These yummy Gluten-Free Cinnamon Date Muffins bring me back to my childhood days where my mom would bring home the Costco size pack of cinnamon rolls and it would be the BEST DAY EVER. Those were the days. These muffins are reminiscent of a cinnamon roll (without the icing of course) but in a healthy, clean-ingredient, muffin form!

My favorite way to enjoy them is fresh out of the oven when they’re warm and the dates are all gooey inside. But don’t worry, they’re tasty when they’re cold, too.

How to Make Gluten-Free Cinnamon Date Muffins:

In a bowl, mix together the only wet ingredients: eggs and avocado oil. Now add in the coconut sugar, oat flour and cinnamon and mix again.

Once that’s mixed, add in the chopped dates and baking soda and mix thoroughly.

Pour the mix into the muffin pan while ensuring the chopped dates are spread out evenly between muffins. Top with more cinnamon and coconut sugar if desired!

Bake and then enjoy them fresh out of the oven!
