DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Sift dry ingredients together. (This is important since the soy lecithin can clump).
  • Whiz wet ingredients in the food processor until combined, alternatively, use a stand mixer with whisk attachment.
  • Tip the sifted dry ingredients into the food processor or mixer bowl(switch to paddle attachment) and pulse or mix for a few seconds until just (really, just) combined.
  • Add apples and mix again until just combined. (Mixing too long will make these tender muffins a bit dense). The batter shouldn't be stiff, but definitely is not a wet batter.
  • Spoon batter into foil muffin liners; will make 24 mini muffins or 12 regular size muffins. (If using a muffin tin, grease it lightly first).
  • Bake mini muffins for 22-25 minutes, and regular muffins for 35-38 minutes.
  • If you used a muffin pan, let the muffins cool for a few minutes in the pan before tipping them out onto a wire cooling rack. Muffins made in the foil liners can be transferred to a rack right away.
  • Enjoy!
