Cinnamon Bun Muffins (grain free, dairy free)

I tried another recipe from Elana’s Pantry last night – Cinnamon Bun Muffins. Another hit! Who knew grain free baked goods could taste so good? 🙂  These were very easy to make. And all 3 of use loved them. Elana has a cream cheese frosting recipe to go with it. I didn’t add any frosting. They are great without. I just piled on lots of butter 🙂  As usual, I substituted some ingredients (I’ll post the way I made them). I used coconut oil for all of the oil, which makes these dairy free. But you could use butter instead. Her recipes says it makes 9 muffins. I made them a bit bigger and got 6. They took quite a bit longer to bake that way. They are fairly dense/filling with all of the almond and coconut flour. Definitely a nice treat. And they were a great complement to our omelet and roasted veggies. Next time I make them I might add some cinnamon to the muffin mixture to make them have even more cinnamon flavor.

Cinnamon Bun Muffins

2 Tbsp. honey
1 Tbsp. cinnamon
1 Tbsp. melted coconut oil or butter

1 cup blanced almond flour
2 Tbsp. coconut flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. sea salt
1/4 cup melted coconut oil or butter
1/4 cup honey
3 eggs
1 Tbsp. vanilla extract

Mix topping. Set aside.

Combine almond flour, coconut flour, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl. In a large bowl blend together oil, honey, eggs and vanilla. Blend dry ingredients into wet and scoop a scant ¼ cup* at a time into lined muffin cups. Spoon topping onto muffins. Bake muffins for 8-12 minutes at 350.

*I filled the muffin cups at least 3/4 full and made 6 muffins. I baked them at 350 for 20-23 min.

    It depends on your body. If you are having issues with stomach acid production then you should probably avoid it. But if not then pure baking soda is ok in baking. If you want to be safe you can leave it out. Then when you bake you separate the eggs, add the yolks into the batter normally, beat the egg whites separately until stiff and then fold them in. The egg whites do the same job as the baking soda. It’s an extra step, but it works. I’ve done it quite a few times. Good luck!
