    Cinnamon Bun Muffins - Comfy Belly

    I had a handful of recipes I was considering posting, but as it goes sometimes, something else catches my fancy and I latch on tightly and run with it. Such was the case with this recipe over the past two days.

    I’m certain you’ll be happy with this it if you enjoy the inspirations for it—Cinnamon bun muffins using coconut flour and cinnamon bun muffins using almond flour. Now we have a union of the two flours and what a beauty they make together.

    I’m so certain of the goodness of this recipe that I couldn’t wait for all the results to come in from recipe testers. Much thanks to everyone who has tested it already in it’s various ratios of ingredients (mostly the flours), and please keep the feedback coming. The wonderful thing about having others make your recipes is that you learn some great variations on a theme.

      I need to try these. I like almond flour much better than just coconut flour. Also glad to see there is no added fat.

    2. These look amazing! I can’t wait to start using coconut flour for baking!

    3. Darlene Leighton says:

      Just made these using half honey and half coconut nectar. I also added 1 teaspoon of vanilla and some walnuts. YUM!!!

    4. I just made these awesome morsels. Much to my surprise were absolutely delicious.

    5. Vanessa says:

      Delicious and moist! They don’t taste at all like gluten free. I used vanilla almond milk, added a lovely sweetness. Also baked 3 mins more because my tins were a bit bigger. Thanks for a fab recipe!

      Can you substitute anything for the coconut flour?

      Just made these this morning. OH, MY GOODNESS!!! These are amazing!! They taste great! I even used plain yogurt instead of coconut milk and they turned out just fine 🙂 Thank you soooo much for the recipe, I’m definitely making these again 😀

      Thank you for posting the recipe. We were looking for a low carb option and these worked out well. (about 6 net grams of carb per muffin) I did use Carys Sugar Free syrup in place of the honey in the Muffin and topping. The recipe made six muffins.

      Thanks for sharing. These are delicious. I’m eating Paleo and I’ve tried heaps of recipes and they have no match on these, even the ones in the cook book I bought fall short compared to these. I can highly recommend everyone should them 🙂

    14. Elizabeth says:

      Is the weight or the volume correct for the coconut flour? Because elsewhere on your blog you specify 1/4 = 26g.

      I made these awhile ago, and they were delicious, but I don’t remember if I weighed the coconut flour!

    15. Terri says:

      I noticed that there is honey used in the cinnamon topping… Isn’t that on the high fodmap food list, which should be avoided? Will it be okay to eat on a low fodmap diet?

    16. Sarah says:

      Could these be made with flax eggs? I am doing a 21-day elimination diet from my Dr. and I can have everything in this recipe besides eggs. My birthday is next week and I thought this might be a good sweet treat for the day!

    17. Christine says:

      I made these just this morning – delicious! Thank you so much for all the amazing recipes on your site.

    18. Inga says:

      I made 8 of these with a single blackberry in the center of each, and they are delicious! Thank you for sharing the recipe!

      Question about the calories: Is the calorie count you provided (thank you for that, by the way) for a single serving or the entire recipe?

    19. Stephen says:

      Would palm shortening work in this recipe in place of the butter or coconut oil?

    20. Alt Food Guy says:

      These are great too! And I like that I don’t use up all of my almond or coconut flour at once too. I actually brought one into work to share and my co-worked said that it a amazing too!

      I am new to almond flour, and I use coconut flour somewhat. I tried these muffins and used fine ground almonds … not flour …. and honestly, they are delicious! These I would make for a buffet, company or breakfast on the run. Also, I used maple syrup, as that is my sweetener of choice.

      Does anyone know the calories for these muffins? We are trying to figure out our sons calorie intake since coming off a feeding tube. He loves these muffins!!
