Paleo Blueberry Muffins (Using Coconut Flour)

While there are many foods that make the list of superfoods, blueberries are always on top. Have you ever got a container of blueberries, and without even noticing, eat the whole thing? It happens to me often.  Maybe it’s my knowledge of blueberries and their strong antioxidant power, or maybe they are just simply delicious.

Blueberries are considered to be the highest food source of antioxidants, which destroy free radicals that can wreak havoc on our health and cause premature aging.  The antioxidants and phytochemicals in blueberries neutralize DNA-damaging free radicals, reducing cell damage. In fact, just 300 Grams of blueberries protects against DNA damage in humans.  Unfortunately,  not all blueberries exhibit the same effect.  Only organic blueberries are super rich in antioxidants; the non organic variety can actually do more harm than good as more often than not they are heavily sprayed with pesticides.

I also used coconut flour in this paleo blueberry muffin recipe. For those who don’t like the taste of coconuts, coconut flour actually doesn’t taste like coconuts.  However, it contains all the amazing health benefits that coconuts have. Just one tablespoon of coconut flour contains 10 grams of fiber, it’s high in protein and rich in beneficial fats – medium chain triglycerides.  These fats have been shown to boost metabolism. I love how a little coconut flour goes a long way because it absorbs liquid very efficiently.

 I have to say, I am not a big fan of muffins.  However, there’s something special about a Blueberry Muffin! Especially one that’s made with healthy ingredients.  This blueberry muffin is free of gluten, dairy and sugar!
