Paleo Blueberry Muffins {Grain Free, Dairy Free}


Is there any one kind of food that you eat all year long no matter if it’s in season or not? Yeah, that’s me with blueberries.  I am not exaggerating when I say that I could LITERALLY eat them every day….and sometimes twice a day. 

Typically I put them in smoothies or top a smoothie bowl with them.  I even put them in my oatmeal on the days I am craving something warm but I decided to break from the ordinary for a bit and give them a try in some muffins. 

Yes, I realize that blueberry muffins are one of the most popular kind but I am not usually a muffin person.  That is until I made my Grain Free Mimosa Muffins which then left me craving blueberry muffins in the worst way. 

After nearly a month of saying I was going to whip these up,  I finally did and they turned out even better than I dreamed.  

Paleo, Grain Free, Dairy Free and Gluten Free Blueberry Muffin Recipe

You see, I added a secret ingredient to really take them to the next level.  Much like my mimosa muffins which taste like a burst of champagne sunshine due to the real orange juice and bubbly, these blueberry muffins are made with almond flour and flavored with just a splash of almond extract to take them to the next level.
