Apple and Almond Muffins

These apple and almond muffins are sooooo divine and you won’t even know that they are gluten-, dairy- and refined sugar-free. They make a beautiful snack or dessert option, served warm with a dollop of Greek or coconut yoghurt mmm… If you are looking for the perfect recipe to convince a friend that gluten-, dairy- and sugar0free can taste just as good (if not better!) than the original, then these are an absolute must!
