Healthy & Wholesome Blueberry Beauties!

These are not your average blueberry muffins. Along with being seriously yummy, they pack a serious nutritional punch! These blueberry muffins are golden on top, supremely moist and bursting with juicy berries! Gluten-free, naturally sweetened, heavenly and as healthy as can be, you can feel good about eating one or two, or three… Serve them for breakfast with a generous slather of almond butter, or for snack time along with a matcha latte to beat that mid-afternoon slump, they are the perfect little pick me up!

What you need:

Prep time: 10 mins | Cooking time: 30 mins | Yields 12 Muffins

WET Ingredients
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup almond milk (or any plant-based milk)
  • 1/3 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup melted coconut oil (Or MCT Oil – Read JK’s Tip!)
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
DRY Ingredients
  • 1 cup quinoa flour
  • 1 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
FRUIT
  • 1 cup of fresh or frozen organic blueberries
toppings
  • Unsweetened coconut shreds & gluten-free oats

JK’s TIP: With any recipe you could sub out up to 1/4 cup of coconut oil for MCT Oil  for extra nutritional value! However, I wouldn’t recommend baking with MCT Oil over 350 F due to its medium heat point index, meaning if it gets too hot it could become rancid!

Steps:

  1. Preheat oven to 350F & fill a muffin pan with individual cupcake liners
  2. Mix the dry ingredients in a bowl
  3. In another bowl, whisk the wet ingredients until all combined
  4. Gradually add the dry mixture to the wet mixture, blend until well incorporated
  5. Fold in the blueberries
  6. Using an ice-cream scoop, or large serving spoon, scoop and drop batter evenly in each muffin liner
  7. Sprinkle coconut shreds & oats on top of each muffin
  8. Bake for 30 minutes, remove and place muffins on a baking grid individually to let cool. This avoids the moisture from getting trapped in the muffin liner & making them soggy.
  9. Storage: cover and store these muffins on your kitchen counter, or easily freeze them in an air tight Ziploc bag and to be reheated & enjoyed later!

JK TIP: Beautify your muffins by adding 1/3 cup of Marine Collagen to the dry mixture, for extra nutritional value and nourishing benefits that won’t compromise taste! With one muffin you’ll strengthen your hair & nails and glow up your skin!
