Ingredients
For the muffins:
  • Gluten-free nonstick cooking spray
  • 3 eggs room temperature
  • ¼ cup melted coconut oil
  • 3 tablespoons unsweetened almond milk
  • 2 tablespoons coconut sugar
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup blanched almond flour
  • ¼ cup arrowroot starch
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
For the filling and topping:
  • ½ cup naturally sweetened jam or preserves
  • 2 tablespoons coconut sugar
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons melted coconut oil
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Spray a mini muffin tin with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. Combine the eggs, coconut oil, almond milk, coconut sugar, and vanilla extract in a blender and blend until smooth and light, about 2 minutes.
  3. Add the almond flour, arrowroot starch, salt, and baking soda.
  4. Blend again for 2-3 minutes, until very smooth, scraping down the sides of the blender as needed.
  5. Pour or scoop the batter evenly into 16 mini muffin molds.
  6. Bake for 10 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean.
  7. Cool for 5 minutes, then carefully transfer to a wire rack to finish cooling.
  8. Fit a pastry decorating bag with a small round tip and fill the bag with the jam.
  9. Carefully insert the tip into the top of a muffin and gently squeeze to fill the muffin with jam.
  10. Stop just as the muffin feels “full.” (If excess jam leaks out, you can wipe it away with a clean dish towel, but the topping will cover it as well.)
  11. For the topping, combine the coconut sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl.
  12. Working with one muffin at a time, brush the top with melted coconut oil and then gently dip into the sugar-cinnamon mixture.
  13. Repeat with remaining muffins.
