Paleo Muffin Recipes: Blueberry, Banana and Pumpkin Muffins!

Paleo Muffin Recipes

I love muffins.

Or rather I used to love muffins!

You see on the paleo diet, you can’t eat bread, and no bread means no wheat or grains, and no wheat or grains generally means no muffins or scones! Now I love the paleo diet, but that’s pretty sad…

I’ve recently done some searching online though and found some great paleo friendly muffin recipes. Yup, they really do exist. For the most part they substitute regular cake flour for almond flour, and honey for sugar. This is great for us as modern day cavemen who have a sweet tooth.

Below I’ve collected three paleo muffin recipes from around the web which look to be easy to make with relatively simple ingredients

Paleo Banana Muffins Recipe

This recipe should make about 5-10 muffins



What you’ll need:

  • Almond flour: 1.5 cups
  • Baking soda: half a teaspoon
  • Baking powder (You could experiment with leaving this out): also half a teaspoon
  • Flaxseed:  2 tablespoons
  • Ground Cinnamon: 1 teaspoon
  • Bananas: At least two ripe bananas
  • Eggs: 2
  • Salt: a pinch
  • Nutmeg: a pinch too!
  • Honey: 1 tablespoon
  • Olive oil: 1 tablespoon
  • Vanilla extract: half a teaspoon
  • Walnuts: about half a cup should be good. Substitute in any other nuts if you like!

How to bake:

  • Mix almond flour, flaxseed, cinnamon, baking soda, the baking powder, nutmeg and salt
  • Mix the bananas, honey, eggs, vanilla and olive oil in another bowl
  • Combine the wet and dry ingredients and mix until the mixture is smooth
  • Gently put some of the mixture into each baking cup or into each hole in your baking tray. Don’t fill up the holes as the mixture will rise somewhat when it is being baked.
  • Bake the muffins for around 25 minutes and check to see if they are cooked correctly
  • Remove the muffins when they are cooked all the way through. An easy way to check this is to use a toothpick and make sure that the muffin is dry the whole way through
  • Put the muffins somewhere to cool for around 15 minutes
  • EAT!

Paleo Blueberry Muffins Recipe

What you’ll need:

  • Coconut oil: Melted and about a third of a cup is fine
  • Baking soda: Half a teaspoon
  • Baking powder: Half a teaspoon
  • Salt: A pinch
  • Cinnamon: Also a pinch!
  • Blueberries: Should be fresh! About half a cup

How to bake:

  • Make sure your oven is preheated to around 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Mix everything together in a bowl until smooth! Add the dry ingredients after first mixing all the wet ingredients together.
  • Put the mixture into your baking tray/holder of choice.
  • Bake for about 20 minutes. The muffins will rise!
  • Remove and allow to cool.
  • Enjoy!

  • Combine the dry ingredients and then pour in/mix in the wet ingredients, keep mixing until as smooth as possible!
  • Fill your muffin tray/cups about three quarters of the way as the mixture will rise somewhat.
  • Cook for around 20 minutes.
  • Leave to cool, and then eat and enjoy!

So there are three great paleo muffin recipes, my personal favourite is likely to be the banana or the blueberry, although when I try make them I’ll have to see, I have a suspicion that the pumpkin muffin recipe is going to surprise me! Hopefully I’ll be able to try them this weekend.

Let me know how these paleo muffin recipes work out for you!
