Yum. And yum again. The nutty taste of the almond flour and the cinnamon. I could not stop eating them! We ate them as is-no frosting. Delicious.

elana has done it again! these muffins are just perfect. i subbed yacon syrup for the agave, and used olive oil because that's all i had. i used the yacon because i am following a candida diet - i haven't had anything this delicious in months! the muffins taste incredible! really like having a delicious indulgent cinnamon bun without all the detrimental ingredients. will definitely be making again.
