Cinnamon Swirl Muffins (Sugar-Free, Grain-Free & Keto Friendly)
These Cinnamon Roll Muffins are not only incredibly easy to make, they are an excellent sugar-free, grain-free replacement for the "real thing". Easy to meal prep for grab-and-go breakfasts!
4 Ounces Cream Cheese
2 TBSP salted butter
3 Large eggs, lightly beaten
1 TSP vanilla extract
1/4 TSP apple cider vinegar
4 TBSP monk fruit
2 TBSP Cinnamon
1 3/4 CUP almond flour
1/2 TSP baking soda
1/4 TSP himalayan pink salt
3 ounces Cream Cheese
1 TBSP heavy whipping cream
1 TBSP monk fruit
1/2 TSP vanilla
Make the Batter
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line muffin tin with parchment liners. You can also grease your pan, but grain free /sugar-free desserts tend to stick.
Add the butter and cream cheese to a large bowl and soften (I pop it in the microwave for 30 seconds).
Then, add remaining wet ingredients eggs (lightly beaten), vanilla and ACV). Mix together well until combined.
Add all of the dry ingredients to the wet (erythritol, cinnamon, almond flour, baking soda and salt. Mix together until well combined.
Evenly fill the muffin liners with the batter (I use a cookie scoop which yields about 2 scoops per muffin). Make the Filling
Add the cream cheese to a small bowl and soften (I pop it in the microwave for 30 seconds).
Then, add the heavy whipping cream, vanilla and erythritol and mix well until blended into a "frosting".
Using a teaspoon, top each muffin (batter) with the filling. I usually dip the teaspoon in the filling and grab enough filling to take up 1/2 the teaspoon. Do this for each muffin (doubling back if needed) until all filling is equaly distributed on top of the muffin batter.
Using a toothpick, swirl the filling into the muffin batter. This isn't a perfect process. Just swirl it around until you feel it's swirled enough.
Bake for 15-20 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the muffin comes out clean. Let cool and enjoy!
