Last week I baked you muffins. Chai Spiced Gluten-Free Apple Pie Muffins to be exact. But they didn’t turn out that great.

Not that they were horrible or anything. They were just kind of…well…

Blah.

And when you’re eating chai spiced apple pie ANYTHING, healthy or not, it should be absolutely, positively, 100 % delicious. Don’t you think?!

Like this Chai Apple Pie Paleo Mug Cake I made for you this morning, and that my family gave our 8 thumbs up approval too. This guy not included {although he does love apples}…
