn’t rise as much as I like, but they’re soft and smell yummy, and Preschooler enjoyed licking the spoon!
