Lemon Berry Coconut Flour Muffins (a paleo and nut-free recipe) by Ashley of My Heart Beets

Um… hi. My name is Ashley and I’m a coconut flour addict.

In the past week, I’ve made savory Italian coconut flour muffins, coconut flour birthday cake, and now… lemon berry muffins! And don’t for a second think I’m done with the coconut flour madness. Let’s just say a coconut flour chocolate cake is in your future.

Why the coconut flour craze over here? To be totally honest, I have too much coconut flour in my pantry. Plus, the nut-free + dessert sections in my fancy-schmancy recipe index needed some lovin’. Oh, and I of course LOVE my nut-free readers and want to give them more food options.

Something I MUST tell you about baking these sweet fruity muffins: you will want to use silicone baking cups (or an extremely well-greased pan). The only reason I use pretty paper liners is that they look cute in photos which is what (hopefully) convinces you to make the muffins. You know what’s not cute though? Losing ⅛ of my muffin to a paper liner. That’s just the deal when it comes to baking coconut flour muffins/cupcakes you guys. So get on the silicone baking cup bandwagon.

Let me tell you about how good these muffins are. They are BERRY good.  Alright, you had to see that coming. In all seriousness though (yes, let’s be serious about muffins now), they have a light lemon flavor and the swirly berry topping basically screams summer.

    First time experimenting with coconut flour and I tried this recipe. Maybe I’m not loving the coconut flour it has a more dense texture. One thing I am certain is that there is way too much egg in this recipe, left a very eggy after taste.

    I absolutely LOVED these. I have been experimenting with coconut flour a lot over the past couple of months, and this the first time I’ve baked something with coconut flour that does not taste too egg-y. And I think the amount of lemon juice and rind in the recipe is just perfect – the flavor that came through was wonderful! For some reason, I was worried putting in rind would make it bitter, but that wasn’t a problem at all. Thanks!

      Strange as it may sound but coconut is actually a fruit!
      Even stranger, peanuts are legumes and a banana is a giant herb!
