Primal Blueberry Muffins

Delicious Delicious Delicious!

These muffins are the REAL DEAL. They aren’t crazy dense like most paleo-friendly muffins.  Make them for your weekend family brunch and NO ONE will know that they are a healthier version. 🙂 I found this recipe via Pinterest. Go check out Everyday Maven cause she’s got some awesome recipes and a beautiful website!

I first toyed with the idea of calling these Blueberry Volcanoes because…

volcanoesI have no clue why or how this happened. But I thought they looked awesome! What a great  baking experience for kids. If I were  kid I would rather eat a volcano than a muffin. FACT.


As far as the “primal” distinction is concerned… I’m not sure how the texture of the muffin would change if you subbed out the butter for coconut oil, but go ahead and try it, and let me know in the comments! You could also get crazy and use some grassed milk instead of nut milk if you’re a dairy eater.


Primal Blueberry Muffins

2 c. cashew meal or almond flour
1/2 c. tapioca or potato starch
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. sea salt
1/3 c. coconut palm sugar
1/4 c. Kerrygold butter, room temperature
3 eggs, room temperature
1/2 c. nut milk
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 tsp. almond extract

1 c. blueberries

  1. In a food processor, blend butter and sugar until mixed well.
  2. Add eggs and extracts and blend until smooth.
  3. Add flour, salt, baking powder, and baking soda.
  4. While processor is running, drizzle in the nut milk until well combined.
  5. Finally, fold in the blueberries (fresh or frozen will work, just defrost and drain the frozen ones)
  6. Bake at 350 for 25 – 30 mins until toothpick comes out clean.
  7. Enjoy with some pastured butter!

Carnitas Bowls for everybody! And by everybody, I mean all my super special clients who will be eating well this week 🌶 Mango Chili Lime Chicken Salad 🥑🍋🌶🥒
This was SO EASY to throw together.
The MVPs
1. Chili lime seasoning from Trader Joe's 
2. Mango Salsa from Costco (I blame @girlsgonewodpodcast for this discovery).
Marinate the chicken thighs in lemon/lime juice and chili seasoning before putting on the grill.
Chop up cucumber and shred some cabbage.
Mix together chopped grilled chicken, salsa, cuke, cabbage, and too with some avocado. ☀️🥗☀️🥗☀️ Geoff has decided to try the keto diet which means more toast for me 😏 Doin' it.
Had a bit of a meltdown last night and realized I need more life in my life.
Social media is awesome. I love sharing photos of healthy food, fun times, and my awesome family @theledfordcrew; but nothing replaces time with them, giving life and work my full attention, and cultivating my in-person relationships.
For Mother's Day, I'm giving myself the gift of presence and I'm going to do it for the whole month.
Be back later!
