cinnamon bun muffins

yummy yummy yummy… enjoy this treat!  We sometimes buy sticky cinnamon bread at the  farmers market and this is the alternative for Clara.
this recipe is adapted from here.


1.5T (21g) Greek yogurt, Fage Total Classic
1T (15g) Walden Farms pancake syrup
1/2 (25g) egg
1/4C (28g) almond flour
1/16t (0.3g) sea salt
1/8t (0.6g) baking soda
1T (14g) butter, softened

Cinnamon topping
1/2T (3g) ground cinnamon
1T (15g) Walden Farms pancake syrup
1/2T (7g) european style butter, melted
1T chopped walnuts (optional)


Mix all the dry ingredients for the muffins.  Mix all the wet ingredients for muffins and combine well with the dry ingredients.

Mix the cinnamon topping ingredients together and set aside.

in a greased mini muffin pan, pour the batter half way up.  add 1/4-1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon topping in the center, then pour the muffin batter to 3/4 way to the top.  if you are using walnuts, you can top it at this time (i left it out since clara doesn’t like the texture with it).  pour rest of the toppings on top.  give it a little stir with a toothpick.

Bake at 325F (preheated) for 15-17 minutes.

Ratio 2:1
Makes 6 mini muffins (for each muffin: Calories 64, 0.87g of carb)
