Delicious Paleo muffins that are made with almond butter and taste like little honey cakes. Lovely for breakfast, perfect for the kids’ lunchboxes.
These moist and fluffy paleo muffins are made with almond butter and sweetened with honey. They are incredibly good!
It’s difficult to believe that you can create wonderful baked goods with nut butters, eggs and baking soda. But these Paleo muffins prove that you absolutely can. They are fluffy and tasty, in fact they’re just as good as wheat flour muffins.
This recipe makes a small amount – just five muffins, but you can easily double it. The muffins keep well in the fridge (once completely cool) for up to 5 days. You can also freeze them.
I love having one of these paleo muffins for my breakfast! They also make a tasty and nutritious snack. Sweetened with just 2 tablespoons of honey, they are not overly sweet, and they are relatively low in carbs.
I haven’t tried it yet, but I’m pretty sure you could mix 1/4 cup of chocolate chips or blueberries in the batter for a nice variation, in which case I would suggest omitting the cinnamon. But when making plain muffins, the cinnamon adds lots of flavor.
- ½ tablespoon melted butter for muffin liners
- ½ cup creamy roasted almond butter
- 2 large eggs
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- ¼ teaspoon baking soda
- Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Line 5 muffin cups with paper liners and brush the liners with melted butter.
- In a large bowl, with a hand whisk, whisk together the almond butter and eggs.
- Whisk in the honey and vanilla.
- Add the salt, cinnamon, and finally the baking soda, whisking to incorporate.
- Using a 4-tablespoon ice cream scoop, divide the batter evenly among the prepared muffin liners. Bake 15-17 minutes, or until puffed and set and a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
- Cool in pan, on a cooling rack, for 10 minutes, then transfer to cooling rack to cool 10 more minutes before enjoying. Leftovers keep for a few days in a sealed container in the fridge.
