Cinnamon & Apple Cornbread Muffins

low FODMAP diet snack - Cinnamon apple cornbread muffins

Fall is right around the corner which means cinnamon and apples aren’t too far away.  There is nothing better than a kitchen full of warm and cozy smells even if it is still 100 degrees outside!  One can dream, right?  I am counting down the days until we can go on an evening stroll and not die from the heat or mosquitoes.  In the meantime, I’ll be making this delicious low FODMAP diet snack which may surprise you as it has apples in the ingredient list!  Apples have recently been tested by Monash University and were given the green light in serving portions of 20 grams or 2 tablespoons for both Granny Smith and Pink Lady apple variety.  This might not sound like a lot but it’s the perfect amount for a recipe like this.  It takes just a few pieces of apple to really add complexity and flavor to a dish!


Apples can be FODMAP safe as long as you watch your portion size!

What do you look the most forward to as the season changes?  I love all things fall which for me includes fall spices like cinnamon, pumpkin spice, cozy sweaters and of course fall decor!  I am a sucker for traditions and we have friends who live in the Boston area who go apple picking every year.  We joined them a few years ago and had a BLAST picking apples.  Afterwards, we came home and made applesauce, apple crisps and apple pies.  It was such a cool experience for this Texas girl who has never even seen an apple orchard before!
