Grain Free Toffee Apple Muffins with Coconut Flour

I love a muffin with lots of texture and fruit. These grain free toffee apple muffins are softened with apple sauce, sweetened with maple syrup and loaded with apples and raisins.
My grandparents used to eat homemade muffins every day for breakfast. It was my grandmother that showed me how one muffin recipe could really make hundreds of different types of muffins. She was the one who explained that the more fruit you added, the more leavening you’d need. More baking soda meant a fluffier fruity muffin. I made alot of muffins as a teenager and when I went gluten free, I discovered that Grandma’s Rules for Making Muffins still applied. This muffin is made from coconut flour, and you’ll find that the recipe is really similar to my Grain Free Raisin Bran Muffin and Grain Free Pumpkin Muffin. There’s lots and lots of fruit here, so you’re going to get alot of muffins. If you live in a warm climate, keep them in the fridge, for some reason, coconut flour muffins don’t keep well on my counter in Baton Rouge.
