Apple Muffins - Gluten Free --- Passover

Passover is next week and although my time is taken up with cleaning and shopping, I do find time to check the recipes, I posted last year on Comfy Cook.  I can't wait to make these again.  What a wonderful snack to have around while cooking in the kitchen. 

Apple Muffins Unlike Others You Have Had – for Passover – for Gluten Free

This is one of my favorite recipes.  In my opinion, these surpass, the apple muffins, I eat throughout the year.  The only reason, I do not make these all year, is to have them as something special for the holiday.  For those of you  who are gluten free or not, you could enjoy these, easily, twelve months of the year. 
 This is the original recipe from Tamar Ansh’s book.  It is online here with other of her recipes.  I suggest to everyone, this is a book you want, in your kitchen.  You do not have to be Jewish to make these recipes.  There is a photo of the muffins.  I will post mine but I froze one so I would have it left to take a photo, after the holidays.  It, obviously, got squished and is rather square.
I did not make changes to this recipe other than the kind of apples, I used.  I did not have green apples (I had one) so I used whatever I could find.

Apple Muffins              yields 15 – 20 muffins
4 cups green apples, peeled
and diced
1 cup sugar
2 large eggs, beaten
1/2 cup oil
2 tsp. vanilla
1 1/4 cups potato starch
2 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. cinnamon
1 cup white raisins, optional
1 cup chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 325 F / 170 C . 
Mix together sugar and cinnamon and toss with apples.
Set aside. 
Beat eggs with oil and vanilla by hand in a large bowl. 
Combine dry ingredients in a separate bowl. Set aside.
Add apples to the egg mixture. 
Stir in the dry ingredients mixture by spoonfuls until well combined.
Mix in raisins and walnuts at the end.

Line muffin trays with muffin holders. Fill each cup with batter almost until the top.

 Bake 25 – 30 minutes until tester in center comes out clean and muffins are light brown on top. Muffins fall slightly after they cool down.
