Paleo Apple Cardamom Muffins

What’s better than a warm muffin on a cold Autumn morning?! These Paleo Apple Cardamom muffins have the PERFECT amount of spice and the perfect amount of sweet apple flavor. And the pecans take it up another notch! They’d make a great addition to a special breakfast or even a Thanksgiving table! Holidays can be daunting for those of us who have diet restrictions or who just don’t want to go on a sugar and gluten spree. However, I’ve found that some of my favorite Thanksgiving dishes are even BETTER when recreated with healthier ingredients. There are so many ways to make food flavorful and amazing, while also aiming for nourishment. And though these muffins aren’t sugar-free and fall into the treat category, they’re still going to be easier on your body than eating muffins with a bunch of refined sugar, flour, and dairy.
