  5. Stir in 2/3 of the chopped apple.
  6. Pour into the muffin cases until each one is 2/3 full.

Recipe Notes

You can use an electric mixer to mix the batter.
If not using an electric mixer, you may need to use a whisk as the coconut flour will clump up when the wet ingredients are added.
This makes 8-10 muffins depending on the size and shape of your muffin tray.
