These paleo blueberry muffins are so amazing you will find yourself wanting more. They’re paleo-friendly, gluten-free and bake to be incredibly moist and packed with flavor.
As you may already know Paleo baking is harder than usual since we can’t use a lot of the traditional baking ingredients. This difficulty doesn’t mean you can’t make some excellent tasting baked goods.
These moist paleo friendly blueberry muffins are an exception and are just so delicious. They’re pretty easy to quickly whip up and get ready for your next dessert or snack.
This muffin mixture will work in either a small or large muffin tray. Personally, I prefer smaller muffins rather than large. Just make sure you either use muffin papers or grease the tray before distributing the mixture into the muffin tin.
You will also notice that we use tapioca starch in this recipe. If you want to learn more about why tapioca starch is paleo friendly, then be sure to check out our guide.
Paleo baked goods don’t tend to age very well, so I highly recommend that you eat these as fresh as possible. If they remain for more than a day, then they might start to become a bit dry.

- If you prefer, you can replace the coconut milk with almond milk or a similar paleo friendly milk.
- Make sure you beat the liquids together well, so they are well combined. If you don’t, you may end up with a mixture that doesn’t work very well.
- It’s important to know that these paleo blueberry muffins or any kind of paleo baking can be very hit and miss. If you’re having trouble getting this recipe to work, then be sure to check out the video above.
- If you find your muffins are starting to burn on the outside but are still uncooked in the middle. Then you should try covering them with foil. This method will help stop them from browning any further while allowed the mix to continue to cook.
- If you can get your hands on any fresh blueberries, then frozen blueberries will work just as well.
- You should be aware that vanilla essence contains alcohol for those trying to steer clear of anything that is not 100% paleo friendly then I recommend using a vanilla bean. Vanilla bean is slightly more expensive but is worth the money. (It tastes amazing)
