Paleo Coconut Banana Blueberry Muffins

Call me queen of the grain-free muffin recipe! I have several Paleo muffin recipes on my blog, including one with raspberries and rhubarb, zucchini and plums, and raspberries and pears. This new recipe with blueberries and coconut has to be my favorite! Maybe it’s because I love blueberries so much. But I think it’s because of the banana. There something about adding banana to coconut flour that makes it moist and sweet.

I’ve been craving muffins during my pregnancy, and this combination of ingredients fulfills my desire for pastry-like foods. And yet, this recipe is super healthy with fiber from the coconut flour, antioxidants from the berries, and potassium from the banana. Plus, there is no refined sugar! I’m still eating grain-free for now and feeling good. I can eat two or three muffins in one sitting and not feel like I’ve overloaded on carbs, because I haven’t. And all of these ingredients are real food, not like processed gluten-free muffins available on store shelves. My Coconut Banana Blueberry Muffins are easy to make and will be a treat for your entire family. This recipe would also be great to share with friends or family who are new to the Paleo diet lifestyle.

For this batch, I used 1 and 1/2 cups of blueberries. That’s why you see berries practically falling out of the muffins in the photos. So yummy!
