Mini Cinnamon Roll Donut Muffins (Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Nut-Free, School Safe)
It was always a good day when your mom packed Little Bites in your lunchbox (my fave were the chocolate chip ones!!) - and these lil guys are so reminiscent of those mini muffins we were all so obsessed with 🥰 Plus, they're gluten-free & dairy-free!!
Here's what you'll need:
✨ ¾ cup granulated sugar
✨ 1 ½ cups gluten-free all-purpose flour
✨ 1 tsp baking powder
✨ ½ cup dairy-free yogurt
✨ 2 eggs
✨ 1 tsp vanilla extract
✨ 10 ½ tsp vegan butter, melted and slightly cooled
✨ ⅓ cup Cinnamon Roll Granola Butter®
✨ 15 tsp dairy-free cream cheese
✨ ½ cup granulated sugar (for the cinnamon sugar coating)
✨ 2 tbsp cinnamon (for the cinnamon sugar coating)
Here's what you'll do:
✨ Preheat oven to 350F. Grease a mini muffin tin with non-stick cooking spray; set aside.
✨ In a large bowl, whisk together the sugar, flour, and baking powder until combined.
✨ In a separate medium bowl, whisk together the yogurt, eggs, and vanilla extract. Pour the wet ingredients and melted butter into the dry ingredients, and use a wooden spoon to mix until well combined.
✨ Place 2 tbsp of the batter into each muffin well. Add 1 tsp of cream cheese into the center of each and then cover with a little bit of batter.
✨ Bake for 10-13 minutes or until golden brown.
