Yield: 7 large muffins 1x




Cinnamon Roll Swirl:

  • 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar (I recommend this over honey/maple syrup so you have a grainy base)
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a muffin tray with liners or grease well
  2. In a large bowl, mix together flax eggs, banana, oil, maple syrup, milk and vanilla until fully combined
  3. Mix in flour, cinnamon and baking powder until fully combined
  4. In a small bowl, mix together cinnamon swirl ingredients
  5. Fill 7 muffin holes about 2/3 way with batter then a drizzle of cinnamon swirl layer followed by more batter and the rest of the cinnamon swirl layer (swirl with a toothpick or knife if desired)
  6. Bake in oven for 20-25 minutes and allow the muffins to cool for a few then enjoy!


*Store leftovers in airtight container for 3 days, fridge for 5 days or freezer for 2 months
