These flourless Apple Coconut Oil Muffins are one of my favorite treats to make in the fall! September through November is apple picking season, and whether you’re going to an orchard or simply grabbing a bunch of fresh apples from your local Heinen’s, I cannot think of a better recipe to make with this fresh-picked fruit.

Flourless Apple Muffin Ingredients

This recipe only requires 10 minutes of hands-on time, so your kitchen will be smelling like warm apples in no time at all! Plus, these muffins are loaded with healthy fat from Heinen’s fresh ground nut butter and Heinen’s coconut oil. Making a batch this season is simply a no brainer.

Can I Batch-Make These Muffins?
Yes! These muffins make a great snack for adults and kids. Simply make a big batch and freeze what you don’t eat right away!

Pro Tip
Any fruit can be added to this recipe! While apples are my favorite for fall, you can easily swap in figs or pears when winter arrives.

By Heinen's Grocery Store
In 1929, Joe Heinen opened the doors of a small butcher shop on the east side of Cleveland, Ohio, aiming to establish himself as the city’s purveyor of quality meats. As customers came into Heinen’s new shop for their meat purchases, they began asking him to carry groceries as well. Joe added homemade peanut butter, pickles and donuts and by 1933, business had grown enough to include a line of produce and canned goods. Heinen’s Grocery Store was born.
