Happy Thursday! It is time to share with you the long awaited Almond Flour Cinnamon Coffee Cake Muffin that I shared a picture of on instagram last Monday! I made this recipe after posting these ! I had many requests for a version that was made without wheat! And to be honest, I already had a wheat free version in the making! After the boyfriends reaction to the original recipe, I was kind of jealous and wanted to make a version that I could eat! Well, here they are! Personally, I think these looked and smelled a thousand times better than the original ones! I didn’t taste the other ones, but I would bet these tasted better too! I had made the Almond Flour version the Sunday before the hurricane hit New Jersey. I hadn’t photographed them before I left, so when I returned, I was ‘forced’ (;)) to make a second batch, which might just happen to already be gone again! Ooops! Yes, they are THAT good! I hope you enjoy them!

3/4c (84g) Almond Flour

1 1/2tsp psyllium husk

1/2c (113g) greek yogurt (I used 0% fage)

1 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract

1 tbs ground cinnamon

3 packets granular stevia (or more baking stevia)

    Do you know where you would get psyllium husk from? I'm not familiar with that!

    LOVE this recipe!! I doubled it and substituted stevia for a scoop ov vanilla protien powder. Yep. I said it. Protien powder. It is sweetened with stevia so since I was out thought it would be a good substitute. I made a coffee cake and baked in a small baking dish (5x7) and it turned out beautifully! Moist and delicious! Serves 8. Add another 15 cals and 5g of protien per serving. Seriously. For dessert? THANK YOU!

    Question.... I am not really allowed yogurt in the diet I am currently following. Are there any other options you can recommend to replace the yogurt in this recipe? Thanks!

    Hi Sarah! I just stumbled upon your awesome website and I love it! I don't have any almond flour, but I do have all purpose flour, whole wheat and oat bran...any advice on what portions of these I should use? I know whole wheat can make baked goods dry but that's as far as my knowledge goes! lol Thanks!
