Yummy In Your Tummy Coconut Flour Blueberry Muffins

7 Jul

The great muffin debate. This is what I used to call the enthused argument my friend Teo and I would have about muffins. Are muffins, cupcakes in a ‘healthy’ disguise? Can a muffin be a healthy treat? For the most part I would say that muffins are not as healthy as they seem, unless you are making your own at home. By baking your own muffins you can see how much sugar actually really goes into what you are making. I can guarantee you would be surprised how much sugar goes into a classic muffin recipe. Needless to say I do believe that muffins can be healthy treats…

Blueberry ( Coconut Flour ) Muffins

For this recipe you will need
Ingredients

6 eggs ( at room temperature)
3/4 cups and 2 TSP of Coconut Flour
2x(1/4) cups of Melted Butter or Melted Coconut Oil
1/2 a TSP of Salt ( to taste)
2x(1/4) cups of Raw Honey ( sweeten to your taste)
1 TSP of Baking Powder
8 TSP of Water
1 cup of Blueberries

Directions
1.Preheat oven at 375 Celsius and grease muffin tin (makes 12 muffins)
2. Combine all the dry sifted ingredients (baking powder, salt and coconut flour) into a medium to small bowl.
3. In a larger bowl mix all the wet ingredients (honey, eggs, butter)
4. Gently combine the dry ingredients in a whisk like motion until they are all mixed
5. Add water into mixture a teaspoon at a time until well mixed, mixture should be slightly glue-y
6. Add blueberries.
7. Baking time, 15-20 minutes or until you insert a toothpick and it comes out clean,tops should be golden.

What is great about these muffins is that every ingredients is accounted for. The honey which can be diminished-with apple sauce- is full of minerals and amino acids. So, although these muffins are sweet they are by no means related to cupcakes. The coconut flour is gluten free and filling and the blueberries are great antioxidants. Try them out… I guarantee this is the healthiest ‘yummy in your tummy treat’ you have had lately!

So until next time, enjoy the muffins treats!

    Hello, your blog is wonderful, I’ll definitely try this recipe!!!!

    I’m in Montreal and have been to Concordia Visual Arts, you can check my website http://www.guygiard.fr.fm

    I’m changing my nutrition from mostly vegan to Sally Fallon Natural Traditions to Low-carbs and leading naturally to Paleo. I’m ready to give up grains and am learning to use more coconut in my lifestyle. I see a lot about almond flour which I don’t know much about. I live close to the atwater market, and if you’d like to meet you could tell me how you went Paleo and how you are doing about it!

    Thanks again!!!!!! Guy

    I am confused as to what measurement 2x(1/400) cups/100 ml is.

    Could you please explain.

      Sorry about that Paula…. 2 x ( 1/4 cup)…. not 1/400

      That is one big typo!

      I hope that helps!

        THANKS! So that would be 1/2 cup, right… 1/4+1/4?? Thanks again. What s the 100ml? Do you mean 1/2 cup OR 100ml? Thanks again! 😀

    I am with Paula, I’m a bit confused by the measurments in this recipe. When you say 2x(1/4)cup/100 ml do you mean 1/2cup altogether? So half a cup honey and half cup oil.
    I see that you have written ‘tsp’ for the salt and then ‘Tbs’ for the other ingrediance and I assume tsp means teaspoon but does Tsp mean teaspoon as well or Tablespoon?
    Thanks! Cant wait to try this recipe!

      So coconut flour is really tricky. And I think i was trying to get the right consistency when baking this. I will be giving this recipe a go over. Tsp= teaspoon… TBS= tablespoon. I say wait till I try this out. I will give you both an answer by Wednesday. When i first started using coconut flour I was a bit of a rookie so I think I have this figured out now. So until Wednesday.
