Cara Lyons 100min Duration 80min Cook Time 20min Prep Time 10 Servings Ingredients 1/2 cup coconut flour (56 g) 1 tbsp arrowroot powder (8 g) 1 tsp baking soda 2 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon, divided 1 tsp ground ginger 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg 1/4 tsp powdered stevia 1 large egg 4 egg whites 2 tbsp coconut oil, melted 1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk 1/4 cup part-skim ricotta cheese 1 large peach, peeled, pitted and diced (1/2 cup) 3/4 cup old-fashioned oats 1 oz unsalted pecan halves 1 tablespoon all natural, no-sugar-added applesauce 2 tbsp pure maple syrup Preparation Preheat oven to 350°F. Line 10 muffin cups with paper liners. In a large bowl, add flour, arrowroot, baking soda, 1 tsp cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and stevia. Whisk well, breaking up lumps. Add egg, egg whites, coconut oil, milk and ricotta. Using a handheld mixer on low speed, beat mixture, stopping once or twice to scrape down sides of bowl. Continue beating, increasing speed to high for 2 minutes, until no lumps remain. Fold in peaches. Divide batter evenly among muffin cups. In the bowl of a food processor, add oats, pecans and remaining 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon Pulse several times, for 5 to 10 seconds each, until pecans are broken into uniformly small pieces. Add applesauce and maple syrup, and pulse a few more times, until thoroughly combined. Top each batter in each muffin cup with 1 heaping tbsp pecan mixture. Bake for 20 to 22 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Let cool in pan for 10 minutes, then transfer to a cooling rack and let cool completely, about 1 hour. TIP: To easily peel a peach, drop it in a pot of boiling water for 1 minute. Transfer to a bowl of ice water and cool for a few minutes. The skin will easily slip off.
