Paleo Strawberry Chocolate Chip Muffins. Perfect for those who are fans of the strawberry + chocolate combo, but if you’d rather skip the chocolate, these muffins will still be great. Other berries (or a mix of berries) can be subbed for the strawberries. One of 20 gluten-free muffin recipes featured on gfe for March Muffin Madness.

Paleo Strawberry Chocolate Chip Muffins

Simone says: “I personally am a big fan of the strawberry + chocolate combo, but if you’d rather skip the chocolate, these muffins will still be great. And, of course, if you have a variety of berries, feel free to add them all in!”

 

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350ºF and line a 12-cup muffin tin with parchment liners
  2. In a blender, combine the shortening, honey, eggs, and vanilla. Blend until smooth.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk the almond flour, arrowroot starch, coconut flour, baking soda and sea salt. Add to the blender and blend for 8-10 seconds, or until well incorporated.
  4. Stir in the strawberries and chocolate chips.
  5. Divide among the prepared muffin tin and bake for 18-20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean.
  6. Cool the muffins in the tin on a wire rack before removing them.

Notes

Makes 12 muffins.

As noted in Simone’s introduction, the chocolate chips can be omitted if you wish and other berries (including a mix of berries) can be substituted for the strawberries.

Grain-free baked goods tend to mold faster than regular ones (because of higher protein content), so make sure to refrigerate after a day if you haven't eaten them all yet.

Simone recommends Equal Exchange Bittersweet Chocolate Chips. Some folks also consider Enjoy Life chocolate chips (which are more readily available) paleo friendly.
