Friday Fare – Almond and Oat Cinammon Spiced Muffins

February 14, 2014

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!! Whether you have a special someone to spend it with, or are single and proud, I hope you are having a fabulous day.

Since I made a very decadent raspberries dipped in dark chocolate and cacao for last weeks Friday Fare, I thought I would make something a little lighter, but delicious nonetheless. I bring you Almond and Oat Cinammon Spiced Muffins!

Almond and Oat Cinammon Spiced Muffins

I really like muffins, particularly in the mornings but most commercial ones are full of junk and other yucky stuff I quite frankly refuse to put into my body. These muffins are light, healthy, and very versatile meaning you can add berries into the mix, dark chocolate chips, pretty much anything into them. If I had some coconut whipped cream I most definitely would have dolloped some on top of the muffins I made. They are still a sweet treat regardless of their lovely and wholesome ingredients however, so please treat these as a dessert and do not go nuts. I am planning on featuring a lower calorie sweet treat soon that you can definitely eat quite a few of, so stay tuned πŸ˜‰

You need the following ingredients to make 8 muffins:

To make the oat flour, all I did was buy rolled oats and then quickly pulse them in a food processor (a blender works too).

    This recipe looks awesome! I just discovered coconut oil as a healthy alternative in cooking and baking πŸ™‚ I try to stay away from muffins in general unless I’ve made them too.

      It is so great in baking isn’t it! I’m just glad I love coconut because I know some people cannot stand the taste. I’m glad you liked the post, let me know if you make them πŸ™‚
