Paleo Muffins

i know its bound to be a good day when i make something paleo and the husband says: these were a very tasty little treat. as if him eating half a dozen mini muffins didn't signify he liked them, the warm compliment boosted me up for the day. :)  i love carbs. breads, pastries, muffins, cakes etc. you name it, i want it! however...after a rough bout of thinking i needed to test my gluten intolerance out about a two weeks ago, i am convinced i can no longer eat them. so, a few days ago, a friend and i got together and made some paleo cupcakes...i thought they were good considering i normally have a hard time with paleo desserts, but i decided to play around with the recipe a bit more and make it more of a muffin rather than a cupcake. the recipe has only 26 calories per muffin and tasted like a dream. :)

Paleo Poppyseed/Blueberry muffins
  • 1/2 cup plus 2 Tablespoons coconut flour
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/2 cup baking stevia (or similar natural sweetener)
  • 1 cup coconut milk (you can use almond milk, but i wont guarantee the right consistency with the batter)
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
    • and then you can add whatever mix-ins you choose. i chose blueberries and poppy seeds
      . (i also added a splash of lemon)

     Add all of your ingredients to a bowl. literally just stir them all up, add batter to lined cupcake sheets and bake for 22 minutes at 350 degrees. or until tops are firm and cake-like. let cool and devour. :)

    happy healthy healing!


  1. These look really good... My sister has celiacs and would love these

    1. Kim,
      you will have to share the page with your sister. the best part is, they are easy and COMPLETELY fool proof! i struggle making a lot of gluten free recipes because there is so much room for error, but these are a piece of cake. :) i hope your sister likes them!
