Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Generously grease 36 miniature muffin cups with coconut oil.

  • Whisk eggs, ghee, pumpkin puree, maple syrup, and vanilla extract together in a bowl. Stir coconut flour, baking soda, and sea salt into egg mixture just until batter is combined. Fold frozen blueberries into batter. Spoon batter into the prepared muffin cups. Press 1 fresh blueberry on top of each muffin.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until lightly browned, about 25 minutes.

Cook's Note:

Coconut oil can be substituted for ghee. Avocado oil can be substituted for the coconut oil for greasing the muffin cups.

If you want regular sized muffins bake for an extra 10 to 15 minutes. The batter is fairly thick after combining the dry ingredients. You can use a mini ice cream scoop or wide spoon to add dollops of the batter to your muffin cups.

I loved these! I didn't have any pumpkin, so I mashed up two overripe bananas and used those instead, and I didn't have any maple syrup, so I just substituted honey. I also had to use coconut oil instead of the ghee and I added 1/2 cup dark brown sugar. They came out very moist and very yummy! Definitely a keeper! Read More

This is the third time I've made a highly rated "paleo" food that uses coconut flour. This is the third time I thought it was "meh" when everyone else seemed to love it. Today I had an epiphany -- I must not like coconut flour. I also don't particularly care for ghee so I guess it was destined for me to not love these muffins. And these do not taste like Entenman's in any way. Read More

I just started the Paleo diet and I was a sugar addict before. So these looked yummy. My first attempt was not what I was hoping for but I followed the recipe. They will work in a pinch! My fault was I sprayed too much coconut spray in the paper muffin holders and they came out mushy and wet on the bottom. I took them out of papers & put them on a paper towel. I could taste the pumpkin (not a big fan) and they didn t rise as I had hoped. They were a bit mealy but I will try again. Read More
