Recipe Tips

  • You can replace the coconut milk with almond milk or a similar paleo-friendly milk.
  • Make sure you beat the liquids, so they are well combined. If you do not, you may end up with a mixture that does not work very well.
  • If the muffins are starting to burn on the outside but are still uncooked in the middle, then try covering them with foil. This method will help stop them from browning any further while allowing the mix to continue to cook.
  • These paleo blueberry muffins or any kind of paleo baking can be very hit and miss. If you are having trouble getting this recipe to work, then be sure to check out the video above.
  • If you cannot get your hands on fresh blueberries, then frozen blueberries will work.
  • Vanilla essence contains alcohol, so if you are trying to steer clear of anything that is not 100% paleo-friendly, I recommend using a vanilla bean. Vanilla bean is slightly more expensive but is worth the money.
