Cinnamon Raisin Almond Muffins

Almond flour is such a staple in my pantry. I use it in so many gluten-free baked goods because it is so versatile. You can use it in sweet and savory recipes, and it always yields a moist and fluffy muffin, cake, and pancake.

A lot of the time, almond flour is paired with another type of flour, but for this recipe, the ONLY kind of flour I used is almond. I normally pair coconut flour with the almond in most of my recipes, but I wanted to keep this as simple as possible. They are moist, light and fluffy, and don’t feel heavy at all.

They are only sweetened with a few tablespoons of honey, which lends a delicious flavor that pairs well with the cinnamon, and doesn’t make them overly sweet. And you also get that natural sweetness and chewy texture from the raisins.

Ingredients

  • 2 ½ cups almond flour
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 3 tbsp honey
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 tbsp melted coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup raisins

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a large mixing bowl, add all of the ingredients except for the raisins. Whisk until everything is evenly combined.
  • Add the raisins and use a wooden spoon to fold them in.
  • Spray a muffin pan with cooking spray (or line the pan with muffin cups), and spoon the batter into the pan, filling each muffin cup about 3/4 of the way to the top.
  • Bake for 18-20 minutes, until the tops are golden brown. The muffins are done when they are slightly golden brown on top and you can stick a knife in the center and it come out clean.
  • Remove from oven and let cool for about 5 minutes before removing them from the pan. After removing them from the pan, let cool on a wire rack before serving.
