Grain-free Lemon Blueberry Muffins

19 August 2013

I am so excited to be sharing another healthy, wholesome recipe with you today. This one is a winner, y'all. 

The other weekend, we were craving something different from our traditional breakfast fare - something that felt decadent, but without the guilt. My husband loves lemon and I've been trying to incorporate more blueberries into our diets, so a muffin combining the two seemed like the perfect solution to our carb craving.

These muffins have dethroned my chocolate chip cookies as the best healthy recipe in my small, but growing repertoire. They are seriously delicious.

There is nothing more satisfying to me than making something that is truly tasty and wholesome to boot, so I hope you enjoy these as much as we did!


Lemon Blueberry Muffins

INGREDIENTS
• 2 eggs
• 1/3 cup honey
• 2 tbsp. butter, melted
• 2 tbsp. coconut oil, melted
• 1 tsp. vanilla extract
• ¾ tsp. baking soda
• ½ tsp. sea salt
• 2½ cups almond meal
• Zest from 2 lemons
• Juice from 1 lemon
• 1 cup blueberries

DIRECTIONS
1. Preheat oven to 325° and grease muffin pan with coconut oil or use pan liners.

2. In a medium bowl, whisk all ingredients except almond meal and blueberries until combined.

3. With a spatula, fold in almond meal and blueberries.

4. Bake for 25 minutes or until muffins are golden brown.

These look awesome! Where do you get almond meal? Any suggestions on substitutes?

Trader Joe's, Whole Foods or a local health food store should have almond flour or almond meal. TJ's only carries almond meal, which is why I use it for all my recipes :) Substitutions would include coconut flour, sunflower seed flour, flax meal, brown rice flour...you just might have to play around with the recipe because those might have different interactions with the ingredients. Happy baking!

These look DELISH. So I tried to buy healthy foods yesterday at the grocery store but left with pastries and Ben and Jerry's. Never go grocery shopping when you're hungry. Oy! Sorry for going off on a tangent. xoxox
