Almond flour muffins are a great gluten-free grab and go breakfast or snack. They also stay fresh for several days so you can bake on a batch on the weekend for the busy week. If you like cinnamon, and you’re looking for a gluten-free muffin, you’ll want to try making these almond flour cinnamon muffins.
What You Need to Make Almond Flour Cinnamon Muffins
- 2 cups almond flour: Use almond flour, not almond meal. Almond flour has a finer texture so it will make a less dense muffin.
- 1 tablespoon cinnamon: An obvious necessity for cinnamon muffins.
- ⅓ cup maple syrup: A natural sweetener.
- 3 eggs: I’ve learned through experimentation that almond flour requires more eggs than regular flour to keep the muffins held together.
- 2 tablespoons melted coconut oil: Almond flour has fat in it so you don’t need to add much fat to make the muffins moist.
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract: Adds flavor.
- 1 teaspoon baking powder: Make the muffins rise.
- ¼ teaspoon salt: Helps enhance the flavor.
These muffins are simple to make. Start by whisking the wet ingredients and then stir in the dry ingredients until combined. This recipe will make 10 muffins so evenly divide the batter into 10 muffin tins and bake 20 minutes at 350℉.
Storing Cinnamon Almond Flour Muffins
Muffins can stay fresh up to 5 days if you store them in an airtight container either at room temperature or in the fridge. Since they last several days, they’re good to prep ahead of time for breakfast or snacks during the workweek. You can pop one in the microwave for about 15 seconds if you want to warm it up before eating it.
