  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease an 18-cup muffin tin or line cups with paper liners.
  2. Combine diced apples and lemon juice in a bowl.
  3. Combine sugar and coconut oil in a large bowl and beat using an electric mixer until evenly blended. Add eggs 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla extract.
  4. Stir sorghum flour, almond flour, rice flour, xanthan gum, baking soda, ginger, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, and salt together in a bowl, making a well in the center. Pour sugar mixture into well and stir just until batter is combined; fold in apples and hemp hearts using a spoon or a spatula.
  5. Spoon batter into the prepared muffin cups, filling each 3/4 full.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven until tops spring back when lightly pressed and a toothpick comes out clean, 20 to 25 minutes. Cool muffins in the tin for 5 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • You can use any combination of ginger, cinnamon, and pumpkin pie spice, alone or in any combination, as long as you end up with 1 teaspoon spice. Chia seeds can be substituted for the hemp hearts. Either white of brown rice flour can be used.
  • You can spread the batter out over an entire baking sheet (lined with parchment paper) or spread it out as 3 to 4 long loaves over 2 baking sheets.
  • Never forget to add the xanthan gum to the dry ingredients when baking gluten free! If you add it to anything wet, it will turn the batter into a thick, snotty, taffy-like substance.
  • Always line your pans with parchment paper or muffin liners! Just forget about greasing and flouring (rice flour) pans. Gluten-free baked goods will stick!
