Happy Wednesday! 

To be honest, I’m kind of excited for the weekend as I’ve got NOTHING planned. I’ve been feeling pretty burnt out from a number of things and stress has been through the roof. This weekend = Sleeping, eating and not allowing my pillow leave my side. 

Before we get into today’s post- One of my best blogging friends, Meg (who you’d know from her epic blog, Clean Eats Fast Feets AND when she also helps host this epic party!) has finally brought back one of the first link-ups I ever participated in when I first started blogging- The Week in Review. I loved recapping my week and weekend activities in one post and linking up and reading through everyone else’s posts like a novel. So come this Monday, I can’t wait to swap out my bed time novel with a slew of Week In Reviews to catch up on! 

Let’s get onto the eats AND today’s epic recipe!

For today’s day of eats, I thought I’d showcase a full day of meals using Udi’s products in one form or another. Unlike other gluten-free products I’ve tasted (don’t even get me started on some which make me think cardboard sounds appealing….), Udi’s range are delicious and flavorful and often my preferred choice. 

 

Breakfast- My favorite Udi’s Cinnamon Raisin bread topped with butter and a 3 egg + spinach scramble. It was visually unfortunate but delicious.

Snack- If you are shooting healthy flourless sticky cinnamon bun muffins, two one will accidentally fall into your mouth. Right? right. 

Lunch- I wasn’t too hungry as I ate half the photoshoot, so I went light and fresh- Two slices of Udi’s Rye Bread with mashed avocado.  

Snack- Cottage cheese with homemade sugar-free caramelised nuts and Udi’s granola

Dinner- Homemade pizza using a Udi’s Pizza Crust topped with pesto, prosciutto, baby spinach and zucchini. 

Pre bed snack- Um. Balls. Balls. Balls. Balls. I had one cake batter bite and one peppermint mocha bite. Sorry, Meg and J. That’s why 2 were missing from the batch.

I’ve made it a point to ensure all my recipes are completely gluten-free and today’s recipe is no different. These healthy flourless sticky cinnamon bun muffins are totally coat-tailing the recent sticky cinnamon trend I’ve been on lately. It started with the sticky cinnamon roll batter oatmeal then came the sticky cinnamon roll BAKED oatmeal. Did you know prior to this I was also on a sticky cinnamon roll/bun kick? Yep. The cinnamon bun oatmeal and the cinnamon roll waffles. It’s time for muffins to have their shining glory so I present- Healthy Flourless Sticky Cinnamon Bun Muffins

Ingredients

For the muffins

For the Cinnamon Bun Glaze

For the protein packed Cinnamon Bun Glaze

  • 1-2 scoops of vanilla or cinnamon protein powder
  • Dairy free milk to thin out
  • Cinnamon for dusting

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and grease a 12 muffin tray with oil and set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the coconut flour, oat flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, granulated sweetener and protein powder and mix well.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the egg whites and vanilla extract and add it to the dry mixture. Add the dairy free milk, 1/4 cup at a time, until a thick batter is formed.
  • Pour the batter into the greased muffin tray until 3/4 of the way full and bake in the oven for 12-15 minutes, or until the tops come out golden and a toothpick comes out clean from the centre.
  • Allow the muffins to cool completely before topping with the glaze.
  • Prepare your cinnamon bun glaze by whisking all ingredients in a small bowl.

Notes

* Depending on the protein powder you use, you may need more dairy free milk. Play it by ear and adjust accordingly
I do not recommend using whey protein, as the results will be quite dry as opposed to a brown rice or casein blend.
These muffins are freezer friendly.

    1. I could barely concentrate on what you wrote after the image of this muffin smacked my retina! I need to go home now and make muffins! ASAP!
      Perfect weekend plans! Do it! You deserve it!

    2. I have never met a sticky bun I didn’t like! Must try these…they look absolutely scrumptious! I might be getting one of those weekends too…I’m headed to Florida for my mom in law’s 75th, a girl’s weekend. I’m looking forward to a little rest and relaxation!

    3. I jjust love when I have all the ingredients in my kitchen! I hope mine turn out as pretty as yours… Out of pure curiosity, how often do you make a recipe before sharing it? I am so impressed by the # of recipes you turn out.
      Thanks for the link-up!

      1. Hi Kate! I usually make a recipe 2-3 times, as I want the texture and taste to be right- I’d never post anything I’m not 100% happy with. This being my job means it’s an important aspect for me. I’m also lucky to have a few friends and a fellow blogger living closeby who are honest and open to taste test!

    4. Oh man, those muffins looks great! The best muffin I had recently with a pumpkin muffin. It’s the season, right? This past week I had oysters, & I do love oysters, so I would say that’s the best thing I’ve had recently.

    5. I hate how things that are in front of the camera just accidentally fall into my mouth, too! But then again, it’s a quality control thing, right? The ugly ones need to be eaten so they don’t jump into the picture with the pretty ones. It’s kinda of like a high school social scene gone wrong. 🙂 Seriously, though, I love cinnamon buns…so I’m pretty sure I would love these muffins, too!

    6. I would love to have a lazy weekend coming up! I’ll have to wait until next weekend for that since I have work/homecoming this weekend. Hopefully some naps and netflix can help with your stress!

      I haven’t had a sticky bun in forever. I love banana nut muffins the best usually, but I’m now realizing it’s been really long time since I had any kind of muffin (like, months). I’d say it’s time to get baking, but we all know that only happens once a month and I already baked something in October, sooo…..lol

    7. I can not wait to try this one:healthy&fiber ,protein packed&my fave=cinnamon!YOU!! My favorite muffin is (I make)peanut butter,oatmeal,banana and not to ever forget chocolate chips!the recipe needs to be healthified but the 3/4 cup honey makes this the most beautiful,silkiest batter I’ve ever seen. Found 20 yr ago and made 7 dozen then drove them into philly to hand out to volunteers and witness Olympic torch running thru;))))).I added real(oops) bacon last time EPIC!.willing to share for guidance to healthify…you can take all of the credit .M Susan.have a purrringcozy wknd.
