These are gluten-free and made from clean ingredients that will fill you up without leaving you full of guilt. Here are our Cinnamon Roll Muffins!





INGREDIENTS


FOR MUFFINS:

½ cup coconut sugar

½ cup unsweetened coconut milk beverage

1⁄3 cup pure maple syrup

¼ cup ghee (organic grass-fed, if possible), melted

1 large egg

1 tsp. ground cinnamon

1 tsp. pure vanilla extract

1½ cups gluten-free all-purpose flour

½ cup almond flour

1½ tsp. baking powder, gluten-free

½ tsp. sea salt (or Himalayan salt)


FOR ICING:

3 Tbsp. + 1 tsp. reduced-fat sour cream

3 Tbsp. + 1 tsp. powdered sugar


INSTRUCTIONS

1. Preheat the oven to 350° F.

2. Line a twelve-cup muffin pan with muffin liners and lightly coat with spray. Set aside.

3. To make muffins, place sugar, coconut milk, maple syrup, ghee, egg, cinnamon, and extract in a blender; cover. Blend until smooth. Set aside.

4. Combine flour, almond flour, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl; mix well.

5. Add flour mixture to the blender; cover. Blend until a smooth batter forms, scraping sides of the blender with a rubber spatula as needed.

6. Evenly divide batter among prepared muffin cups.

7. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes, rotating the pan after 10 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean. Cool completely before topping with icing.

8. While muffins are baking, make the icing. Combine sour cream and powdered sugar in a small bowl; whisk to blend. Refrigerate until muffins are cool. Top each with 1 tsp. icing.
