apple spice muffins

its getting colder lovelies! breakfast wont be as easier to eat on the run. in the summer, grabbing a banana or some berries on the way out the door is easy and the cooling properties of fruit are good for the body when its so hot outside. but what about in the winter, when your body needs warmth for breakfast. oatmeal you say. and i hear you oatmeal. but if your looking for something you can have on the go but it is healthy and gives you the warming properties and an extra morning jump start for your metabolism, i got something for ya. yesterday we went out to a farm in queens and ran a maize maze. it was so fun, and a perfect fall time outing. i love fall, while there i picked up a basket of Macintosh apples and brought them home for fun fall time cooking. i immediately thought about this breakfast treat. i immediately thought about these muffins. They have fruit for the vitamins, but also cinnamon and ghee that boost your metabolism in the morning. ghee is a clarified butter known for its warming qualities and used in ayruvedic cooking and even massage. i love it. and its a lot better for you than regular butter. i use organic brown sugar, but there is an even more pure form if the brown sugar called sucracet that you can get in a organic grocery store if you wanna spend waaay to much money for sugar. i also use soy milk, but you can use buttermilk if you want. i also substitute regular flour for spelt flour to eliminate gluten in these muffins. you can also use rice flour or just any old flour you want. these muffins are amazing, healthy, and a perfect substitute for a healthy winter breakfast on the go. heres what ya need. you need three bowls. and the muffin tin of course.

preheat oven to 375 degrees and pam your muffin tins.

2 cups spelt flour
1 tbsp baking powder
1/2 tbsp salt
