Sunshine Muffins (Gluten Free Recipe)

 

Sunshine Muffins (Gluten Free)

Sunshine Muffins (Gluten Free)

These versatile and moist muffins are not sweet. I limit the sugar content in my family’s life so I create some recipes without any added sugar. The only sweetness from these babies comes from the orange juice. So, if you’d like a sweet muffin, then by all means add some sugar (coconut crystals, honey, xylitol).

I’m also known in my family to make gluten free muffins and breads without added sugar because if I feel like sweetening it up later, I drizzle raw honey or maple syrup on top.

Oh, another good reason for keeping the sugar out is that I can then serve these alongside stew or chili.

If you want them strict paleo style, then simply swap out the high vitamin butter oil for coconut oil.

These are named Sunshine Muffins because they’re great for a sunny breakfast and yellow-ish in color. They are made with coconut flour which I don’t exclusively bake with often as it can make overly dry foods, causing you to choke it down and need a beverage. Still, these muffins are loaded with eggs, lemon juice, and orange juice so they turn out to be quite moist. I’d still recommend serving them with something to drink… organic coffee or tea pair especially well.

Pour the blended mixture into the bowl of dry ingredients and stir to combine.

Transfer the mixture (I use an ice cream scoop) to a muffin baking dish.

Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until a cake tester comes out clean after insertion.

I love my Breville Smart Oven for baking just about everything.
