Saturday I accomplished recipe one of my 5 recipe goals from the cookbook “Practical Paleo” by Diane Santifilippo.
Blueberry Lemon Muffins recipe can be found on page 246. My testers and I both agree that the muffin recipe could have used a bit more butter or coconut oil. Otherwise the muffins tasted right. I am still up on the idea of using maple syrup for a sweetener. I felt like using coconut sugar or even honey would have been a bit better. I did add a half a cup of chia seeds to the recipe. I loved it.
Here is the recipe:
½ cup of butter or coconut oil
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
¼ cup grade b maple syrup
1 lemon juice and zest
½ cup of coconut flour
½ teaspoon of salt
¼ teaspoon of baking soda
1 cup fresh blueberries
And then my addition of ½ cup of Chia Seeds
Preheat oven to 350
Whisk the eggs, butter or coconut oil, pure vanilla extract, maple syrup, lemon juice and zest together in a large bowl. Sift in the coconut flour, sea salt, baking soda, and stir until well combined. Gently fold in the blueberries. In a muffin tin scoop ¼ cup of the batter into each lined muffin cup and bake for 35 to 40 minutes.
