Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup coconut flour sifted
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/3 cup So Nourished white sugar substitute
  • 6 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 3/4 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup So Nourished white sugar substitute
  • 3 teaspoons cinnamon

For the glaze

Instructions

  • Whisk together coconut flour, baking powder, and ⅓ cup of granulated sweetener in a medium bowl.
  • In a separate medium bowl, add the eggs, heavy cream, oil, and vanilla. Whisk well to combine.
  • Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Don’t overmix.
  • Spray a 12-cup muffin pan with cooking spray or line it with muffin cups. Add about 2 tablespoons of batter to the bottom of each muffin cup. 
  • In a small bowl, combine the cinnamon and ¼ cup of granulated sweetener. 
  • Top each partially filled muffin cup with 1 teaspoon of the cinnamon sugar, then divide the rest of the batter evenly among the muffins, adding the batter on top of the cinnamon sugar.
  • Divide the rest of the cinnamon sugar between the muffins, sprinkling it over the tops.
  • Bake at 375°F for about 25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  • To make the icing, mix the powdered sugar substitute with vanilla and 3 tablespoons of cream until the consistency is smooth and can easily be drizzled on top of the muffins. If necessary, add 1 tablespoon of cream at a time until you reach the desired consistency to drizzle, but not pour.
  • Top the cooled muffins with a drizzle of the icing and enjoy!

Notes

Chef Jenn's Tips
  • Like any baked good, don't overmix the batter. Simply mix it well enough to combine.
  • Use your favorite sugar substitute in this recipe.
  • Don't worry if the batter seems a bit wet, coconut flour needs a bit more liquid. They'll bake up fine.
  • Paper muffin liners work well or use a good nonstick spray to help the muffins release easily.
The sugar alcohols are not calculated in the nutritional information because they have zero net carbs and zero calories.
