Paleo Blueberry Coconut Muffins
Staying at home on stormy days makes me want to bake! But leading this Paleo lifestyle doesn't always make it that easy! But today, I think I found something that works! MUFFINS! They were simple, too! And... they got the "family" approval (which means the kids liked them)... that's HUGE. Plus... It opens up a few doors for future baking strategies! First attempt was a success (I think)! Hope you give it a try! Let me know what YOU think.
1/2 C organic coconut flour
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. cream of tarter
1/4 C walnut oil or coconut oil
1/4 C agave nectar
1/2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
1/2 tsp. sea salt (optional)
1 C fresh or frozen blueberries
Blend together oil, eggs, agave, and vanilla. Combine flour, baking soda, cream of tarter and salt, and mix together well, until there are no lumps. Fold in blueberries. Spay muffin tins and/or muffin tin liners with spray oil (to prevent sticking). Fill muffins tins about 3/4 full.
Bake in a 400 degree oven for 17-19 minutes. This easily made 12 muffins.
Zone info per muffin is roughly: 3F, .5P, 2C
Hope you enjoy some Paleo baking! :-)
