How to Make Paleo Muffins
Muffins are one of children’s all-time favorite foods, and a homemaker has to learn sooner or later how to prepare them. If you’re following the paleo diet in your household, even better! Healthy and naturally prepared muffins can be a delicious snack for both children and adults.
Paleo diet muffins aren’t very different from regular muffins. The only distinction is that paleo muffins are prepared using ingredients that aren’t prohibited by the paleo diet. The list of foods approved for the paleo diet is extensive but takes a lot of time getting used to it, as it eliminates many ingredients widely used today and which people are accustomed to.
Paleo muffins are delicious and at the same time help you remain fit and healthy. The process of making them is quite simple, following the right recipe. Here you will find out how to make blueberry muffins.
Blueberries are among the fruit acceptable in the paleo diet, and are moreover enjoyed by many people because they’re both tasty are rich in vitamins. The rest of the ingredients needed for this recipe are: almond butter and flour, baking powder and soda, honey, cinnamon, salt, coconut and coconut oil, and eggs. (Of course, don’t forget the key ingredient, which is blueberries.)
Paleo Muffins Recipe:
Shred about 1/3 cup of coconut and whisk 3 eggs together. This recipe for muffins takes around 20 minutes to prepare, so it’s ideal for when you have limited time to cook.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Mix all the ingredients together and make sure to get the measurements right. After mixing the batter thoroughly until it’s free from lumps, all you need to do is pour it into the muffin cups or a muffin tray. Place them in the oven and bake for about 15 to 20 minutes; your paleo muffins will then be ready.
Recipe for Egg Muffins
Here is another simple recipe for your muffin menu: egg muffins. This time, instead of almond flour, use meat and eggs for muffins that are a bit more filling. Savory muffins are just as tasty as sweet muffins, and equally healthy.
For this recipe, you will need about a dozen eggs, some coconut oil and ghee, ground pork sausage, salt, and pepper. These are the only ingredients needed to make a delicious variation of paleo muffins.
Preparation is similar to our previous recipe. Just pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees. Put some ground pork sausage in a frying pan and crumble it well. Next, crack 12 eggs in a separate bowl and beat them, adding salt and pepper for taste. Grease some muffin cups and distribute the ground pork sausages into them in equal proportions. Fill the rest of the space in the cup with scrambled eggs. Move the muffin cups to the oven and bake them for about 20 minutes. When the muffins are nicely cooked, leave them out to cool for five minutes. Remove them from the cups, and serve. Your egg muffins are now ready to eat!
