Gluten Free Uber Protein Blueberry Muffin Madness

I love this recipe for  reasons (aside from a slight blueberry obsession!)

  • Its a total make-ahead (and you know how much I love that!)
  • Protein packed almond flour has 5g protein per serving
  • Its also a complex carb which burns slower for longer energy in the morning
  • Perfect grab and go
INGREDIENTS
  • 2-1/2 cups almond flour
  • ¾ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp fine sea salt
  • 3 large egg
  • ⅓ cup unsweetened pumpkin puree, thawed winter squash puree, butternut squash puree, unsweetened apple sauce, or mashed very ripe bananaalmond mea
  • 2 tablespoons honey, agave nectar or maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil (melted) or vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon vinegar (white or cider)
  • Optional Flavorings: 1 teaspoon extract (e.g., vanilla, almond), citrus zest, dried herbs (e.g., basil, dill), or spice (e.g., cinnamon, cumin)

  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Line 10 cups in a standard 12-cup muffin tin with paper or foil liners.
