Easy and healthy recipe for blueberry muffins using grain-free flour for a low-carb treat that makes a delicious breakfast or satisfying afternoon snack.
When blueberries come into season, there is nothing tastier than making a batch of fresh out of the oven muffins for breakfast or afternoon snacking!
The creation below is grain-free, using almond meal flour instead of grain flour.
The healthiest almond flour is ground fresh in a coffee grinder from sprouted nuts. See the linked article for a video on how to do this in seconds!
Alternatively, you can use blanched almond flour from the store, but best to do this only in a pinch.
The sweetener I prefer is date syrup, which is far easier to digest than maple syrup, coconut, or cane sugars. Since it is fruit-based from whole dates, it is less likely to trigger autoimmune issues for those that are sensitive.
It is also a better choice than honey which ideally should not be heated.
Plop a big slab of pastured butter on top of each half for a paleo-friendly treat with very low carbs!
However, please know that I have not tried this substitution yet to confirm for sure. If you try it, please let us know in the comments about your results!
