Almond Flour Cinnamon Coffee Cake Muffins

Ho Ho, who are you calling a Ho? I have realised that I follow so many great blogs so as my Xmas gift to all of my fabulous fit foodies, I thought I would share some if my favourites with you. Each day from now until Xmas I will have a “cameo” from one of the awesome people I follow sharing their recipes, ideas and training tips with you.

Here is the 1st of the “special guest” posts that I have for you leading up to Xmas. I discovered Sarah on Instagram and love her recipes! I am sure you guys will too. You can find more amazing recipes just like this one HERE. Here is a bit about her.

Hi! My name is Sarah and I am the girl behind the blog Ingredients Of A Fit Chick!

Ingredients Of A Fit Chick is a place where you can find healthy, clean recipes that taste sinful, but won’t derail all your gym efforts! I have worked in the fitness industry for 7 years and know the importance of balancing a healthy diet and exercise routine. You can’t rely on exercise alone to get the body you want! For me, one of the hardest things was to “give up” those unhealthy treats and meals to reach my fitness goals. Then one day I thought, why not make a healthier version of the things I really enjoy? And why not share those recipes with YOU? And Ingredients Of A Fit Chick was born! I hope you enjoy this recipe!
