Apple Walnut Muffins | Low Carb | Keto | Gluten-Free

Updated: Oct 7, 2019

I welcome you to try these low carb gluten-free Apple Walnut Muffins. They are the perfect fall breakfast or snack! Just the right amount of crisp apple are in these muffins, giving them that apple that you crave this time of year, and still keeping them low in carbs. The muffin itself is light and fluffy and flavored with cinnamon, filled with bites of apples and then topped with chopped walnuts. Fall is the time of year for wonderful apple choices. You can use your favorite baking apple in this recipe. Being in New York state, we have so many choices in our farmer's markets to choose from this time of year. I personally like Cortland, Macintosh,Granny Smith, Fuji or Gala apples for these muffins.

These muffins are definitely worth making! Your family and friends will love them.
