This is not your Grandmother’s Muffin!

Your standard Blueberry Muffin is loaded with fat, sugar and carbs…This healthy Balanced Beauty approved reboot is grain-free, gluten-free, dairy-free and paleo-friendly!

SUPER FOOD INGREDIENTS:

Coconut Flour-  an excellent non-grain alternative to those who are gluten-free or on a paleo diet. I like the brand Nutiva because flour is ground from high quality dried coconut meat, and is high in fiber (32% of your daily value per serving). The mild coconut flavor works beautifully in these muffins, and will pair nicely with many fruits options, other than blueberries!

*You can substitute coconut flour for any wheat flour recipe. Just increase liquid in recipe up to 1/3, due to its high fiber content.

Chiapacked with omega-3s, protein, antioxidants, and fiber! Chia seeds are known as “runners food” because they expand in your stomach, help keep you full for longer and to avoid energy dips. I add chia seeds to muffins/baked goods, yogurt, oatmeal, and smoothies.

Blueberries– high in antioxidants and the ultimate beauty fruit! Blueberries are also very low on the glycemic index, making it an optimal choice for a low-sugar/no sugar diet. They add the perfect touch of all-natural sweetness for this muffin. I use frozen organic blueberries to ensure sweetest/freshest flavor.

Coconut Oilcan be used for COUNTLESS remedies, cures and health benefits…Some examples: helps burn fat in the body, helps you feel fuller for longer, decreases BMI/waist circumference, helps reduce risk of heart disease and type 2 diabetes.

Honey– aka Liquid Gold! All natural way to boost energy and memory. A great all-natural sugar substitute, which gives muffins light, sweet taste.

I call these “Coconut Blueberry Chia BEAUTY Muffins” because all ingredients are 100% Balanced Beauty approved, helping you enhance your beauty and glow from the inside out!

ENJOY!
 
Balanced Beauty Inspo:
  • Great for breakfast, a snack, food on-the-go or to satisfy the sweet tooth, without the guilt!
  • Pair with Greek yogurt for a post workout recovery snack from heaven
  • Great healthy alternative for the kiddos (toss muffins loaded with white starches, processed ingredients, fat, and sugar… This version tastes just as good and is MUCH better for them)!
  • Make this muffin into a dessert cupcake by adding a vanilla frosting or cool-whip on top…or eat with a scoop of vanilla ice cream…It’s delish!
