Coconut Flour Muffins

Light and fluffy coconut flour muffins with hints of cinnamon. Perfect for a quick snack.  

Vanilla with cinnamon feels so Fall like. 

Fall is not my favorite season, summer is, but I’ll happily enjoy pumpkin, maple syrup flavors, and cinnamon treats any day.

 

Since I’ve been experimenting a lot with coconut flour I have learned you need to make friends with eggs and use the properties of eggs to your advantage. 

Eggs naturally act as a riser in baked goods. 

Try making the same muffin with an egg replacer such as chia seeds and you’ll see the difference. 

I found besides adding baking powder (baking soda makes it taste too salty), “fluffing” my egg whites was the key to a great dome top. 

Please, don’t skip whipping those egg whites.  Try doing this technique with any coconut flour recipe to get a fluffier texture.

Coconut Flour Muffin Ingredients

How to make Coconut Flour Muffin

Preheat oven to 350 F.

In a bowl combine egg whites and honey or maple syrup. Whip the egg whites until you form stiff peaks.

In a separate bowl combine egg yolks, coconut oil, vanilla, cinnamon and salt until mixed.

Add the sifted coconut flour and baking powder to the egg yolk mixture.

Mix until smooth.

Slowly add the egg yolk mixture to the whipped egg whites. I turned my mixer back on as I added the two together. Mix until well combined.

Fill 6 cupcake liners to the top. 

Bake for 15 – 20 minutes until the tops are firm to the touch and a toothpick can be inserted and come out dry.

Can I make these egg-free?

No, I don’t recommend making coconut flour baked goods egg-free. You can use this egg substitution post for ideas.

  1. Gonna try these later! Love the low sugar content and paleo friendliness. <3

    1. I hate how some paleo recipes use A LOT of honey but I try to use just enough to give it a sweet taste.

  2. I’m just starting to go low carb and giving up tea time was killing me! Thanks for such a great recipe and your tip to beat the egg whites. Do you know how many net carbs would be in these muffins?
