Remember how I needed fresh blueberries the other day? It was for this muffin! Since I only had frozen and didn’t want to run to the store, I researched if you can substitute. You can! If you missed it, check out Baking: How To Substituent Frozen Blueberries for Fresh. It’s so easy! I’ve been really wanting to get in to baking more with coconut flour. If you’ve been around for the last year and a half we’ve been trying to eliminate refined flours and sugars completely from our home. It’s tougher than you think! Last summer I attempted a coconut flour recipe that was a disaster and haven’t touched the flour since. I thought I’d give it a go last weekend and not only found great success, but ended up with the most delicious healthy muffin I’ve ever tasted!
We love ALL Nutiva products (and no, this is not a sponsored post, I just really love the product that much!). We have the organic virgin coconut oil, organic chia seeds, organic hemp protein, and organic coconut flour! When I looked on the back of the flour package and saw we had everything to make the muffins I was overly excited to give them a try! In competing in my health challenge healthy snacks are of utmost importance. I need something that not only fits within my calorie goals, but is quick to grab, and of course tasty. These muffins fit all of those requirements! At only 112 calories each they are perfect for my mid-morning and/or mid-afternoon snack! For being gluten & dairy free I was surprised at just how awesome they taste!!
Coconut Blueberry Chia Muffins
- Preheat oven to 350. Sift together the coconut flour, salt and baking soda in the bowl of your stand mixer. In a blender, blend together honey, coconut milk, eggs, coconut oil and vanilla until mixed well. Using the whisk attachment, gently whisk in the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients; add chia seeds. Fold in blueberries and pour batter into greased or lined muffin tins, filling 3/4 full. Bake for 25 minutes until muffins turn gold brown & toothpick inserted comes out clean. Immediately remove from tins and cool on rack.
