Apple Cider Muffins

Pin It
Apple cider is my favorite fall-time treat!  And though fall is quickly turning into winter, I just had to share this new twist my hubby created on our favorite standby Absolute Best Anything Muffins. 

Apple Cider Muffins

½ cup potato starch
1 tsp xanthan gum
1 TBSP ground flaxseed meal
1 TBSP baking powder
½ tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
¼ cup brown sugar
¼ cup applesauce
¼ cup oil
1 1/3 cup apple cider
1 medium apple, peeled and diced

In a medium bowl, whisk together dry ingredients (flour, starch, xanthan gum, flax meal, baking powder, salt and cinnamon).  In a seperate bowl combine brown sugar, applesauce, oil and cider.  Add dry mixture to wet mixture and beat with electric mixer for a minute or so.  Add in chopped apple pieces and mix by hand.  Scoop batter into lined or greased muffin tins.  Go ahead and fill the muffin cups fairly full.  Bake at 400 F for about 20 minutes.  This seems to make about a dozen muffins, but sometimes I end up with a few extras.
