Muffins with maple butter

I baked these muffins last Thursday for the screening of Miss Representation (I hope you all can watch the documentary as it is great, and it is definitely food for thought!). I hosted a house party and invited my friends over. We had so much fun eating sweets and talking about feminism. I think they will be great for Halloween parties as well, so I submitted this recipe to the Spunky Coconut for the Halloween round-up. Make sure to check the compilation of great recipes on October the 26. If you bake these muffins, please let me know if you like them.

These muffins are plain on purpose to enjoy in tandem with maple butter (a new discovery in my kitchen to remember Canada)… you will love them.


1 cup almond flour

1 cup amaranth flour

½ cup golden flaxseed meal

½ cup  palm sugar

2 teaspoons baking powder

¼ teaspoons baking soda

Pinch of salt

½ cup grape seed oil

1 apple finely chopped

12 oz coconut cream

2 eggs

1 cup coconut flakes

1 teaspoon cinnamon


  1. Preheat the oven at 350 F (180 C) and get ready a muffin tray.
  2. In a medium bowl mix wet ingredients and on a large bowl mix dry ingredients.
  3. Blend the wet ingredients into the flour (dry) mixture with a handheld mixer or spoon until thoroughly combined.
  4. Incorporate the apple and coconut flakes and mix.
  5. Use an ice-cream scoop server to put uniform amounts of batter into each prepared muffin cup.
  6. Bake about 30 minutes or until you insert a knife or a toothpick in the center of the cupcake and this comes out clean.
  7. Let the muffins cool and decorate with maple butter.
