  • 2 cups apple sauce
  • 1 1/2 cups brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • 6 eggs room temperature
  • 3 1/2 cups Gluten-Free flour Melanie's recipe can be found on her website
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil melted


  • Preheat oven to 350F degrees
  • Place a dab (approximately 1/4 tsp) of coconut oil or butter in each muffin cavity of your pan and set aside. Paper muffin cups are not recommended and will result in a flatter muffin.
  • In a mixing bowl add applesauce, sugar, vanilla, apple cider vinegar, cinnamon, and eggs. Stir until smooth.
  • Add in flour, baking powder, and baking soda.
  • While mixer is still running, drizzle the melted coconut oil into batter. Continue mixing until well incorporated.
  • Place muffin pans in the oven until the coconut oil or butter is melted.
  • Once the oil/butter is melted, fill muffin cps with batter to 2/3 full. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar and bake.
  • Bake in a 350F degree oven for 18-20 minutes or until golden brown on the edges and cooked through in the center. Insert a toothpick in the center to test doneness. Toothpick comes out mostly clean with a few crumbs when fully cooked.


Muffins will release best if you let them sit in the pan for a few minutes before removing. If they stick, use a knife inserted around the edge to loosen.
