Coconut Milk Muffins

Coconut Milk Muffin

Coconut Milk Muffin

We had a leisurely Saturday on the mountain, the fog and freezing rain prevented us from venturing outside.  It was a good day to hunker down and have a hearty breakfast, the kind that makes you forget about eating lunch.  I decided to whip up a batch coconut milk muffins,  keeping it simple with just a few spices.   While many coconut flour muffins are heavy, this recipe produces a lighter, less dense muffin.  Be creative; this recipe is very flexible and can be made with berries, chocolate chips, or modified by removing the sweetener to create a savory muffin.

Ingredients:

6 Pastured Eggs (room temperature)
1/2 Cup Coconut Milk
1/4 teaspoon Sea Salt
2 Tablespoons Coconut or Palm Sugar (see note below)
1 teaspoon Baking Powder
1/2 Cup Coconut Flour (sifted)
1/4 Cup Tapioca or Arrowroot Flour
1 1/4 teaspoons Ground Cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon Ground Ginger
1/4 teaspoon Ground Nutmeg
Dash of Ground Cloves

Optional:  Coconut or Palm Sugar for topping.

NOTE:  These muffins are not sweet, if you are craving a sweeter muffin you can add more coconut/palm sugar, stevia, raw honey or maple syrup.

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees

Prepare muffin tin by greasing well with coconut oil or use muffin liners/cups.

In a small bowl combine salt, coconut flour, baking powder and spices (set aside).

In a medium sized bowl add eggs, coconut milk, coconut sugar.

Mix the eggs, milk and sugar by hand or using a electric hand mixer.

Add the dry ingredients to the wet and mix until well combined.

Pour the batter into the muffin tins.

Optional:  Sprinkle the tops of the muffins with Coconut/Palm Sugar.

Bake full sized muffins for 15 to 20 minutes (approximately 10 to 12 for mini muffins).

This recipe will make 12 regular sized muffins or 24 mini muffins.
