Cinnamon Muffins

Can you smell the cinnamon? These delicious treats are perfect for breakfast or dessert!

We first had Elana’s Cinnamon Bun Muffins a year ago while we were staying with our friend Christie and her family. (Christie is a wonderful hostess and cook, by the way!)

Cinnamon Muffins

This is our adapted and doubled recipe of Elana’s recipe

Gluten-Free Cinnamon Muffins
GLUTEN-Free, GRAIN-Free, DAIRY-Free | Yield: 18 muffins


2 cups almond flour, blanched
1/4 cup coconut flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon Celtic sea salt
1/2 cup coconut oil, melted
1/2 cup honey
6 eggs
2 tablespoons vanilla extract

Cinnamon Topping:

1/4 cup honey
2 tablespoons cinnamon
2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted

For Muffins: Combine dry ingredients in a medium bowl. Mix the wet ingredients in a large bowl. Blend the dry blend into the wet. Scoop ¼ cup spoonfuls into lined muffin cups.

For Cinnamon Topping: Blend ingredients together.

For Baking: Drop the cinnamon topping on the filled muffin cups, and swirl mixture with a knife. Bake muffins at 350°F for 12-18 minutes, or until golden brown and a cake tester comes out clean.

Let cool on rack. Enjoy!

    These look delicious! We will have to try this recipe!

    Oh, those look yummy! I’ll have to bookmark that. I especially like the “Dairy-free” part! Dad can’t have cow’s milk, so we’re always looking for alternatives.

    These look SO good. Yummy! Beautiful photos. I just love the lighting. I think I like the first photo the best.I am always inspired by your photography. You’re very talented.

    Thank you for sharing!

    These are very tasty muffins for those with allergies. I love to make these muffins when we have gluten-free, diary-free, or grain-free guests, and everyone loves them. Here’s to attest that these are delicious and easy-to-make!

    YUM! :)

    These look super yummy! Excited to make them with a few alterations. Are there really 6 eggs in this recipe? I plan on making these with unbleached/whole wheat flour mixture. I will use butter in place of the coconut oil. Do you think I should still use 6 eggs? Thanks!

  12. Emily Rose on Aug 21, 2012 said:

    Julie, thank you! There are six eggs in the recipe – this is an altered and doubled recipe from Elena’s Pantry (so her’s calls for only three eggs). I haven’t tried this recipe with any other alterations, but you are welcome to adjust it however you see fit. (And if you do, I’d like to know how they turn out as I cannot experiment with wheat flour, but know that others may want to.)

    These look delicious. My son is allergic to tree nuts as well as being GF. How would you say that I would adjust these to using another GF flour such as rice or brown rice? Thanks.

  14. Emily Rose on Oct 1, 2012 said:

    Vanessa, I’ve only made these with almond flour, so I am not sure. If you do try another GF flour or flour blend with this recipe, I’d be glad to know how the muffins turn out!

    I made these for a friend who has one child that cannot eat gluten and one that cannot eat dairy. They loved them! Her son said that they didn’t even taste gluten free. Her daughter told her that she really needed to get the recipe. :-) Thanks so much!

    Hello Emily,

    These are delicious and our go-to muffin all the time. Company (who is not gluten free) has said they are delicious and ask for the recipe. My mother is gluten intolerant (not Celiac) and we have tried many different kinds of gluten free muffins and coffee-cakes. These, by far, are the absolute favorite.

    Thank you for sharing this recipe alteration. :)
