Cooking Simplified: Gluten-Free Coconut Flour Blueberry Muffins

As I mentioned in this post two weeks ago, I have been going to the local Farmer's Market every Friday morning to browse the merchants' stands, pick up fresh vegetables and meat from the local farmers, and to enjoy the fresh homemade baked goods.

At one of the stands selling the fresh baked items, there is always a delicious gluten-free coconut flour blueberry muffin that I get for my breakfast (along with a cup of tea) each Friday morning. Now because I do enjoy the muffin immensely, I decided to find a recipe online to make it myself, and came across this one, which I plan to try out in the near future...

Gluten-Free Coconut Flour Blueberry Muffins

Ingredients:

-1/2 cup of Coconut Flour
-4 ½ tablespoons of Coconut Oil
-6 Organic Eggs
-4 tablespoons of milk (coconut milk, etc. or if can have dairy) or water
-1/2 teaspoon Apple Cider Vinegar
-1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda
-1/4 teaspoon Baking Powder
-1 teaspoon Cinnamon
-1/4 teaspoon sea salt
-2 tablespoons Raw Honey or Stevia (optional)
-1/2 cup of blueberries

Instructions:

1. Combine all wet ingredients into a large bowl
2. Combine all dry ingredients in a separate bowl
3. Mix together wet and dry ingredients
4. Add fruit and stir
5. Pour the batter into muffin pans
6. Bake at 400 degrees for 10-15 minutes


Have you tried this gluten-free muffin recipe? If so, how did the muffins turn out? Do you have any other gluten-free muffin recipes you recommend? Please do share...I always love to hear from you!

Have a lovely day! :)

  2. Do you have celiac FFM? I do, but generally avoid gluten free baked goods as they are usually so dense and weighty. ( I also try to avoid eggs.) My only foray into GF food is the Trader Joe's brown rice pasta , which is surprisingly good.

    1. Hi KnitYarns! I have not been diagnosed with celiac but am very gluten intolerant, so I choose to avoid it. The muffins I buy at the farmer's market do not cause me any issues, so I'm hoping the muffins in this recipe won't either. :)
