PALEO STICKY BUNS



Josh has been kicking major butt on the 30 day paleo challenge! For his birthday last week, I made him a yummy treat for breakfast... and it turned out to be THE BEST PALEO DESSERT OF ALL TIME.

I'm not joking people. I've made these again since the first time and it is sooo delish. They little muffins are really rich and sweet. Just the way I like my breakfast. (And my men.) hahaha sorry couldn't resist.


The other best part of this dessert is that they are autoimmune protocol friendly. Wahoo! No eggs, no soy, no dairy, no gluten - and still delicious. mmmmmmmm

To make these delicious AIP Paleo sticky muffins I used this recipe as my starting point.


AIP Paleo Sticky Muffins

Ingredients:
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil 
  • 1 tbsp vanilla 
  • 1/3 tsp baking powder 
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup 
  • 1/3 cup + 2 tbsp coconut flour 
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil reserve to end 
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup, reserve untill the end

Instructions:
  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 and put your cupcake tins into the pan.
  2. Add first four ingredients to a medium sized bowl and mix well with electric beaters. (Note: the second time I made these I doubled the recipe and used a fork to mix and it was fine!)
  3. Add the coconut flour a few scoops at a time and mix well.
  4. Scoop batter evenly between 6 cupcake tins.
  5. Bake around 20 minutes (maybe a little less... watch them) or until toothpick comes out clean.
  6. Let the muffins cool while you make the topping. Add the reserved coconut oil and maple syrup to a pot and stirr while it comes to a boil.
  7. Pour the syrup mixture evenly over the muffins and stick the whole tray in the freezer for 10 minutes (at least) to harden.
  8. EAT THEM AND LOVE IT! :)


I ate mine with coffee and it hit the spot!


Also please notice my mug from my acting days! Thanks Aunt Joan for that little gem!

  2. Isn't vanilla a bean and therefore not to be consumed if doing AIP?

  3. Hi! As I'm not an expert on this subject, I don't have an exact answer for you. I would say if you are worried about it, then avoid vanilla. You are right... it's a bean, so by that logic if you are going as strict as possible, avoid it.

    When I found this recipe it was listed as AIP friendly so I'm not sure.

    Here are a few resources for you:

    I hope that helps and I would definitely ask your doctor!

  4. Might be a mute point at this time but vaniila bean isn't actually a bean, it's the fruit of the vanilla plant.
