Paleo Morning Glory Muffins


This is from another Paleo cookbook I have (Paleo Comfort Foods, by Julie & Charles Mayfield).  This one wasn’t quite sweet enough for me.  I omitted the honey, but I would maybe add it in if I made them again.  If they had a little honey, I would give these a solid A-. These will be perfect for breakfast with coffee.  Nothing like a muffin straight out of the oven though.  Ahhh..... :)

2.5 C Almond Flour
1 TBSP Cinnamon
2 tsp Baking Soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 C carrots, grated
1 Large Apple, Peeled, Cored and Grated
1 C Shredded Coconut
1 C Raisins
3 Large Eggs

Directions:

  • 1)Preheat oven to 350 and grease a standard-sized muffin pan

 

  • 2)Combine almond flour, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl.  Add carrot, apple, coconut and raisins and combine well

3)In a separate bowl, whisk eggs, honey, oil and vanilla extract together

  • 4)Pour this mixture over your dry ingredients and mix well.  This batter will be very thick.

 

  • 5)Spoon out into muffin pan and place on middle or upper tack of your oven for 40-50 minutes for large muffins, 20-30 minutes for smaller muffins.

6)When a toothpick inserted in the top of a muffin comes out clean, they are done.
