Magical Muffin Mix Without the Refined Carbs
Start this recipe by purchasing your ingredients at the local health food store. Almond flour is an excellent, low-carb, replacement for traditional refined white flour. White flour creates gastrointestinal distress and spurs inflammation of the intestinal wall. This inflammation can lead to the development of “leaky gut syndrome,” in people with sensitivity to gluten. (1)
Source your eggs from a farmer’s market. Free-range eggs are an entirely different food product compared to eggs laid by hens at commercial hen farms.
Chickens reared on free-range farms have space to run around, and finished on a grain diet, that doesn’t include corn. The result is a tastier egg with a dark, orange yolk, not a lifeless-yellow yolk you’ll see in most commercially farmed chicken eggs.
Raw, unpasteurized honey is another essential ingredient for this recipe. Raw honey has no filtering, so it retains the live probiotic and prebiotic enzymes found in the royal jelly from the honeycomb. Its higher in vitamins and minerals than the store-bought brands, and you can expect it to have a lower GI value as well. (2)
Finish off your ingredients with the crux of the recipe – fresh blueberries. These purple morsel of goodness come packed with polyphenol antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals.
Preparing the batter is the most crucial task in this recipe. You’re aiming for reasonably stable consistency, similar to gluey paste, don’t let it get to thin or your muffins won’t rise properly. Combine the almond flour, baking soda, nutmeg, and salt in a medium mixing bowl. In a separate bowl, add the eggs, honey, and vanilla extract, whisk or blend until light and fluffy.
Add the mixtures to each other in the mixing bowl until you achieve an even consistency and then fold in the blueberries. Add the batter into muffin cups and stick them in the oven at 350F for 20 to 25-minutes, or until you can pass a toothpick cleanly through the muffins.
The muffins are great served warm, or cold out of the fridge. Serve them warm at the breakfast table, or pack them into your kid’s lunchbox for a wholesome, low-carb, break-time meal.
