Paleo Diet: Blueberry Muffin, Try this Paleo Recipe
Andreas Heller studied sports science successfully at the Ruhr University of Bochum (Germany) in the years 2004-2008. Since his graduation, he has devoted most of his time and passion to fitness, health and nutrition to gather as much information as possible about these areas – undoubtedly three areas that influence a person’s quality of life in an enormous way. He is also the author of Andi’s Fitness Blog and the book series The LLA-Method – How to get really healthy, fit and sexy for a lifetime.
The Paleo diet advocates an eating philosophy centred around the way our ancestors ate nearly 200,000 years before the advent of grains and processed food. This blueberry muffin recipe is a typical paleo diet recipe, but anyone can try it.
Ingredients for 12 muffins:
- 1 vanilla bean
- 2 ripe bananas
- 3.5 oz. ( approximately 100g) ground almonds
- 4 eggs
- 2 tsp. cinnamon powder
- 0.7 oz. (approximately 20g) desiccated coconut
- 2 oz. (approximately 55g) grass-fed butter (or coconut oil)
- 0.5 tsp. (wine stone) baking powder
- 3.5-5 oz (approximately100-150g) blueberries
Preheat the oven to 350° F approximately 180° C).
Grease 12 cups of a muffin pan or fill them with paper muffin liners.
Now scrape the vanilla bean and melt the butter or coconut oil in a saucepan.
Put the bananas, the vanilla bean and the eggs into a big bowl and mix it with an electric hand mixer.
Add the remaining ingredients (except the blueberries) gradually to the bowl while you are still mixing until the dough is creamy.
Carefully mix in the blueberries by using a spoon. Pour the dough into the muffin pan or into the muffin liners and place it/them in the centre of the oven. Bake it for 30-35 minutes and enjoy!
