Grain Free Apple Cinnamon Muffins!

I'm stuck inside because of this freakish hurricane..... Sooo, I figured I may as well take this opportunity to try out some new recipe ideas.   I found this apple cinnamon muffin recipe on wellness mama, and tweaked it to add some protein and changed a couple other things... Turned out pretty good.  You can freeze these bad boys, or just put them in an airtight container in the fridge, and grab a couple for breakfast on your way out the door.
You'll need:
3/8 cup coconut flour
3 scoops Vanilla Protein Powder (I use Body Fortress)
1 cup no sugar added/unsweetened applesauce
dash stevia
2-3 tsp Cinnamon
1tsp vanilla extract
2tbsp Coconut Oil (melted/liquid)
3 large eggs
4tbsp liquid egg whites
1tsp baking soda
Preheat oven to 400.
Grease muffin tin w/coconut oil (separate from the 2 tbsp in the recipe)
Combine all ingredients with hand mixer. 
Fill each muffin 'cup' 2/3 full. 
Bake 12-15 minutes.
Drizzle with honey or agave nectar if desired before serving.
Makes 15 servings.
