Lemon Poppy Coconut Flour Muffins

Coconut flour is a healthy alternative to enjoy baked goods guilt free…you just can’t eat a lot of it.

Health benefits of coconut flour:

  • gluten free and grain free
  • high in fiber
  • high in beneficial fats
  • high in protein
  • gentle on blood sugar levels due to it’s low level in digestible carbohydrates
  • inexpensive

In experimenting with this flour I have come to the following conclusion…stick to a recipe designed for coconut flour …a little coconut flour goes a long way so you can’t substitute for another flour in a recipe.

I modified this recipe from Elana’s Pantry's Cookbook and these fluffy little muffins were a big hit in the Bayne household…just limit yourself to 1 or 2…they are quite filling.
A perfect little treat for those up coming lunch boxes!
