Coconut flour berry muffins

Coconut flour berry muffins

When someone gives you a giant bag of organic coconut flour, what do you do with it? Make muffins. And banana bread. And pancakes.

I soon learned that you rarely need more than 1/2 cup of it in any recipe because it absorbs SO. MUCH. LIQUID. When surfing online for recipes I noticed that most recipes call for a lot of eggs. So most banana breads or muffins made with coconut flour are quite eggy (but also quite moist).

I played around with a few recipes I found to make a small batch of coconut flour muffins.

I’ve also been making my own almond milk (basically a ratio of 1:3 soaked almonds to water, blended and strained). After straining the liquid – you end up with a cup of really great almond meal and I didn’t want to throw it out, so I added it to the muffins. If you don’t have the almond meal, just use coconut flour.

Here’s my recipe for coconut flour berry muffins (yields 6):

Preheat oven to 400-degrees. Line a muffin pan with paper liners.

Whisk in medium bowl:

3 eggs

3 tbsp melted coconut oil

1 tsp good vanilla

2 tbsp honey or maple syrup

1/2 tsp salt

zest of one lemon or orange

In small mix:

1/3 cup coconut flour *if you have almond meal, measure a little less than 1/3 cup and top it up with almond meal so it’s a heaping 1/3 cup)

1 tsp cinnamon (or less if you prefer)

1/2 tsp baking powder

Stir the dry ingredients into the wet and add 1/2 cup of your favourite berries. Spoon into muffin tin and bake for 14-16 minutes.

Enjoy!
