Cinnamon Topping

1 tablespoons cinnamon

2 tablespoons ripe banana, mashed

2 tablespoon coconut oil, melted

1 tablespoon maple syrup

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Line 12-cup muffin pan with paper liners.

Whisk dry ingredients together.  Set aside.

In a small bowl add mashed banana, eggs, and coconut milk and mix with a hand mixer until well blended.  Add wet ingredients into dry ingredients and with a hand mixer until well combined.

Add batter until prepared muffin cups.  Filling to about 3/4 filled.

In a small bowl, combine cinnamon, mashed banana, melted coconut oil, and maple syrup (if using).  Drizzle mixture over top of muffins and using a toothpick swirl the topping into the muffin batter.  Once muffin is set for oven, sprinkle/crumble ground walnut to top muffin for baking. Reserve some of the cinnamon topping.

Bake muffins for 20 – 25 minutes or until toothpick inserted into center comes out clean.  In the last 5 minutes of baking add more cinnamon toping to the tops of the muffins.

Allow muffins to cool in pan 5 – 10 minutes then transfer to wire rack.

Paleo Coconut Macaroons

Ingredients:
6 egg whites
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/3 cup raw honey
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
3 cups unsweetened shredded coconut

In a mixing bowl whisk egg whites and salt until stiff. Add in honey, vanilla and coconut. Gently fold coconut mixture into mix.

Drop batter onto a parchment lined baking sheet, one rounded measuring spoon at a time. I use 1 tbsp.
Bake at 350° for 10-15 minutes, until lightly browned. I actually put the broiler in the oven to toast them up brown for a minute at the end.

Cinnamon Bun Crepe

Ingredients:

3 Egg Whites

1 Tbsp Cinnamon

1 Scoop Vanilla Protein powder

4 drops of Stevia

Directions:

1. In a small bowl, mix together egg whites and cinnamon

2. Spray a skillet with non-stick cooking spray and cook the egg white/cinnamon batter over medium heat until it begins to bubble

3. Flip like a pancake, cook the other side for just a few seconds and set on a plate to cool

4. In another small bowl, mix together protein powder and 3 tbsp of water LITTLE BY LITTLE until a smooth paste is formed. Add Stevia drops.

5. Spread half of the icing on top of the “pancake” and roll inwards (the icing should act as an adhesive to make it stick together)

6. Cut in half, distribute the rest of the icing over the top of the cinnamon rolls, and enjoy!!
