This recipe is so simple and a great way to enjoy the fresh sweet blueberries that are in season right now.

Foods eaten during their natural season are more nutritionally dense. They grow closer to where you live, which reduces the carbon imprint created when shipped from far away. 

Have you ever noticed that blueberries you buy this time of year taste much sweeter than the ones you get in the winter? Yes, when they are in season they taste better and have more flavor and nutrients. 

The ones from the farmers market taste the best. Since they are grown and picked locally they are the most fresh. 

These muffins have just the right amount of sweetness with those juicy little blueberries baked right into the middle.

 

The coconut crumb topping makes these blueberry muffins super special.  It’s a simple mixture of shredded coconut, almond flour, coconut sugar and coconut oil.

Make the crumb topping first so it’s ready. Once the batter is mixed it’s important to get the muffins into the oven quickly.

In one bowl mix together the dry ingredients; almond flour, tapioca flour, coconut flour, baking soda and sea salt. 

In a separate bowl whisk the wet ingredients; eggs, almond milk, melted coconut oil, maple syrup, apple cider vinegar and vanilla.  The apple cider vinegar activates the baking soda which makes the muffins rise to get a nice fluffy texture.

Pour the wet ingredients into the flour mixture. Then fold in the blueberries. 

Spoon into your muffin pan and top with the crumb topping. 

Tips for Making Moist Fluffy Muffins

  • Whisk the eggs with the milk, maple syrup and oil thoroughly. If the eggs are not mixed well with the sweetener and fat it can produce dry or chewy muffins.
  • Don’t overmix the batter. Overmixing can cause the muffins to be tough and bake unevenly. Gently fold in the blueberries.
  • Get it into the pan quickly to help make the muffins nice and fluffy. Immediately top with the coconut crumb topping.  
  • Fresh blueberries are best for this recipe. But if you only have a pack of frozen blueberries on hand, you can use them. Don’t thaw them. Just fold the frozen blueberries into the batter directly.
  • Muffin liners make clean up easy but greasing the muffin tins with coconut oil works just as well. Let the muffins cool before removing from the pan.
