Super Yummy Gluten Free Coconut Muffins!
Oh my Goodness! These muffins are so yummy, you’ll have a hard time saving any for later when they come out of the oven! The good news is that these sweet treats are low carb, gluten free, and high in fiber.
My secret is to use Raw Coconut Crystals rather than honey to create a truly low carb and low glycemic muffin.
Coconut is your secret fat loss ally! Coconut will help to balance your thyroid, which is the gland that regulates your metabolic rate, or how many calories you burn at rest.
Here’s what you’ll need:
3 organic eggs
3 Tbsp melted organic butter, melted (not in the microwave please!)
2 Tbsp coconut milk
3 Tbsp raw coconut crystals (find this at Whole Foods or your local health food store)
1/4 tsp unrefined salt
1/4 tsp organic vanilla extract
1/4 cup sifted coconut flour (I like Aloha Nu brand; buy it online)
1/4 tsp aluminum free baking powder
Here’s What to Do:
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Blend together eggs, melted butter, coconut milk, coconut crystals, salt, and vanilla.
Sift coconut flour together with the baking powder into the mixture.
Stir until there are no lumps.
Spoon batter into muffin tin.
Bake for 12-15 minutes.
Test for readiness with a toothpick. (Nothing should stick to the toothpick when you stick it in the center of the muffin)
Serve and be prepared to delight your friends and family members!! Above recipe makes 6 muffins.
Each muffin has: 100 calories, 7 grams of carbs, 3 grams of fiber.
