Grain Free Apple Streusel Muffins

 

These muffins are moist, delicious and taste like a dessert. But since they are made with almond flour and sweetened with honey, they are actually a healthy breakfast or snack. I like to use Honeycrisp apples, but you can use any baking apple. Any muffins that don’t get eaten right away can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days or freeze for a month. Enjoy!
