Meal Monday: Blueberry Vanilla Pancake Muffins #recipe

Ok, so not really a "meal" but a recipe I tried this weekend.  I've been jonesing for something bread-like and came across this recipe for Paleo Blueberry Vanilla Pancake Muffins. I've tried making paleo pancakes and so far they've all been epic disasters.  These looked promising because I didn't have to stand over a stove for hours frying one little pancake at a time. I didn't have all the ingredients the recipe called for, so this is what I did.  Because of the changes I made, this isn't exactly paleo but it's close.

Blueberry Vanilla Pancake Muffins

1 cup unsweetened, vanilla almond milk
4 eggs
2 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup coconut flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
1 cup fresh blueberries

  1. Preheat the oven to 350*.  Line a 12 - muffin pan with cupcake liners.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the almond milk, eggs, vanilla and sugar.
  3. Stir in the coconut flour, salt and baking powder.
  4. Fold in the blueberries.
  5. Fill each liner about 2/3 full of batter.
  6. Bake for 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of each muffin comes out clean.
  7. Let the muffins cool.

They definitely look like blueberry muffins :)  I liked the flavor - they are very different but good.  The texture is the hardest thing to get past, like they are a little bit too moist, and they stick to the liners.  I will definitely try these again since they are only about 75 calories each based on the way I made them.  If you follow the original recipe, using liquid egg whites and stevia, they come in at about 35 calories each.
Do you have a gluten free or paleo muffin recipe you like?  If you do, please share it in the comments.

Now for something fun!  I also blog over at the Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans and we have a VERY cool giveaway going on right now.  Shrinking Jeans has joined with Lipton as part of their "Win an Extra SUNday" contest!  Hop over here and check it out!
