Hazelnut Applerose Muffins

Those small, round, soury-sweet goodies come in many different forms and flavours. I love them any time of the year since apples are incredibly versatile and delicious. Often I use them to substitute eggs in the form of apple sauce but today I decided to give them a more prominent role in my recipe for you guys. And since I am not a fan of halfassing stuff I arranged them in a pretty way to really let them shine!

In my opinion hazelnut applerose muffins are the perfect snack any time of the day and they sweeten up my day with their autumn flavours and beautiful rose form. This way the transition to the cold season is much easier for me, especially when I enjoy a cup of hot coffee or tea with my muffin. The roses might look like a lot of work but in reality they are pretty easy to make and the recipe is a quick one. So you will always find the time to whip up some pretty muffins for you and your loved ones.



90g grated hazelnuts

60g rice flour

60g millet flour

60g potato starch

60g corn starch

100g sugar

1/2 teaspoon xanthan

3 teaspoons baking powder (15g)

1/8 teaspoonbaking soda

1/8 teaspoon vanilla

1/4 teaspoon salt

some fresh lemon zest

** for 6 muffins **


240g grated apples

2 apples sliced with skin

60g water

120g oil

2 teaspoons lemon juice


Preheat your oven to 170 °C degrees.
Cut 2 apples with their skin on into slices and roast them with a little oil in a pan to make them flexible.
Mix all of your dry ingredients in a mixing bowl and grate some lemon zest on top.
Peel 240g of apple and grate them on top of your flourmix. Add 120g of oil, 60g of water and 2 teaspoons lemon juice. Mix everything to form a homogenous dough.
Divide your dough into 6 muffin cups. Starting in the middle you now will form roses with your apple slices. Be sure to arrange the apples with the skin side on top so it is visible and press them in a round form slightly into the dough.
Bake your muffins for 20-25 minutes and test with a wooden stick if they are done before taking them out of the oven. When they are a little cooler you can sprinkle some powdered sugar and cinnamon on top if you desire a more christmasy taste.
