So, on a cold day like today, I wanted to make something yummy and warm for the kids for this afternoon. But, I also wanted to figure out a treat that I could give them that was healthy enough to be a snack or breakfast, so came I up with these muffins. It could be that I’ve been doing the Whole 30 and things taste sweeter to me now, but I did try the muffins, and wow, they were really good. And, Tate gobbled them up!! What I love best about these is that they’re full of protein, fiber, omega-3s, antioxidents, and, they’re low sugar. Between those nutrients, and the warmth of these muffins on this cold day, that’s a pretty good, feel good, food, wouldn’t you say?
Here’s what you need:
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/4 tsp celtic sea salt
- 1/4 tsp baking soda
- 2 large eggs
- 2 tbsp coconut milk
- 1/2 cup unsweetened apple sauce (1 small individual package)
- 1/4 cup coconut palm sugar
- 1/4 cup flax meal
- 1/4 cup coconut flour
- 1/2 blueberries (great with dark chocolate chips too, in place of blueberries)
Set oven to 350 degrees. In a medium sized bowl, mix dry ingredients. Then add in the wet (except for blueberries) and stir until smooth. Now, mix in the blueberries. Next, put cupcake holders in cupcake pan. Cook for 25 or so minutes or until you can stick a toothpick in them and they come out clean. This makes 6 muffins so feel free to double the recipe next time if you love them. Enjoy!
Look at those cold red hands. Winter is finally here!
Shannon - How long did you bake? Thank goodness for this site–I make everything and we love it!!!!
landriav - Hey Shannon, thanks for your note!! And sorry I left the cooking time out; good to know. So I baked them for about 20 minutes but just be sure to stick a butter knife in them to make sure they’re done. I hope you like them! 🙂
Michael - These look delicious and I am attempting to make them right now. First time baking anything of any sort, embarrassing 🙂
What size measurement would you use to portion the 6 muffins?
landriav - Hey Michael! Im not good with exact measurements but would guess about 1/2 cup per cup? I hope you like them! And not embarrassing, I totally took it as a compliment that I motivated you to cook!! 🙂 Good luck!
De - Is that a 1/4 cup of flax meal, 1/4 cup coconut flour, 1/2 cup blueberries. Thanks
landriav - Yes, sorry about the lack of detail! Must have been in a hurry on this post. Hope you like the muffins!
Jessica - What if I don’t have flax meal?
landriav - You could use almond flour instead.
