Coconut Flour Blueberry & Lemon Muffins

Another recipe from yours truly

Coconut Flour Blueberry & Lemon Muffins

For ingredients you will need:

1/2 cup coconut flour ( I use Bob's Red Mill)
1 cup Organic Milk
1 Medium banana- ripe
2 sm cases of Blueberries
1 tsp Natural vanilla extract
1/2 tsp Baking powder
1 Lemon- cut in half- seeds removed
1/2 cup Honey
2 Cage free eggs
2 tbsp of Unsalted Butter
Muffin pans
Ice cream scoop
2 bowls one large one medium
Potato masher
A large spoon
Electric mixer with whisk attachment or whisk

Now that we have all the ingredients it is time to make some awesome tasting muffins- this recipe is friendly to those who eat gluten free- safe for people with nut allergies ( though always check ingredients of everything). I am sure the recipe could be tweaked to be dairy or egg free. 

In a large bowl combine coconut flour and baking powder- sift the mixture around for about 2 minutes coconut flour tends to clump up. 

In a medium bowl you will need to combine the banana, vanilla extract, .and eggs together- I mash the banana first then pour in the milk and vanilla extract-  Place the 2 tbsp of butter in microwave for 30 secs- then pour it in. Squeeze the two halves of the lemon into the mixture; then the eggs and honey.Whisk the mixture until well blended.

Pour wet ingredients into the dry very slowly and whisk again whisk until well blended and mixture is sticky. After you have done this you then grab a large spoon and pour the blueberries into the bowl. Gently fold the blueberries into the muffin mix. 

Preheat oven to 375 degrees

Prepare muffin pans by lightly greasing with melt butter or spray ( something healthy!) Use the ice cream scooper to create the muffins. I scoop and then pat the mixture in with a spoon. Place muffin into pan and fill up the muffin pan and then place in oven once ready

Timing is a bit different for these I start out with 25 minutes but always watch it after that for about another 10 minutes. When the muffins are nice and brown remove them from oven and let them cool down. 

  Let me know how these turn out! 
This was just an experiment and I am still getting used to coconut flour
These came out really moist they cooked for 35 minutes
