  • 1/3 cup lemon juice
  • 2 tsp finely grated lemon zest
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil melted and cooled to almost room temp
  • 1 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 2 cups blanched almond flour
  • 1/3 cup tapioca flour or arrowroot
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp fine grain salt
  • 1 cup blueberries

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a 12 cup muffin pan with parchment liners or grease with coconut oil.
  2. In a medium mixing bowl, combine the almond flour. tapioca flour, baking soda and salt, set aside.
  3. In a separate large mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, maple syrup, lemon juice, zest, coconut oil, and vanilla extract.
  4. Stir the dry ingredients into the wet with a silicone or wood spoon, until just moistened. Fold in the blueberries, then spoon the mixture into muffin cups about 3/4 of the way up.
  5. Bake muffins for 15 minutes or until just done and a toothpick inserted in the center, comes out clean (Muffins bake quickly and may dry out if over baked). Muffins will have rounded tops and will be a very light golden color.
  6. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely on wire racks. Store any leftovers in the refrigerator for 4-5 days.
