Bursting Triple Berry Muffins (grain-free)

IMG_7074Mornings are glorious when you start them off with one of these beauties. These photos were even taken in the light of the early morning sunrise. Being up at 6am with my little girl gives me a chance to pop a batch of muffins in the oven for the day, and even save for the next day if they don’t all get inhaled.

These muffins are dairy free and grain free. They are packed with ripe berries, pastured eggs, coconut oil and a fantastic fibre from the fluffy coconut flour. The coconut flour makes the texture of these muffins dense (because the flour is a whole food) but light and fluffy at the same time. I personally think this flour makes the perfect muffin. 😉  A phenomenal start to anyone’s day, easy to make and 1000x better for your body and brain than stopping to buy a coffee shop muffin. These muffins last close to a week in the fridge and about 2 days on the counter.

These muffins make a perfect breakfast for your 1+ year old babe (and toddlers) I will be adding an eggless and a egg yolk muffin recipe to my Wholicious baby page ASAP. Popping some mini power muffins in a container for snack while out was probably the easiest and best thing I did with my little girl, especially when she was a hungry monster at 6months plus. Even now its such a great snack for me, my husband at work and my girl.

Nothing like baking a fresh, healthy batch of muffins while the sun rises. ❤

Catching it for a photo op, even more beautiful!

Enjoy, these triple berry muffins!

Notes
  1. Please note, I used tulip paper muffin cups in this recipe, which are very deep and make only 5 muffins. I needed to bake them longer (35 minutes) so the large muffins cooked through.
  2. If you are using normal muffin cups, you will most likely bake for 25 minutes
  3. Feel free to try any other berries or even experiment with other fruits!
