Paleo Mini Blueberry MuffinsAug 11, 2020
When you think of muffins, what’s the first thought that comes to mind?
Yummy? Comfort food? Calorie and sugar bomb?
All of those are right on the money. So how do we come up with a recipe that maintains the yummy taste and comfort food memories without it being a calorie and sugar bomb? And oh yes, it must be grain-free, gluten-free, and dairy free for all of our Paleo subscribers who are asking for these items to be removed in order to decrease inflammation and improve their health.
Here’s the tricks of our muffin baking:
First, you start off by ditching the wheat-based flour and turn to the very popular super-fine almond flour (we like Bob’s Red Mill). Very paleo-friendly.
Then you add to it clean ingredients like pasture-raised eggs, raw honey (for sugar-free, try Lakanto monk fruit), apple cider vinegar, and cinnamon (we put cinnamon in everything!). And load it up with your berry of choice. We happen to love wild, organic blueberries. When they’re not in season, you can always buy a bag of them from your local market (we’re fond of Trader Joe’s out here on the west coast).
These grain-free blueberry muffins make a great breakfast or snack as they have a nice balance of carbs, protein, and fat. They will give you lots of energy and no sugar crash. Now, get to baking!
We think these grain-free, gluten-free, and dairy free muffins are the bomb! They’re moist, delicious, and totally nutritious.
