Gluten Free Apple Cinnamon Walnut Flax Muffins

FALL is officially here in two days, September 22, YES!! I love the crispiness in the air, the leaves starting to change, yellow and orange and seeing some of the Fall produce out in the farmer markets and grocery stores. If you haven’t figured it out yet, this is one of my favorite seasons.

I love everything about Fall, from the decor, fashion and especially the food. Today I was inspired by one of my favorite fruits, Fall brings, apples.

My Gluten Free Apple Cinnamon Walnut Flax Muffins, screams FALL is here!! This recipe is very simple, super nutritious and above all, DELICIOUS. It makes a wonderful breakfast, loaded with good carbs, fiber and protein, but also a nice healthy snack for pre and post workouts.

If you’re not into walnuts, add your favorite nut, you can also add dried cranberries instead of raisins. If you have a nut allergy, leave the nuts out altogether. But above all else, enjoy them and remember to Set the Table with Love.
