1 3/4 cups bulk whole wheat flour

1/2 cup organic coconut sugar (sucanat or cane sugar)

2 teaspoons bulk cinnamon

2 teaspoons aluminum-free baking powder

1/4 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon fine salt

3/4 cup organic unsweetened almond milk

3/4 cup organic unsweetened applesauce

1/3 cup organic avocado oil (or canola)

1 cup organic grated apple, lightly packed


1 container @kitehillfoods Plain Cream Cheese

3/4 cup organic powdered sugar, sifted

1/2 teaspoon pure organic vanilla extract

1/2 teaspoon bulk cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon bulk ginger

1/8 teaspoon bulk nutmeg


  1. Preheat oven to 350° F. Line a 12-ct muffin tin with muffin liners. In a large mixing bowl, fully combine the flour, sugar, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda & salt.
  2. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the milk, applesauce & oil. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry bowl. Stir until just combined. Fold in the grated apples until evenly distributed.
  3. Evenly distribute the mixture into the muffin tin so that the batter is about 1/4-inch from the top. Bake for 20-24 minutes. Let cool in the muffin tin for 15 minutes, then move to a cooling rack.
  4. Add cream cheese to mixing bowl; beat until smooth & creamy. Slowly add the sifted powdered sugar & combine until smooth. Add in the vanilla & spices, then beat again until smooth. Spread on cooled muffins, serve & enjoy!
