  1. Preheat oven to 375°. Grease a 12 cup muffin pan with cooking spray or line with paper cups.
  2. Using a whisk combine the almond flour, coconut flour, xylitol, baking powder and sea salt in a medium mixing bowl. In a large mixing bowl, whisk the eggs, coconut oil, and vanilla extract. Blend the flour mixture into the egg mixture and mix thoroughly.
  3. Fill muffin cups 3/4 full.
  4. Mix the cinnamon topping ingredients together and drop by teaspoonful into the top of each muffin. Use a knife or skewer to swirl the cinnamon into the top and middle of the muffins.
  5. Bake muffins for 15-20 minutes, or until golden brown. Let muffins stand in pan for 5 minutes and then remove to a wire rack to cool. If baked in paper cups remove from pan immediately to cool.


These muffins freeze wonderfully.

    Hello MamaShire,
    You mention using 6 eggs in this recipe. I assumed that eggs were in the dairy category. Am I incorrect? Also, did you use erythritol or xylitol in the recipe?thanks, Sandy

    • MamaShire (Author)

      Hi Sandy,

      Even though eggs are sold in the dairy department in stores they are not actually dairy. Also, when I originally posted this recipe I used xylitol, but I cannot tolerate xylitol any longer so I’m using erythritol, stevia or monk fruit as my go to sweeteners.

    I just found your web page and your recipes look wonderful! I can’t wait to try them.
    One question – Which one of the THM Stevia products compare to the Now Better Stevia?

    • MamaShire (Author)

      The THM Stevia extract, but I would suggest using a smaller amount when using the THM Stevia. It seems to have a stronger flavor and is sweeter.
