Strawberry Cheesecake Muffins, Sugar & Egg Free

I made the most divine muffins this weekend!  My family gobbled up all 12 of them in two days.  I got the original recipe with eggs & sugar from  You could really put any berry in these.  I can't wait to try blueberry.  The cream cheese filling was so smooth & creamy on the inside.  It felt like I was having dessert with my coffee.  The girls couldn't believe how good they were too!

Can you the creamy cheesecake layer?

Strawberry Cheesecake Muffins, Sugar & Egg Free

1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup almond meal
1/4 cup xylitol

1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup almond milk
1/4 cup salted butter, melted
1/4 cup coconut oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup fresh strawberries, chopped into very small pieces

~Mix the milk mixture into the flour mixture.
~Spoon the batter into the prepared tins, filling them no more than 1/2 full.  I made a dent in middle of batter too.
~Sprinkle strawberries over each one.
~Top it with a tsp of cream cheese mixture, a tablespoon of muffin batter, and finally a more strawberries.
