Cinnamon Coffee Cake Muffins

Serves: 6

Happy Sunday! I hope you are having a great weekend! I thought I would share with you a delicious muffin recipe that would make the perfect accompaniment to your Sunday coffee or tea! I made these muffins after the boyfriend requested them one Saturday. He wanted something to go with his Sunday morning coffee. He requested….and this is what he received! I hope you enjoy them as much as he did (he ate all 3 of the muffins I gave him in one sitting!)! I guess that means they came out pretty good! 😉

Fit Ingredients

  • 1/2c (60g) all-purpose flour
  • 1/2c (66g) whole wheat flour
  • 2/3c (63g) SunWarrior Vanilla Protein Powder
  • 2/3c baking stevia (adjust to desired sweetness)
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2c coconut milk (carton)
  • 2 large eggs, beaten

Directions

1. Pre heat your oven to 350 degrees.

2. Spray your muffin tin with non stick spray (or line with muffin cups).

3. In a bowl combine your dry ingredients: all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, protein powder, stevia and baking powder.

4. In a second bowl whisk together your milk, eggs, vanilla, greek yogurt, applesauce and ACV.

5. Combine your wet and dry ingredients.

6. Mix well.

7. In a small bowl mix together your cinnamon and stevia packets.

8. Divide half of your batter evenly among 6 muffin cups.

9. Sprinkle half of your cinnamon/stevia mixture evenly among the 6 muffins.

10. Top the cinnamon with the remaining batter.

11. Sprinkle the remaining cinnamon on top of each muffin.

12. Bake for ~40 minutes.

13. Serve with some greek yogurt on top or simply with your coffee/tea!

Since these were made with wheat, I was not able to try them, but based on the boyfriends response….”These are the perfect coffee muffin” and him eating all 3 (I made a half batch) within 5 minutes of me giving them to him, I will go with, they are pretty darn delicious!! 🙂

    Hi, I would love to try this recipe but I have a question where is the coffee in this recipe? Do I need to mix the coffee with the coconut milk? Thank you for your time. Maria
