Cinnamon & Coconut Sugar Muffins

Cinnamon & coconut sugar muffins thermomix

I recently discovered a magazine in the supermarket called “Eat Well” looks like it’s fairly new but as I like to “eat well” & have a bit of a magazine addition (slight understatement) I bought a copy (this is not sponsored I just liked the magazine).  I was inspired to make these Cinnamon & Coconut Sugar Muffins after seeing a very similar recipe in the mag.  The magazine took them a little bit further and had pink cream cheese icing on top which would be delicious but I wanted these for the lunch boxes and was worried about how icing would go in the heat up here!!!  I’ve also adapted the recipe for the Thermomix and used gluten free flour so I’ve pretty much covered all bases I think!

I like that these are refined cane sugar free & really easy to make not to mention yummy!! Recipe makes 8 muffins

    I’ve got some coconut sugar in the cupboard that needs using up and I think I know just how I’ll use it now! Thanks for the inspo! Because these are so healthy and delicious, I guess you can eat more of them, right?!

    I keep intending to buy coconut sugar and then forget – I’ll get to it one day though because I think I would love it.

      I forget to use it but it does add a nice flavour so I’m going to use it more often now. x

    OOh, I’ll have to look out for that new mag hun! I’m addicted to Super Food Ideas, it’s such a good source of inspiration and it’s just so inexpenssive.
    I hope all is going ok with the build and it doesn’t take too long to fix all that wiring (oops).
    I am also not ignoring you either I will reply to your email soon I promise, but everything is fine and sorted so no need to worry.

    Just made these, without a thermomix. They turned out fabulous! I did have to bake them a bit longer than suggested. These are oh so yummy! I am about to make more with raisins. Mmmmm.

      That’s a good addition. I think my oven runs hot so I’ll test the timing again on them. I’s so glad you like them.
