Cinnamon Muffins

Cinnamon Muffins, Right out of the Oven
So, I came back from Europe and was craving two foods in particular: pretzels and cinnamon rolls. The pretzels were a total flop and tasted like dirt, but the cinnamon rolls turned out awesome! I modified the recipe to make muffins rather than a sheet cake, and I used a different frosting recipe (not shown here). As well, the goal is to make cinnamon rolls without the hassle of rolling out the dough (if you've ever worked with almond flour, you'll understand that it just sticks everywhere).

Ingredients (muffins):

2 cups almond flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup butter (or coconut oil)
2 Tbsp honey
2 large eggs
1 Tbsp cinnamon
1 dash nutmeg

Ingredients (frosting):

1/2 cup coconut milk, chilled
1/4 cup honey


Preheat the oven to 350°C. Mix all ingredients together for the muffins. Grease a muffin tin. Fill tin about half way with batter. Cook for 10-15 min. Let cool.

While the muffins are in the oven, mix the coconut milk and honey together and let chill.

Once everything is cool, top the muffins with frosting and enjoy!


*If you don't have coconut milk, you can use 1/2 cup scd yogurt. 
*The amount of muffins this makes and the amount of time needed to cook all depend on the size of the muffin tin. A regular size muffin tin makes 8-10.
