You may or may not have heard but an ice cream scoop is a great way to evenly measure out and dispense batter for cupcakes/muffins into the baking pan. I whipped out my trusty ice cream scoop this morning to make almond apple muffins (recipe courtesy of Everyday Paleo). They are very hearty and quite tasty--you definitely don't miss the sugar. The kids can't get enough of them! :) Oh, I made two modifications: I didn't have apples so I used a pear and I added a 1/2 teaspoon of nutmeg. I oiled the pan with coconut oil and they still stuck pretty badly so the clean up is going to be a task. For the future, I think, I'm just going to use cupcake liners--I have to remember to pick some unbleached ones up next time I'm at the grocery store.
