Paleo Cinnamon Sticky Muffins with Coconut Flour


4

I just dug through a bunch of Easter Candy (hoping it’s not expired?) looking for any kind of Dark Chocolate. My cabinets are also Dark Chocolate-free. The only thing I could find were some Whoppers. Gag me. So anyway, yes, I have a bit of a sweet tooth/teeth.

These Cinnamon Sticky Muffins have just enough honey in them to feel dessert-y, and are filling enough for an afternoon snack. Because you dip the “Cinnamon Roll” mixture into the muffin batter, the middle is a pull-apart gooey delicious mess, and the top bakes into a slightly crunchy wanna-be Cinnabon. In a good way.

Cinnamon Bun Sticky Muffins, slightly adapted from kirbiecravings
Yield: about 8 muffins Time: Less than 30 minutes

Muffin Ingredients:

1/2 cup of Coconut Flour (My favorite brand)
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 teaspoon of sea salt
4 eggs
1/3 cup almond milk
1/2 cup of honey

Cinnamon Topping Ingredients:

2 tablespoons of ground cinnamon
4 tablespoons of raw honey (or other sweetener you prefer)
2 tablespoons of melted butter (coconut oil or ghee will work too)
1/4 cup of chopped walnuts or other type of nuts

Method:

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
To make the muffins, combine all dry ingredients and blend them well.
Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and use a mixer to blend (get rid of any clumps of flour), or blend well by hand.
Fill muffin or cupcake liners about 3/4 of the way with batter.
Drip the cinnamon topping over the top of each muffin. Some of it will sink into the muffin batter. You can also use a toothpick to get more of the topping to spread into the batter by poking the topping into the batter
Bake for about 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of a cupcake comes out clean.
Cool and enjoy! Store for a few days at room temperature (covered) or keep in the refrigerator for a week or so.

If you try these I know you’ll love them. They take practically no time to make, your house smells good, your belly feels good. It’s all the great things about cooking in one recipe.
