These delicous muffins are a treat my kids love making with me...and eating!
Ingredients
  • ⅓ cup coconut oil, (original calls for shortening)
  • ½ cup sugar, (I use organic cane sugar or honey granules)
  • 1 medium egg
  • 1½ cups flour, (I use freshly ground whole wheat)
  • 1½ tsp baking powder, aluminum free
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • ¼ tsp nutmeg
  • ¾ cup milk
  • Topping*
  • ½ cup sugar mixed with 1 tsp cinammon (original called for powdered sugar)
  • ¼ cup melted butter
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. In mixing bowl whisk till smooth coconut oil, sugar, and egg.
  3. Add in the flour, baking powder, salt, nutmeg and milk. Combine until smooth.
  4. Fill muffin cups ⅔ full (butter muffin cups or use liners).
  5. Bake for 25 minutes or until done.
  6. Cool on cooling rack.
  7. When cooled enough to touch, dip each muffin into melted butter and then into cinammon/sugar mixture.
Notes
I double this recipe every time in order to have 24 muffins...otherwise, it's just a tease!
