Grain Free (not taste free) Spiced Blueberry Muffins
If you noticed my October 10 Instagram reel and Facebook post, I let you in on the process of translating a traditional recipe to a recipe that uses no grains.
The benefit is less inflammation to you.
A couple of the reasons for this are that the ingredients I chose are also organic. In addition to that, these grain free options are higher in fiber so the effect on your blood sugar is lessened. Speaking of blood sugar, these are lower in sugar because sucanat is lower in sugar and I literally used less. Finally, these ingredients have more nutrients that plain white flour and sugar; they are healing the body versus causing inflammation.
Recipe: Grain Free Blueberry Muffins
1 C. coconut flour
1 T. baking powder (aluminum free)
1/2 t. Molly's Salt
1 t. pumpkin pie spice
2 large pasture raised eggs

Place your oven rack in the center of the oven.

In a large bowl, whisk until completely incorporated: flour and baking powder.
In a separate bowl, whisk together: eggs, milk, salt, sucanat, honey, butter and vanilla.
Add the wet ingredients to the dry and mix together until just incorporated; the batter should be clumpy but no dry ingredients showing
