Paleo Double Berry Muffins

1 Oct

I’ve been experimenting with a lot of muffin recipes that do not use baking soda and use less than 1/2 tbl. low glycemic sweetener per muffin and finally this one is up to my standards!  Others have definitely needed some apple or nut butter to top them with, but these are nice and moist!



1 cup hazelnut meal

1 cup almond meal

1 tsp. baking powder

3/8 tsp. kosher salt

2 large eggs

1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce

4 tbl. coconut nectar

2 tbl. grape seed or canola oil

1 tsp. vanilla extract

1/2 cup freshly sliced strawberries

1/2 cup freeze dried raspberries


Preheat oven to 350°F.  Whisk together wet ingredients then stir in dry ingredients.  Fold in strawberries and raspberries.  Distribute batter into 12 muffin cups and bake at 350°F for 20-25 minutes (took 23 minutes in my oven).

    Those sound amazing! How idiot-proof is this recipe? I have poor record with Paleo baking

      If you have the proper measuring utensils it is very idiot proof 🙂 And honestly, the batter itself tastes darn good, so as long as you are using pasteurized eggs you could grab a spoon and enjoy.

    Looks great, but I’m allergic to hazelnuts. Would it work to just double up on the almond, or would you suggest something different? (I won’t be trying it for another month, till I’m done with my 30-day challenge, but I want to have some recipes lined up to reward myself.)

      Yes you can simply double up on the almond meal. I wanted to try a little hazelnut to see what it would do to the flavor, but it is still very similar to what I’ve done using just almond meal. Let me know what you think after your challenge is over!

        Will do, thanks!

    These look awesome, but I think the Lurong site says baking powder is a cheat too…

      Just looked into it. Bastards changed the rules! I read the rules before the challenge began, had no idea they would be adding (and they’ve added a LOT) to the list post start date! And without an update when you log in?! Not cool.
