Hey, friends! Can you believe that Christmas is only a couple of days away?! Crazy to think about how fast this year has gone by! I have a delicious recipe for you that would be perfect to include in your Christmas or New Year’s brunch: Eggnog Cinna-Muffins!
It’s like a cinnamon roll, but in the convenience of a muffin. They’re great for a crowd and make an easy grab-and-go snack or dessert. They also have the subtle flavor eggnog, which combined with cinnamon and cream cheese is nothing short of amazing!
These eggnog cinna-muffins are made with regular unbleached all-purpose flour and since I’m not strictly gluten-free, I will be incorporating more recipes with regular flour for all of my non gluten-free family and friends! They are free of refined sugars and if you use the dairy-free alternatives listed, can easily be made dairy-free as well! I even have a Dairy-Free Eggnog Recipe Here!
I use coconut sugar mixed with cinnamon for the yummy filling. I also sweetened the dough and glaze with maple syrup! You can’t even tell a difference, seriously!
If you make these eggnog cinna-muffins, you must use the dental floss trick to cutting each one. It makes for perfectly cut slices and they don’t get smooshed from cutting with a knife. If you have unflavored dental floss, I suggest using that, otherwise it may leave a slight minty flavor, which may or may not be detectable after baking. I’ve also used a piece of cleaned thread with success.
You can put these eggnog cinna-muffins in a greased muffin tin or use this tutorial to make these nifty parchment paper wrappers or regular muffin liners. As they rise in the pan they should puff up and when baked turn into these cool, wonky cinna-muffins!
I like to top these with a maple syrup sweetened cream cheese glaze, but you can leave them plain as well. They’re delicious either way, especially with a cup of hot tea!
Enjoy, friends, and I hope you have a wonderful Christmas holiday with the ones you love. Merry Christmas!Print
