paleo blueberry muffins

Who doesn’t love muffins for Breakfast? I’ve been dreaming about this Paleo Blueberry Muffins recipe for some time and it wasn’t until my friend Stacy from Paleo Gone Sassy threw a paleo muffin swap that I got off my tush and started baking.

First, this is the first time I’ve used Cassava flour and it is like 180 degrees different from tapioca flour.  I would consider it more similar to a tradition wheat flour.  When I was creating the recipe, I made it 3 times and each time it came out a tad different due to the uniqueness of the Cassava flour.   The batter needs to be like pancake batter to come out correct so please note the instructions in the recipe.

Mr. Bejelly said the flavor reminded him of the cereal Buckwheat’s.

Can you recommend some other flour for the cassava flour. Cannot get that here.

WOW! These are amazing! I love the combination of cassava and almond flours in pancakes and was hoping (but doubting) to find them together in a muffin recipe. Luckily I stumbled upon this one. I accidentally put in too much coconut sugar (like double - I reduced the maple syrup a bit to compensate), but it was actually perfectly sweet for my family. Oh, and I didn't have blueberries so I omitted them this time. Thank you so much!

I added 1 teaspoon of baking POWDER to the recipe and baked the muffins at 400 degrees for 18-20 mins (depending on your oven). They rose past the tins and tasted extremely close to regular muffins....or should I say like other alternative flours such as quinoa, buckwheat etc.
