I’m just going to skip right to the recipe, since I know you’re probably drooling on your screen/keyboard right now. But let me just say that these gluten-free, dairy-free, refined-sugar-free beauties are LEGIT. Like, make two batches at once, because they’ll be gone in a day.
Ok, let’s get to it!
ORANGE CREME MUFFINS
Prep Time: 5 min
Bake Time: 25 min
Total TIme: 30 min
1.5 C GF flour (I love using Bob’s Red Mill)
1.5 tsp baking powder
1/3 C coconut sugar
2 pinches pink salt
3 scoops Vital Proteins collagen peptides (for extra protein)
3/4 C orange juice (I love Trop 50 because it has less sugar)
zest of 1 orange
juice of 1/2 fresh orange (it just has a different “tang” to it, ya know?)
1/3 C melted/cooled coconut oil (I use Carrington Farms because it’s already liquid)
1 whole egg
3/4 C Lakanto monk fruit sweetened powder sugar (use code FITNCLEAN for a discount!), reserved for glaze
juice of 1/2 orange, reserved
In a large bowl, whisk together coconut sugar and egg till combined and sugar is dissolved. Add in orange juice, zest, and coconut oil; whisk again. Add in dry ingredients, whisking till well combined and batter is thick but smooth. Pour into a prepared muffin tin. Bake at 350 F for 25 min or until a toothpick comes out clean. Allow to cool for 10-15 min. While they cool, whisk together reserved orange juice and powdered sugar till a smooth glaze forms. Dip each muffin top into the glaze and give it a little spin to create that “swirl”. Then ENJOY!
I hope you’ve all had an amazing Mother’s Day!
