Make the apple filling
Peel the chayote squash and slice the top and bottom off.
Cut the chayote into small squares
Place the chayote into a small saucepan with water and bring to the boil.
Cover and simmer for 8-10 minutes until soft. This may take longer depending how firm the chayote pear is.
Drain the chayote and place in bowl. Toss in the cinnamon and sweetener.
Set aside to cool.
Make the Muffins
Preheat the oven to 180C/350F degrees and line a muffin tin with 9 liners.
In a medium bowl whisk the butter and low carb sweetener together until smooth.
Whisk in the eggs, one at a time until light and fluffy.
Add the coconut flour, whey protein powder, baking powder, vanilla, almond milk and salt. Whisk to combine.
If the muffin mixture is too thick, add more almond milk.
Spoon the mixture into the muffin cases and bake for 25-30 minutes until the muffins are golden and firm.
Remove from the oven and allow too cool.
Cut a well in the muffins and set aside the sponge. It may need trimming as it will be placed back on top of the filling.
Spoon the chayote into the muffin well up to the top.
Place the muffin lip on top of the chayote.
In a small bowl, whisk the cream and vanilla extract until thick.
Spoon the cream into a piping bag.
Pipe the cream on top of the muffin. Sprinkle with cinnamon to serve.
