  • cup unsalted butter
  • 1 ½ cups whole spelt flour
  • 1 tablespoon allspice
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup honey
  • 1 small apple diced
  • 1 cup organic unsweetened applesauce I use homemade


  • Preheat oven to 350
  • Place the butter in a small saucepan and cook over medium heat until the milk solids start to turn brown on the bottom of the pan and it smells nutty. Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, allspice, baking soda, salt and baking powder
  • Make a well in the middle of the flour mixture and add in the eggs, honey and browned butter. Gently mix together, making sure not to overmix
  • Fold in the diced apple and applesauce until just combined
  • Divide the mixture among 12 muffin cups (roughly ¾ full). Bake for about 18 mins until they are a lovely golden brown
  • These can be stored at room temperature or frozen
