We offer Gluten Free Breakfast…they say. We offer allergy friendly breakfast menu items…they say. Come and check out our new and exciting GF options…they say.

YOU DON’T HAVE GF WAFFLES???…I SAY!!

My experience at many, many restaurants have left me feeling defeated and depressed. When Gluten Free options are advertised…Especially for Breakfast..I experience dreams and aspirations of a glorious baked good blowout.

Only then I find their options include…EGGS.

REALLY?!

You are lucky if they offer a good GF bread and you really hit the jackpot if there are decent pancakes.

Walking away, I feel empty and dejected….thinking to myself, ‘I could do better.’

I understand eating out grain-free is a pipe dream, but I always hold out for someone brave to make something delicious that is Gluten Free.

And what is worse is I KNOW….I CAN do better. So I did.

And here it is.

Recipe Notes

You will notice there are weights for flours instead of cups. Weighing flours in Gluten Free or Grain Free is ESSENTIAL. Flours are typically heavier than traditional gluten containing flours. Always allow yourself more liquid if batter starts to set up and get too dry.

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)
