Paleo Pumpkin Blueberry Muffins

Woke up looking for a treat this morning and I have lots of leftovers in the fridge that went perfectly into this recipe.

Paleo Pumpkin Blueberry Muffins

1 egg
1 1/2 cups almond flour
1/2 cup coconut
3/4 cup applesauce (i used my leftover pear sauce)
1/2 can pumpkin
2 tsp baking powder
1 squirt of honey
nutmeg, ginger, cinnamon to your liking
1 cup fresh blueberries

Mix ingredients and then fold in blueberries. Spoon into muffin pans lined with paper cups - yes, take the time to line them, they don't come out very well otherwise. Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes for mini muffins - longer for bigger ones - just keep an eye on them.

I think these taste great, but they came out a little mushy this time. Jeff and Abby just thought they were ok.

** Something else I learned tonight - parsnips slow cooked in the crockpot with a roast are NOT good. Much prefer parsnips cut up as fries and roasted or real thin like chips.


  1. Hi Steph!! Thanks for the name drop. Keep blogging, I am always looking for new recipes.
    I will be looking to you for inspiration for the next level challenge. Thanks for all the ideas. Jamie

  2. Made these this morning. The look and consistency is strange. I liked them, the girls did not. I did not have paper cups but I sprayed my muffin cups with Pam and they came out pretty good.
