Paleo Muffins with Coconut Flour

Here's a basic recipe for paleo muffins that is grain-free, gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free... it works as long as you can handle coconut and eggs!

I adapted this recipe from another one I found, reducing it down to a basic muffin recipe with no sugar.

I like to add some blueberries in (frozen are fine) before I put it in the oven, but you could use whatever is in season or in your cupboard.

Other good ideas to try are raisins, raspberries, or a little chopped apple.

You could definitely experiment with the recipe and try other berries or fruits, but we all love blueberries so much that I just stick to paleo blueberry muffins.

I've made this in a muffin tin and divided it up to make a dozen, but I think making it in a square baking dish is easier.

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 30 minutes
Yield: 1 loaf

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F. Use a little coconut oil to grease whatever muffin tin or baking dish you're going to use.
  2. Put the eggs in a bowl and beat. I like to use a hand crank egg beater. Add the rest of the ingredients except the fruit and keep beating until thoroughly mixed. Scoop into muffin cups.
  3. Place about 5 berries or pieces of fruit in each muffin.
  4. Bake 25-30 minutes.

You can use melted butter instead of the coconut oil if you don't need the recipe to be dairy-free. Serves 9-12.

If you have any leftover, they will keep in the refrigerator for a couple of days if you put them in a container with a lid.
