Grain-Free Cinnamon Muffins

I adapted this recipe from Nuts.com, making it dairy-free, and taking out the walnuts since I’m not a big fan of nuts in baked goods. All I can say is…YUM!

Recipe: Grain-Free Cinnamon Muffins (makes 9-10 muffins)

2.5 cups almond flour

1/4 tsp salt

1/2 tsp baking soda

1.5 tsp cinnamon

2 eggs

1/2 cup refrigerated full-fat, unsweetened coconut milk (make sure it’s stirred up)

1/2 cup pure maple syrup

For the glaze:

1 TBSP cinnamon

2 TBSP pure maple syrup

1 TBSP coconut oil

Preheat oven to 325 degrees and line a muffin tin with liners. In a large bowl, combine the dry ingredients. In a separate bowl, combine the eggs, coconut milk and syrup. Add to dry ingredients and stir until combined. Pour into muffin tins and drizzle glaze over each muffin. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until toothpick comes out clean.

    My daughter is coming home from SE Asia after a 6 mth trip and Apple Cinnamon muffins are her favorite!!
    I would like to put walnuts or pecans in so how much? Also, would almond milk work?
    Thanks!!

      I would say a cup of nuts, and you could might be able to replace almond milk for the coconut milk, but I’m not sure if it will give the muffins the nice moist texture that that coconut milk does?

    Where do you purchase your almond flour? It is very expensive at each store I price it out at…..it would be great to know if you have any secrets to eating well and keeping the costs to a family budget.

    Thanks

    Made these last night exactly as your recipe and they are AMAZING! They taste like a hot cinnamon roll right out of the oven! They are gone already after my family tasting them last night, breakfast today and a snack for me. This is a great recipe because I always have all these items on hand to make them. I love your recipe’s, so simple yet so good!

    These are awesome! I made them in my donut pan. They didn’t even last a day my husband and sons ate them all up!
