Snickerdoodle Muffins (Paleo)

Monday, October 7, 2013


So these are the best muffins that I have ever made.  Yep.  They are crazy good and the taste reminds me of a cinnamon roll mixed with a snickerdoodle cookie.  You need to make these asap.  And if you have any Paleo or clean eating skeptics living with you, these would blow them away.  I am running around like a crazy person this week trying to get move ready (just a few more days!) and since all my dishes are now packed away these are keeping everyone beyond satisfied for breakfast.

What you will need:
  • 2 1/3 cups of almond meal 
  • 2 tsp of baking powder
  • dash of salt
  • 1 tbs of cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp of vanilla 
  • 1/3 cup of organic coconut sugar
  • 1/2 cup of water
  • 4 eggs
Topping:
  • 1 tbs of cinnamon
  • 3 tbs of coconut sugar
  • 1 tbs of melted ghee or clarified butter
Directions:
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Mix together the dry ingredients and then add in the wet ingredients.  Mix until everything is completely blended together. 
  3. Place baking cups into muffin tray. Scoop enough muffin batter to fill each muffin tin about 2/3 of the way full.
  4. In a separate small bowl mix together the topping ingredients until you have a nice moist crumbly consistency. 
  5. Sprinkle an even amount of crumble topping on each muffin.
  6. Bake for 15 minutes.
  7. Enjoy!  
*Recipe makes 12 muffins 




    Enjoy! Please come back and tell me what you think if you make these!

    Mmmmmm.
    Hey, I have a question for you. I know everyone is always asking if you can substitute A, B, or C, for flour, but can you go the other way? Could I use equal amounts of flour for the almond meal here?

    Lindsay @ Delighted Momma said...

    Mindy- I am not 100% sure regular flour would give them the same consistency but you can always experiment and let me know how it goes :)

    Do you think coconut oil would work instead of butter in the topping ingredients?

    Lindsay @ Delighted Momma said...

    Mostly teaching- coconut oil would not give it the same yummy buttery taste but it would still work.

    Is there a substitute for the coconut sugar...I have all the other ingredients listed except for that.

    Lindsay @ Delighted Momma said...

    Anonymous- You really do need the coconut sugar for this particular recipe. BUT you can always experiment with something else like honey just know you might not get the same results.

    OMG! I MUST buy some coconut sugar...stat! These look wonderful and I'll be making them as soon as I can beg, borrow, or steal some coconut sugar.

    So far I've made the almond butter cookies--I used chopped up dried unsweetened apples in place of the chocolate chips b/c I didn't have any on hand. Made the spaghetti squash pizza crust and it was so delicious I ate the leftover piece with nothing on it. The apple cinnamon muffins, which my 2 year old in particular really loved. I'm so making these. I don't eat Paleo all the time and I occasionally will eat grains, but I'm SO happy to have found this blog and a few others that have easy-to-make Paleo recipes. It's been nice getting my family to eat this way at least some of the time!

    You always have the greatest paleo recipes. My sister is a paleo chef, and we are constantly loving all the ideas you give us for meals. Thank you! We loved the salted chocolate chip ones.

    Momma said...

    I haven't made these yet but my daughter (age 8, Type 1 since age 6) LOVES your flourless apple cinnamon muffin recipe. My entire family does! Cannot wait to try these, too!

    They look absolutely delicious!

    Love Snickerdoodles. They always remind me of fall...especially these ones in muffin form!

    I made these today - perfect cold, rainy day treat! Can't wait to have a couple for breakfast in the morning!! Thanks for sharing. =)

    Momma said...

    My kids and I made these today. They are so delicious! If my calculations are correct I think they're only about 8 net carbs per muffin, too! We loved them. Even my fairly picky husband liked them. Thanks for the recipe!

    Can swerve be substituted for the coconut sugar? I am trying to modify all my recipes to low carb... love your blog & good luck with the move!

    Made those three times in two weeks! They are absolutely AMAZING! Best muffins I have ever had -- and a lot of friends are saying the same (even the "gluten-free tastes like cardboard" friends never suspected anything haha)

    Do you think Truvia or regular white sugar/ brown sugar work in place of coconut sugar? I have everything else and they look delish!

    Lindsay @ Delighted Momma said...

    Anonymous- yes it would :)

    Lindsay @ Delighted Momma said...

    Tricia- sorry I am not sure. I have never used Swerve before.

    Linda McQuerry said...

    On some of your muffin recipes I noticed there was no carb count. How do I obtain that for the above recipe? I can't wait to try your cinnamon-applesauce muffins. Thanks.

    Lindsay @ Delighted Momma said...

    Linda- in all honestly sometimes I just simply do not have the time to post or just forget but I will try to be more consistent about posting carb counts on recipes :)

    Karen said...

    Just finished making these. Quick and easy to prepare. My taste buds were very happy devouring the first muffin. Substituted 1/3 tsp Trader Joe's organic stevia for coconut sugar.

    can you make ahead and freeze?

    loulew said...

    Excellent. Both my husband and I wanted a second one, but since we were eating them just before dinner, we decided we had to wait. Made according to recipe, using same ingredients. Calorie Count website shows 15.1 gr carbs, 2.9 gr fiber for each serving, total 12 servings. Will be making these again soon as we both love snickerdoodles and they are no longer on the diabetes diet. Thank you for the great recipe.

    What sort of vanilla did you use? Extract or essence?

    katie said...

    Hi Lindsay! I just made these and they smell heavenly! I'm going to have a hard time waiting for them to cool.... ;)

    I've made a bunch of your recipes and have been following your blog for a couple years now. It's refreshing, fun, and feels very familiar to me. Thank you much for continuing to write and share your paleo recipes!
