I am in love with chai.  I could drink a one gallon chai tea latte every day.


In a quest to combine my love of chai with my love of cupcakes, I stumbled into a new breakfast creation that is GAPS legal!  Whoo hoo!  It is protein packed, nutritious, filling, and delicious!  Oh, it is also really easy to make and will inoculate your home with an intoxicating scent for the rest of your day.

Nourishing Chai Tea Breakfast Muffins (GAPS, Gluten Free, Grain Free, Paleo, Dairy Free)
Write a review
Chai Spice Mixture Ingredients
  1. 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  2. 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  3. 1 teaspoon ground cloves
  4. 1 ½ teaspoons ground cardamom
  5. ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
Muffin Ingredients
  1. ½ cup coconut flour, sifted
  2. ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  3. 5 free range eggs (I use duck eggs myself)
  4. ½ cup coconut oil (melted)
  5. ½ cup raw honey
  6. 1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste OR vanilla extract
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Combine the spices together in a small bowl. (If you have the time it is best to let them rest together for 15 minutes or so).
  3. Combine the coconut flour and baking soda together and set aside.
  4. Using mixer, combine eggs, melted coconut oil, honey, and vanilla ingredients until they are really well combined and even a little frothy.
  5. On low-speed, mix dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. Mix until all of the lumps are gone. The batter will seem a little runny. This is ok. It should look more like pancake or waffle batter.
  6. Pour into muffin tins (about 2/3 full) and bake for 25-30 minutes.
  7. I eat these fresh out of the oven but you can also let them cool and eat them at room temperature.
  1. If you like to live on the wild side, you can grate some apple and fold it in after you mix the wet and dry ingredients. The same could be done with grated carrot. I have tried this recipe with both and it turns out great! If you want to turn this into a cupcake, you could do that as well. A nice buttercream frosting (made with honey) would be a nice touch. Top it with a dash of cinnamon and you will have a healthy cupcake with some pizzazz!

  1. Wow – this sounds awesome! I’m pinning it and will be sure to try it soon.

  2. Those sound amazing! I’m not familiar with using coconut flour; can it be replaced 1:1 with all-purpose or whole wheat flour?

  3. @Charise @ I Thought I Knew Mama
    I did the same thing, love chai tea this sounds wonderful.

  4. I am just wondering if there is to be milk or some kind of liquid in them? I made the badder and it was very thick and not watery at all. Maybe something missing?

  5. @amymccarty1985 Nope – nothing missing! Did you bake them? Did they turn out ok? You can add in a little more coconut oil and a couple of splashes of any milk if ned be. I have found that the brand of coconut flour can make a difference too. No clue why!

  6. I do not use coconut flour so I was wondering if I can use fresh ground whole wheat flour instead? We love Chai tea and think my family would love these. Thank you for sharing all that you do.

  7. @Rose C Yes, you can use whole wheat flour but typically, you need more whole wheat than coconut flour. Try using 1 cup of flour. Add more if the batter is runny!

  8. OMG these sound amazing. I too, am a Chai fanatic. I am going to make these and I’m sure they will be a hit! Thank You!

    These are fantastic! I was a few tablespoons short of honey, but added in a couple of pinches of stevia leaf powder, and substituted macadamia nut oil for the coconut oil. Also I didn’t have cardamom, but just added a little bit more of the other spices. I made 6 and they were a great size and turned out perfect. Honestly I wouldn’t have known that they weren’t made from regular flour. Next time I’ll try adding some grated carrot……..yum!

  11. These are so yummy! I added a half cup of sultana raisins to mine and they are just awesome! Hard to tell they are gluten free
