These Cinnamon Apple Plantain Muffins are made with green plantain flour and are free of all common allergens. They have a dense, moist texture and are only sweetened with apple sauce. These Paleo muffins are great for snacking, grab’n go breakfasts, or packing in school lunches.
I hope you all don’t mind, but I’m going all out on the muffin recipes! Even my husband noticed. But, only because he often does the dishes and my muffins are almost always made with silicone muffin liners. Great for baking, a bit of a pain to wash!
But, what can I say? Muffins are one of my favorite grab-n-go Paleo snacks. I love coming up with fun flavor combinations, making, baking and eating them.
These healthy, Vegan apple muffins are made with applesauce, green plantain flour, tapioca flour and ground flax. Plus a few other simple, wholesome ingredients.
And did I mention they taste amazing either drizzled in honey or frosted with coconut cream? Makes me feel like I’m eating a plantain cupcake, but without the sugar overload.
These easy apple muffins are:
- Gluten Free
- Oil Free
- Nut Free
- Only Sweetened with Applesauce
- Easy to Make
- Great for Toddlers and Kids

How to Make Apple Plantain Muffins
Because these muffins are made with plantain flour and applesauce rather than whole plantains and apples, this recipe can be made in a mixing bowl. No food processor or high powered blender required! However, you may use one if you wish.
First, preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Then, combine all dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl.
Next, add in the wet ingredients. Mix and then let the batter sit for 10 minutes to thicken.
Stir the batter once more, then pour it into a lined muffin pan. (I use silicone muffin liners.) This recipe makes 8 full sized muffins.
Bake the muffins for 20 minutes at 350 degrees. After baking, remove them from the oven and cool in the pan for ten minutes. Then, transfer them to a wire cooling rack and cool to room temperature.
