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.
