Yes I know the blog design has changed yet again, as I said it’s kind of like changing my room around!
Anyway I’ve been inspired to make a few sensible vice treats; this is also to help dh stay healthy as he has been slowly making the transition to more primal eating. He’s very much a sugar addict and I know it’s been hard for him so these experiments are to help him and so I too can have a little treat 🙂 but obviously not too often because I don’t want to stop losing weight.
The blueberry muffins I’ve made are from Elana’s Pantry. http://www.elanaspantry.com/blueberry-muffins/ However I made a few adjustments, the recipe is here:
Gluten Free Blueberry Muffins
½ cup coconut flour, sifted
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon baking soda
⅓ cup dark cane sugar (depending on sweetness)
100gms of melted butter
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 cup blueberries, fresh or frozen
In a small bowl, combine coconut flour, salt and baking soda
In a large bowl, combine eggs, sugar, butter and vanilla and blend well with a hand mixer
Mix dry ingredients into wet, blending with a hand mixer
Gently fold in blueberries
Place batter in paper lined muffin tins
Bake at 350° for 20-25 minutes
Cool and serve
Now you may be thinking woah sugar….well I hate artificial sweeteners and so does dh, 1/3 cup of dark cane sugar divided into 12 muffins is 1tsp sugar per muffin so that’s pretty good I think. They aren’t overly sweet at all but very very good, the butter makes them pretty damn nice too even dh like’s them.
Tip: make sure you buy cupcake liners, I buttered the muffin tray and they still stuck, took a little while to get them out!
Now I almost find these too yummy so I think next time I might try savory muffins with cheese, I think they would be awesome. Will let you know!
