Blueberry Muffins (AIP/Paleo)

Blueberry Muffins (AIP/Paleo)

After 4 years of blogging and about 160 recipes created sometimes I can get bogged down in trying to create new and exciting recipes, recipes that stand out or are unique. Then I remember that when it comes to AIP the recipes most people are craving are actually the simple ones, the ones we took for granted in our pre-AIP days. Something as simple as a blueberry muffin.

These muffins are light and delicious. They have a great texture and go perfectly with a cup of tea. Most of all though, they are a simple pleasure, a great reminder that food doesn’t have to be complex to be divine.

¼ cup Coconut sugar

¼ cup Arrowroot

½ cup Coconut flour

1 tsp Baking soda

¼ tsp Sea salt

2 TBS melted Coconut oil

1 cup of water

1/3 cup of unsweetened applesauce

1 TBS gelatin

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 cup Blueberries


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl combine your tigernut flour, coconut sugar, arrowroot, coconut flour, baking soda and sea salt. Stir to combine. Next add in your coconut oil, water and apple sauce and stir. While stirring sprinkle in your gelatin. Finally, add in your vanilla extract and blueberries. Line a muffin tin with paper liners and fill each muffin cup 3/4 of the way full. Bake for about 30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool completely before eating. These are best enjoyed cold from the fridge.

  • These turned out so yummy! I didn’t have applesauce, so I winged it and blended some plantain with water to = 1/3 cup and that worked fine as far as texture.
    I also added some cinnamon and a dash of cardamom.

  • What do I do if I don’t have tigernut flour

  • Thanks, these look lovely!
    If I don’t have tigernut flour, could I just use an extra 1/2 cup arrowroot?

    • no unfortunately those two types of flour are not interchangeable.
