Start your autumn morning with some delicious Maple Muffins that contain granola and coconut oil (my fav thing!). They seriously taste great with a cup of coffee and are devoured by bushy-eyed kids. Best part: they use real maple syrup instead of sugar.
Maple Granola Muffins
3 cups all purpose flour
1/2 cup granola (I make my own and it’s incredible!)
1 tbsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 cup milk
1 cup pure maple syrup
1/3 cup coconut oil
dash of cinnamon
Preheat the oven to 375°F. Spray muffin cups with oil to prevent sticking. Combine flour, granola, baking powder, and 1 tsp salt.Combine milk, syrup, oil and eggs. Add to flour mixture and stir until moistened (there will be some clumps). Spoon into muffin cups and bake for 15 minutes. If you want to go all out, add some Maple Cream Cheese Frosting to the top.
Maple Cream Cheese Frosting
3 oz cream cheese, softened (leave out for a while to soften)
1 tbsp maple syrup
Beat cream cheese and maple syrup together until creamy. Place a dollop on top of muffin and sprinkle with cinnamon.
*For an even healthier version, use 2 cups all-purpose flour and 1 cup whole wheat flour.
