These gluten free apple muffins are perfect for the week’s meal prep. I like to make them on a Sunday for easy grab and go snacks for the road or an easy recess snack for the kids.

Made with reduced sugar, they’re a healthier option that doesn’t go overboard with “healthy ingredients” that are the perfect segway for healthier eating for the little ones.

Tip: You could substitute the brown sugar for maple syrup as well, but I recommend substituting dry ingredients for similar dry ingredients (like brown sugar Swerve)
