Directions

MAKING
1. For the fresh juice, first pop the oranges and the 1-inch piece of ginger into the juicer at low, alternating the oranges and the ginger piece to make sure all of the ginger has been sqeezed through the juicer.
2. Turn the juicer to high and pop in the carrots and apples alternatively.
3. Give the freshly prepared juice a stir and refrigerate.
4. Take two bowls, one for the dry ingredients and one for the wet ingredients. Scoop out the pulp of the fruits we use to prepare the juice from the juicer, discarding off the chunky pieces like shavings of the apple and so on. Put this pulp into one of the bowls and set aside.
5. Into the other bowl add the gluten free flour, oats, flax seed meal, xanthan gum, organic cane sugar, salt, baking powder, baking soda and cinnamon. Using a spoon mix all these dry ingredients well.
6. Take the other bowl with the wet ingredients (the pulp from the fruits) and beat in 2 medium eggs. Whisk well.
7. Add canola oil or olive oil and coconut milk to the wet ingredients and combine well.
8. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix well. If the sticky batter is slightly dry add more coconut milk. Mix until well incorporated.
9. Take a muffin pan and fill the cups with the batter. Bake at 350 F for 15 to 20 minutes.
10. To make the topping, take a pan with the organic pasture butter on low heat. To the melting butter add the organic brown sugar, vanilla, a pinch of salt and cinnamon. Stir it well and turn off the heat.
11. Once the muffins are ready and cooled on a cooling rack, spoon a little of the prepared topping and spread it on top of each of the muffins.

SERVING
12. Serve the gluten-free cinnamon roll muffins with the prepared organic topping along with the freshly prepared beverage with fresh fruits.

TIPS
If you d not have a juicer, you can grate the fruits and vegetables, but make sure the oranges are nicely chopped so that they are well incorporated into the batter.

Things You Will Need
1. Muffin pan (If using a non-stick pan do not grease the muffin cups)
2. A cooling rack - for cooling the baked muffins
