I try not to make muffins very often.  This isn’t because I don’t like them – quite the opposite in fact!  When I bake them, I eat them….all of them! You can’t eat just one muffin, so you eat two. At two, you say “well one more wont hurt!”  So, now you’re at three…and you hate stopping at odd numbers, so you eat another.  Now you’re at four.  You walk away for a while, and then see them beckoning to you when you’re passing through the kitchen…so you have another.  Eventually, you see the last lonely muffin sitting on the counter, and it’s begging for a home. Now you’re at 12 muffins.  I have a muffin problem.

This time however I had a plan. To have them last for my entire work week, I froze them, and reheat one at a time.  Alas, two or three were lost during the freezing process, (ahem.. I mean consumed) :-)

This muffin recipe is packed with awesome things: coconut flour (high in fiber and protein), coconut oil (full of amazing fatty acids), chia seeds (packed with Omega 3’s and antioxidants) and mixed berries (high in antioxidants, phytonutrients, and delicious flavor).

Quick note: baking with coconut flour can be a unique experience. It absorbs moisture like a sponge, and requires an equal ratio of liquid to flour. When you’re combining your wet and dry ingredients, and the consistency seems a little soupy, give it a minute. The coconut flour will start to absorb the liquid. If it seems too stiff, stir in more almond milk, (a tablespoon at a time) until it gets to a pleasant consistency.

    This is my new go-to gluten-free muffin recipe. It’s quick, tasty and lacks nothing in flavour for being gluten-free. In fact the coconut flour is a great foundation! They’re great fresh, and also yummy after freezing.
