Low-Fat Almond Muffins

IMG_9277EditedSuper simple Low-Fat Almond Muffins!
IMG_9270Edited I really like this muffin recipe because not only it is so simple, it is also light and refreshing. These muffins have a subtly nutty sweet flavor due to the combination of almonds and apple together.
IMG_9274EditedMake it gluten-free by using all ground almonds instead of plain flour.

I have used my homemade applesauce for this recipe.
