If weekends are the hardest for you, try some of these to help curve the desire for sweets.  My wife made some today and they are almost to good to be true.  Be careful you can still over eat on paleo treats like these.

Pre-heat oven to 350, place 10 muffin liners in muffin tin.

For the cake:  In medium mixing bowl whisk together almond flour, salt, baking soda, chopped walnuts, cinnamon and nutmeg.  In a small mixing bowl combine applesauce, grapeseed oil, honey and eggs.  Stir wet ingredients into dry ingredients and thoroughly combine.  Fill muffin tins and bake for 25-30 minutes.

For frosting: In a metal bowl whisk together almond milk, arrowroot powder, cinnamon, and maple syrup until you reach a desired consistency.   I like my frosting to be running, not thick like cement.

Remove muffins from oven and let cool 10 minutes, then frost and enjoy!


  • 2 1/2 cups blanched almond flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt
