Instructions
Wet Ingredients
  1. Melt butter and add in maple syrup
  2. Mix eggs and milk together, then add in butter/syrup mixture
  3. Set aside
Dry Ingredients, Extras & Final Prep
  1. SIFT together coconut flour, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt
  2. Mix wet and dry together
  3. Stir in Chia seeds and flax seeds into muffin dough
  4. Let sit for 5 minutes
  5. Fold in blueberries
  6. Stipple batter 3/4 full into greased muffin pans (basically your batter won't be smooth in the cup, it will look rough and rugged)
  7. Bake at 375° for 35-45 minutes. You know they are done with tops start to brown and when touched will 'bounce' back.
Modifications
  1. Instead of blueberries, you can adapt these muffins in many ways! Really, let your imagination run wild. Here are a few that I have tested and the family loves!
  2. Carrot and Raisin 1Cup Shredded Carrots & 3/4 Cup Sulfite free raisins
  3. Cranberry Orange 1 Cup unsweetened frozen cranberries (thawed and minced) & zest of 2 oranges
  4. Banana and Cacao Chip (chocolate) 2 Bananas mashed & 1/2 cup Cacao Chips
Recipe Notes

Baking Paleo is very different than traditional baking. Due to the fact that the flours are much heavier and you are using a lot of eggs, they 'dehydrate' as much as they bake. Depending on the wetness of your final batter, (mine is usually much drier than traditional batter), will affect how long to fully bake them. After a couple trials, you will figure out which consistency works best with your oven and your brand of coconut flour. (yes, that makes a difference)

Mama’s Mocha

April 29, 2016

There are many posts about the ‘Paleo Coffee’ or ‘Buttered Coffee’ or the ‘Bulletproof Coffee’. Indeed, I find this to be a wonderful energy source with the great profile of fats that it contains. BUT, as always I have to push the envelope and ask, “How can I make this even better?”

So here is what I came up with, Mama’s Mocha! I am seriously in love with subtlety of the cacao rounded out with the vanilla. It is seriously delish. Even my kids enjoy their doctored up ‘hot cocoa’.

There is one secret weapon that I do use, Sunfood’s Tempered Cacao Paste. While I love Raw Cacao Powder, I find the paste really allows me to use it in other applications and still retain its rich flavor and smooth texture. Where the powder can be a bit of pain and have that chalky texture that I do not like in my drinks. A little head-up here. It really isn’t a paste…it is more like very hard chocolate candies. So,get out the meat tenderizer and go for it!!
