  • 1 1/4 C Blanched Almond Flour Honeyville Brand
  • 3/4 C Arrowroot Flour
  • 1 1/2 Tsp. Baking Powder Grain Free Recipe
  • 1/4 Tsp. Sea Salt
  • 1 1/2 Tsp. Ground Cinnamon
  • 1/4 Tsp. Ground Ginger

Optional Topping:

Or Top With Paleo Cream Cheese Frosting:


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Whisk together the almond flour, arrowroot, salt, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and cloves.
  • Stir in the remaining ingredients.
  • Grease a muffin tin or line with baking cups. Evenly divide batter into muffin tin. The batter barely makes enough so start with filling the cups half full.
  • In a small bowl mix together the topping ingredients if using. Evenly sprinkle topping over each muffin.
  • Bake 17 - 20 minutes or until nicely browned.
  • Cool completely. Frost with my cream cheese frosting if desired (link above)
  • Store in fridge for up to 2 days, or freeze
