Guest Post: Chemistry Cachet+ GIVEAWAY

Skinny Vanilla Latte Muffins Hi y'all, I'm Alexis from the lifestyle blog Chemistry Cachet. I am a chemist and academic consultant, but my favorite form of chemistry is experimenting in the kitchen! I love swapping out ingredients and creating really fun treats that are delicious and healthy too! If you are a reader of mine you know that my sweet hubby has had some severe health problems the last ten years, so he can't have any type of dairy and has to eat well. He is a chocolate fanatic, so I have come up with fun desserts like this dairy-free dutch brownie and these super delicious healthy chocolate fudge cakes for two! You can read a little bit about my health and his health along with my blogging purpose here :) Anyways, I am more of a vanilla fan. Chocolate is awesome, but nothing beats the flavor of vanilla. Plus, coffee is life for me..so I decided to create a recipe that incorporated both. These little muffins are perfect for having with coffee or tea because they aren't too sweet. They are great for a snack or breakfast too!

I will say that these aren't very sweet, but you can totally up the sweetener if you prefer a more cupcake like flavor.
Skinny Vanilla Latte Muffins

Skinny Vanilla Latte Mini Muffins

  • 1 1/2 cup oat flour
  • 6 tbsp coconut oil (sub apple sauce equally for fat-free)
  • 2/3 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2/3 cup sweetened coffee, cooled (your favorite kind, I use my french press)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix all your dry ingredients together until combined. Add in all the wet ingredients add stir until JUST combined. Add 1 tbsp to a mini muffin pan that has been sprayed. Bake about 15 minutes, depending on your oven. Make sure to take these out when they are a tiny bit gooey inside so they stay moist. If you like SWEET muffins they are more like a cupcake, add about 1/3 cup more of sugar and it should make it much more sweet :)

They go great with any type of flavor :) I love these best with hot chocolate hazelnut coffee or french press coffee! I hope you enjoy these as much as I do :)
