Cinnamon Muffins

Flourless Cinnamon Muffins - Gluten and Dairy free and Naturally Sweetened

Until discovering this recipe, I had never been able to make a gluten-free muffin with quite the same texture as a regular muffin. Most of the recipes are much more dense, especially the ones with coconut flour, but this these cinnamon muffins are light and airy.Flourless Cinnamon Muffins - Gluten and Dairy free and Naturally Sweetened

I was a little hesitant to try them at first since the main ingredient is almond butter and there isn't any type of flour used, but I'm glad I gave them a go as they're now not just my favorite muffin recipe, but my new favorite recipe in general. Unlike some Paleo muffins, these use just two eggs instead of half a dozen. They're also simple to whip up; all you have to do is put all of the ingredients in a bowl and combine. It doesn't get much easier than that!
