1 1/2 c. apples , peeled and chopped
1 c. applesauce , unsweetened, all natural, organic
1/4 c. * apple juice concentrate , unsweetened, all natural, organic, thawed
1 3/4 c. quinoa flour
1/4 c. tapioca flour
2 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 c. agave nectar
Mix dry ingredients together. Stir in apples. In another bowl, mix wet ingredients, add to dry ingredients. Stir until just mixed. Pour batter into muffin tins lined with muffin cups about 3/4 full. Bake at 375 degrees for 20 minutes or until done.
Variation 1: I ended up using home-ground quinoa meal and also replaced the tapioca flour with arrowroot flour. The mixture ended up very dry, so I added 1 cup apple juice. Soft and sweet - yummy. Oh yes, I also added 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar to help them rise a bit better.
Variation 2: I followed this recipe exactly and used two kinds of apples, macintosh and golden delicious. They don't look that exciting as I take them from the oven, although they smell great! The flavor is fairly bland; next time I'll add some agave nectar, too.
