Boozy Almond Brunch Muffins

I love muffins. Blueberry, Lemon Poppyseed, Apple Cinnamon, Banana Nut, Cranberry Orange; you name it, it's probably my favorite. I had a craving for muffins this morning but didn't want to make the full monty with flour, butter, oil, milk and other things that leave me feeling less than optimal despite being totally satisfied. Why can't we have our cake and eat it too? So, using this paleo muffin recipe from PowerHungry.com as my template, I whipped up some delicious and guilt free muffins with a few add ins that make for a surprisingly delightful weekend treat. 

Boozy Brunch Almond Muffins
adapted from PowerHungry.com
Makes 10 muffins

2 cups almond flour
2 eggs
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 tablespoon coconut oil, melted
1/3 cup applesauce
1/4 cup chopped walnuts
1 teaspoon sweetener (I used sorghum molasses but you can use honey, stevia, etc.)
3/4 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
Cinnamon
Nutmeg
1 ounce of Rumchata (you're welcome.)

Preheat oven to 350. Combine all ingredients and mix. Portion into lined or greased muffin cups. Top with Cinnamon and Nutmeg. Bake for 15-18 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.


The beauty with this recipe is you can swap out a few ingredients and create whatever flavor you want! Instead of the applesauce and walnuts, add 1 mashed banana and a few chocolate chips. Or dried cranberries and orange zest. The possibilities are endless!

What are your favorite weekend treats?

Love,
Allie
