Paleo Spiced Apple Muffins

I love spending my days with my precious baby girl, but I’m not going to lie… It gets boring. After spending the entire morning reading stories, tummy timing, and sounding like a broken record singing nursery rhymes (ok, a very off key broken record), I decided it was time to poke around the kitchen to find something yummy to make. I love having healthy snacks around so I don’t spend the day pining after the non-paleo snacks that live in the pantry. Muffins are great because you can alway double up the batch and freeze them for a snack time emergency or a rushed morning breakfast. A minute in the microwave and you have a delicious warm muffin!

Looks like my sous chef is bored and wants to go back to sing alongs with her tone deaf mommy:
