Introduction

This gluten-free muffin has a low-glycemic count and uses coconut oil for the fat. I developed this originally for a friend who is gluten-free, but then I went and made it healthier.

These are slightly sweet, but not sugary. The lemon brings out the sweetness and flavor of the blueberries.

Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    1 cup Bob's Red Mills all-purpose flour
    3/4 tsp xanthan gum
    2 tsp baking powder
    1/4 tsp salt
    2 tsp nutmeg

    1/4 cup egg Beaters

    2 tbsp Coconut Oil - liquified
    1/3 cup Milk, 2%,
    1/4 cup light agave nectar
    1 tsp lemon extract

    1 cup frozen blueberries

Tips

Goods baked with agave nectar tends to brown faster than those made with sugar. If you think your muffins are getting too brown too quickly, put a foil tent over the muffin tin.


Directions

1. Preheat oven to 350░F. Coat 6-cup muffin pan with cooking spray.

2. Microwave coconut oil - about 15-20 seconds until just melted.

3. Whisk together flour, xanthan gum, baking powder, salt, and nutmeg in bowl.

4. Lightly beat egg in small bowl, then whisk in milk, agave, lemon extract, and then melted coconut oil.

5. Stir egg mixture into flour mixture and then fold in blueberries. Divide batter among prepared muffin cups.

6. Bake 20 to 25 minutes, or until muffins are light brown on top and toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
