French Breakfast Muffins – Gluten Free


I had a craving for a hardly breakfast muffin last week.  After a Pinterest search for breakfast muffin I found French Breakfast Muffins.   A little tweaking and viola Gluten Free Breakfast Muffins!  I added the chia seed to give it a little extra health factor.  I know, they ARE muffins – but a girl has to try:)


These are very dense and hardly muffins.  They aren’t light and fluffy by any means.  These muffins taste great and are filling.  They are great for breakfast or a mid-morning snack.  Pop them in the microwave for 15 seconds and you are good to go with nice warm muffins.

What you Need

1 1/2 cups GF flour
1/4 cup white sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1.5 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/8 tsp salt
1/4 tsp GF vanilla extract
1 egg
1/2 cup milk
1/3 cup butter, melted
1/2 tsp chia seed, ground

2 tbsp butter, melted
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1 tbsp white sugar

How to Make it:
Heat oven to 350 and grease muffin tin.  Mix dry ingredients together.  In a separate bowl mix the wet ingredients.  Slowly add wet to the dry and stir.  Batter will be thick.  Bake for 20 minutes.

Then dip them into cinnamon/ sugar mixture.While it is cooking melt butter and mix cinnamon and suger together in small bowl.  Once slightly cooled brush butter onto muffins.

These are best served warm.
