Paleo mixed berry and orange muffins
Paleo, Gluten Free, Vegetarian, Dairy Free, Soy Free
Blood oranges lend color and bright, citrusy undertones to these paleo and gluten-free breakfast muffins. Coconut flour stands in for wheat here, but be sure to sift it first because using even slightly more than the recipe calls for will sop up all the liquids and make for dense muffins.
- 2 to 3 blood oranges
- 6 eggs
- 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
- 1/4 cup coconut oil - melted
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 3/4 cup coconut flour - sifted
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup fresh mixed berries
Make the batter
- Zest and juice the blood oranges.
In a separate bowl, mix the coconut flour, baking soda, and salt until well incorporated. Mix the wet and dry ingredients until well combined. Fold in the berries.
Bake the muffins
- Grease the muffin cups.
Cool and serve
