HCG Maintenance Compliant Coconut Flour Muffins

Coconut Flour Muffins

These low carb, high fiber muffins are a favorite in our home! The recipe as printed was developed by Bruce Fife and can be found in his “Cooking with Coconut Flour” cookbook.  Working with Coconut Flour takes a little practice!  I highly recommend you invest a few dollars and purchase this book.

NOTE:  I usually add additional Vanilla Extract, but that is a personal preference. You can also substitute 2 to 3 Tablespoons of Honey, or Yacon Syrup as your sweetener when you have completed Maintenance….as I said, the recipe is very forgiving. Enjoy and be creative!

Bruce Fife’s Coconut Flour Muffins

* Bring your eggs to room temperature to improve volume.

3 Pastured Eggs
2 Tablespoons Pastured Butter, melted
2 Tablespoons coconut milk, or whole milk
30 drops of liquid stevia or 1/4 teaspoon of powdered stevia
1/4 teaspoon of sea salt
1/4 teaspoon gluten free Vanilla Extract (I use 1 teaspoon)
1/4 cup sifted coconut flour
1/4 teaspoon baking powder

Blend together eggs, butter, coconut milk, stevia, salt and vanilla extract in a medium sized bowl with a fork.
Combine the sifted coconut flour with baking powder in a small bowl.
Mix into the egg mixture and stir with a fork until the mixture is smooth without lumps.
Pour batter into greased muffin tins.
Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes.
Makes 6 Muffins or 12 Mini Muffins

SPECIAL NOTE: It takes a bit of time and elbow grease to get the batter smooth, be patient. Using an electric mixer changes the consistency of the batter, so stick with a fork for mixing.

    The pic here shows blueberries but the recipe doesn’t have it listed, so if you were to blueberries in the muffins or any sort of fruit how much would you put in it?

      Melody, you can certainly make them plain, but with a few berries they are wonderful. 1/2 to 3/4 cup would be enough for the entire batch of muffins.
