Cinnamon Pecan Muffins

I didn’t forget about these muffins after our vote. 😊

After we had a majority vote for Banana Nut Bread, I felt it only fair to follow-up with the other option.  What’s fascinating to me about this recipe is that it almost tastes like an Apple Cinnamon Bread … without any apple!  I think the lemon juice gives it the tart and tricks our mind (mine at least).

Do keep in mind you can make substitutions for the Coconut Oil and can be use Butter or another oil, 1:1.  No Baking Powder?  You can use 1/3 of the amount of Baking Soda.

Yes, I am using Flaxseed again – I’m loving the lower amount of net carbs than using just Almond or Coconut Flour.
