Melted snowman coconut muffins
Updated: Mar 8
Can you believe the winter has only just begun?? 😭
I've been freezing since last week and the Winter Solstice is actually Today 😵💫😵💫
It's gonna be a looooong winter 🥶
Well, while waiting for the heat to come back I made some cute wintery treats that definitely warmed my days with their sweetness: Melted snowman coconut muffins!!
These muffins are super flavourful since there is coconut flour in the batter and on the surface, the snowman head is made with a big marshmallow and the other decorations are made with dark chocolate and cereal!!
I really loved their taste and they were super fun to make.
Check out the recipe in the section below and give it a try!
--- COCONUT MUFFINS ---
150g all purpose flour
100g coconut flour
100g granulated sugar
50g coconut oil
160g plant based milk* (room temperature)
16g baking powder
pinch of salt
--- TOPPINGS ---
splash of milk
Fruity Pebbles (orange flakes)
Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C) and line your muffin tin with 10 paper or silicone cups.
In a large bowl whisk together with a hand whisker the dry ingredients: all purpose flour, coconut flour, salt and baking powder.
Add sugar and melted coconut oil.
Finally pour milk and mix until you get a thick/not too liquid consistency.
Transfer the batter into the prepared muffin cups and bake for about 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the muffins comes out clean.
Let them cool completely before decorating.
Melt a small quantity of dark chocolate and draw eyes and mouth of the snowmen on the marshmallows. Glue an orange flake from Fruity Pebbles to make its nose.
Finally frost the muffins with a simple glaze made with powdered sugar and a splash of milk, glue the snow men heads, the coloured buttons made with Trix Trolls Cereal and cover the remaining surface with coconut flour.
*I've used rice milk, which is more liquid than soy or oat milk so if you use a different kind of milk you might need a little bit less than 160g; the important thing is that the batter is not too liquid.
Store the muffins in an airtight container for a few days.
If you make it let me know! :)
