Coconut Flour Blueberry Muffins

Standard

Hi everyone!

Today I decided to experiment with a coconut flour based muffin. I obtained the base recipe from The Coconut Mama, who has so many delicious coconut flour (and other coconut) recipes.

I decided to add the blueberries in frozen, just before putting the batter into the cupcake tins. It worked beautifully as you can see below.

I’m so excited that I’ll have a super great base recipe to work with in the future. I want to try making banana nut muffins, raspberry coconut muffins, and pumpkin muffins with this base too.

I was a bit concerned that the family wouldn’t like the texture of these, but they were a huge hit with everyone! They even liked the honey sweetened aspect of them, as opposed to being sweetened with sugar (which I try hard to avoid). Again, everyone went back for seconds and even thirds throughout the day, which let me know that this recipe is definitely a winner!

So without further ado, here’s the recipe for you.

Broccoli Slaw Pine Nut Salad

Standard

I wanted something quick and simple to throw together for breakfast (Yes, you read that correctly. I rarely eat typical breakfast food for breakfast.) and remembered that I still had some broccoli slaw in the refrigerator. I poked around the cupboards and pantry too, and here’s what I came up with for breakfast. ***I should note that this is a great dish to consume at ANY time of the day, and it would also make a refreshing salad to take to a potluck or family get together.
