Try these easy, delicious muffins – they’re super fun to make (and eat) with your family and the ingredients are all wholesome and delicious.
If you’re not familiar with coconut flour, it’s a wonderful addition to your gluten-free baking. It’s made from the pulp that’s extracted during the coconut milk-making process, and has the highest fiber content in any flour (58%).
It’s super absorbent, and keep in mind a little goes a long way so measure with care. This is not a flour that can be swapped out like some of your other nut and rice flours can.It adds a wonderful texture to this batter and a hint of coconut flavor.
These muffins are a perfect post-workout snack – the white chocolate topping is of course optional – though if you’re going to have a little sugar, post workout is one of the best times.
I had some help from my little cousin TJ making these and his 5 brothers and sisters helped us out EATING them haha.
