It’s my birthday! Ok….was my birthday, and who doesn’t want to indulge in sweet goodness on their birthday? Now…I’m not a total food prude and completely write off all desserts. But I am conscious of choosing the best quality desserts, that are (hopefully) gluten free, dairy free and very low in sugar, or no sugar at all ( yes, I know….this can be hard to come by!). So today, I’m sharing some of my favourite blast from the past recipes that I oh-so-love, and sharing a grain free Blueberry muffin recipe is simply delicious and easy to make! Hope you enjoy them as much as I do!
Grain Free Blueberry Muffins
This recipe comes from my dearest friend Julie Daniluk and her incredible book, Meals that Heal Inflammation. I suggest you pick this book up, if you don’t already have it! It’s loaded with the most incredible recipes! Enjoy!
2 1/2 cups almond flour
1 tsp aluminum free baking soda
1/2 tsp sea salt
1 tbsp cinnamon
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
3 large free range or organic eggs
1/2 cup honey
1 tbsp pure vanilla extract
1 cup blueberries or raspberries
1. Preheat the oven to with paper liners.
2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the almond flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon. Add the oil, eggs, honey, and vanilla to the dry ingredients and stir until the batter is smooth. Using a plastic spatula, gently fold in the berries just until they are evenly distributed throughout the batter.
3. Pour some batter into each prepared cup, almost filling the cup.Bake the muffins on the center rack for 25 minutes, rotating the pan 180 degrees after 15 minutes. A a toothpick inserted in the center should come out clean.
4. Let the muffins stand for 15 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack and let cool completely. Store the muffins in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days.
Makes 10 muffins.
