Paleo Muffins: Blueberry

For some nice, simple muffins that everyone will enjoy, you can’t go wrong with blueberry.

My 2 year-old nephew enjoyed them, but he wasn’t too crazy about the blueberry skins. So if you have toddlers, be prepared to pick up berry skins with all of the fruit sucked out of them.

If you include dairy in your diet, you could use half and half or milk in place of the coconut milk. That’s what I did with these.

You can adjust the sweetness by reducing the honey to 1/4 cup. I used more in this recipe than I usually do. The fruit adds some sweetness and the cinnamon adds some flavor, so I think they would still be tasty with less sweetener.

A recent commenter on the strawberry banana muffins said she used a Vita Mix to combine ingredients. I thought that was a great idea, especially since it usually takes a while to smooth out the coconut flour lumps. You could try that for this recipe, but remember to manually fold in your blueberries so they don’t get massacred.

I used about a cup of blueberries. You can judge for yourself based on how many you like in your muffins and the size of the berries you’re using.

Makes 9 or 10 muffins.

Paleo Muffins: Blueberry

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 1/4 cup almond flour
  • 2 tablespoons flax seed meal
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup coconut milk
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 cup raw honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 to 1 cup blueberries

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  2. Whisk together coconut flour and almond flour, flax seed meal, baking soda, salt and cinnamon.
  3. In another bowl, whisk together coconut oil, coconut milk, eggs, raw honey, and vanilla.
  4. Slowly add the flour mixture to the egg mixture.
  5. Whisk together until well combined.
  6. Fold in blueberries.
  7. Add to a lined muffin tin. I fill them up almost to the top because they don’t rise very much.
  8. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, or until a knife inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean.

    Just made these and they’re great! I used 1/4c honey as suggested since we’re watching our sugar (even honey) and instead of folding in the blueberries, since the dough was so thick I just filled each muffin half way, plopped in 4 blueberries and topped with another scoop of dough and they came out great. I was a little worried because I had problems with my coconut oil forming tiny balls, but it melted into the muffins nicely. I got 9 delicious, grain free muffins, thank you so much!

      I’m glad you enjoyed them! The coconut oil can be a bit of a pain when the eggs are cold. Like you, I have found that it doesn’t make much of a difference if it breaks down enough.

      Thanks for taking the time to comment!

      I never use coconut oil in baked goods – it hardens and wont play nice with the other ingredients. Instead I use extra light tasting virgin olive oil. Doesn’t hurt the taste a bit.

          ok he’s saying 69% of olive oil is adulterated…but I get a bad reaction to canola and never got sick from olive oil. But on the other hand, I always buy Pompeian so that must be a safe brand :)
          I use coconut oil in lots of other recipes

    We made these today. We added 2 heaping tbs of cocoa powder, 3 additional eggs to compensate for the additional dry ingredient, and a cup of semisweet chocolate chips – and skipped the blueberries. They were fabulous.

    I know there is some disagreement about whether chocolate is paleo, but we do include it occasionally.

      Thanks for sharing your custom changes!

      I have several chocolate recipes on here, so I am definitely not anti-chocolate! I like to use the Lindt 90% bars, and I’ll even chop them up and use them as chocolate chips. They don’t contain soy, and an entire bar has only 7 1/2 grams of sugar.
