Why have I called it “Miniature” instead of “mini”? I don’t know. Just felt like I wanted to use the entire word today. It really rolls off the tongue.
Another experiment out of the Practical Paleo book by Diane Sanfilippo. These little beauties are my contribution to a weekend birthday brunch. They are not very sweet (good for us lo-carb folks) but they are moist and yummy! Especially with a pad of butter or coconut oil smothered in the middle! In her book, Diane calls these Apple Streusel Egg Muffins. But the second I took a bite, my first thought was BREAD PUDDING! They’re fluffy and light. I think they would also be great with some sort of coconut milk glaze-like drizzle thing. But we’ll get there another day.
I changed up the recipe a bit… little bit more of this and that. Enjoy!

3 large green apples, diced small
3 Tbsp. warm water

1/4 tsp. baking soda
pinch of sea salt
