6 tablespoons butter
½ cup honey
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 teaspoons baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt
1 cup brown rice flour
½ cup potato starch, cornstarch, or tapioca starch
2 tablespoons coconut flour
½ teaspoon baking soda
2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1/8 tsp. ground cloves
1 teaspoon xanthan or guar gum
½ cup buttermilk
¼ cup yogurt
1 cup chopped apples
Preheat the oven to 375 and line a muffin tin with wax paper liners OR oil it with olive oil.
Melt the honey and butter in a saucepan on medium low.
Pour the melted honey and butter into a bowl and add the eggs, vanilla, and salt. Beat with a fork, then add the baking powder and spices and beat with a fork until the baking powder is fully incorporated.
Add the remaining ingredients (except apples) and stir until combined.
Stir in apples.
Spoon into the prepared muffin tin.
Sprinkle with brown sugar and cinnamon (optional).
Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into a muffin comes out clean (a few crumbs are fine, so long as they don’t smear) and the muffins are lightly browned on top.
