Apple Cider Almond Mini Donut Muffins – Recipe!

Print Friendly

Apple Cider Donuts are a fall favorite, which I love.  I wanted to duplicate similar flavors, but with a less greasy alternative.  Muffins are an easy one-bowl preparation that are scrumptious to serve on the weekends.  So, I thought making Apple Cider Almond Mini Donut Muffins would be a nice twist to these popular treats.

This recipe is actually gluten-free because I used almond meal and a little protein powder, instead of all purpose flour.  The results are a little nuttier, instead of a traditional doughy center.  The apple cider essence is slight, but adds a nice flavor.

Bake a batch and save some for during the week when everyone is in a rush to get out the door in the morning.  I think they are perfect with a hot cup of coffee or nicely brewed tea.  These little muffins would make a great snack after school too.
