Raspberry Muffin Cakes

She Let Them Eat Cake Author: Maggie Savage

Maggie says: “Why Muffin Cakes? Because these babies were meant to be more than muffins. They’re moist and cake-like, and I just know you will love them!”

Yield: 10-12 muffins

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1⁄2 cup certified gluten-free oat flour
  • 1⁄2 cup certified gluten-free oats
  • 2 tablespoons tapioca flour
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 3⁄4 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1⁄4 cup honey
  • 1⁄4 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 2 tablespoons ground chia mixed with 1⁄2 cup warm water
  • 1 cup frozen raspberries

Instructions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line or grease muffin cups.
  2. Combine almond flour, oat flour, oats, tapioca flour, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, and sea salt in a medium-sized bowl.
  3. In the bowl of your stand mixer, or a large bowl, combine applesauce, honey, coconut oil, and ground chia-warm water mixture.
  4. Stir in dry ingredients, mixing well to combine. Fold in raspberries.
  5. The muffin batter will thicken up because of the ground chia.
  6. Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups (3/4 full).
  7. Bake in preheated oven for 20-23 minutes. Let cool in muffin pan for 3-4 minutes. Remove to wire rack and let cool completely.

These Raspberry Muffin Cakes taste just as yummy on day two, but you could wrap them up and freeze for future breakfast or brunch treats.
