I wanted a Paleo-friendly recipe for blueberry muffins. Something different for breakfast. What I didn’t want was some banana-y or eggy batter interspersed with blueberries. I was bound to be disappointed.
The recipe I ended up with called for:
- 6 eggs
- ½ cup melted butter
- ¼ cup maple syrup
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- Grated zest and juice of 1 lemon
- ½ cup coconut flour
- ¼ cup tapioca flour
- ½ tsp salt
- ½ tsp baking soda
- 1 cup fresh blueberries
Like most muffins, mix wet with wet and dry with dry, then put the two together, mix till just incorporated, then fill your muffin tin. Bake at 350 for about 40 minutes.
Easy to make, despite the frantic search for parchment paper muffin tin liners. And the muffins were edible. Barely. They had a decidedly eggy taste. Cavepeople must’ve been very hungry to enjoy them. And, despite the special tin liners, they had to be scraped out.
After that experience, I went back to the Internet and looked at other blueberry muffin recipes that didn’t call for bananas. All of them had a high egg content—and I have to question where the cavepeople got all those eggs—but most started with 2 cups of almond flour.
Oh. Well yes. That would help.
I’m looking for a cinnamon-spice muffin next. I wonder if cavepeople ate raisins.
