I recently had my family over for brunch and I made a batch of blueberry muffins (non- AIP) for them. I thought it was only fair that I make an AIP version for myself so I started playing around with some ingredients. Usually it takes me quite a few tries to get it right but this recipe I made twice and it turned out great both times so I thought I would share it with you.
I promise these Lemon Blueberry muffins are so good no one will be able to tell they are AIP! The consistency is so close to the real thing and the flavor is out of this world! I asked a few family members to try a bite of my AIP muffins and although they hesitated a little at first, they were pleasantly surprised and could be heard saying, “Oh, wow…that actually is good.”
So the next time you are having a Sunday brunch bring a batch of these, they are sure to be a crowd pleaser!

Lemon Blueberry Muffins (AIP, Paleo)
Lemon Blueberry Muffins
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line a muffin pan with parchment paper liners.
In a large bowl combine the coconut milk, honey, lemon juice & zest, coconut oil, and vanilla. Whisk until smooth.
In a medium sized bowl combine the flours, baking soda and salt together. Stir.
Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, whisking as you go. Whisk until thoroughly combined and no clumps.
Prepare the gelatin egg- pour the water in a small pan. Slowly sprinkle the gelatin over the water in a thin layer and allow to bloom for 2 minutes. Turn the heat to medium low to melt the gelatin and then whisk until frothy.
Pour the gelatin egg into the large bowl with the batter and quickly stir it in.
Gently fold in the blueberries. Spoon the batter into the muffin cups filling them 3/4 of the way full.
Bake for 20-25 minutes until the tops are lightly golden brown or until a toothpick comes out clean from the center of the muffin.
Remove from the oven and let cool in pan for 5 minutes. Then carefully move to a cooling rack (leave in liners) and allow to cool completely.
Store in the fridge for up to 1 week in a glass dish or in the freezer for up to 3 months. You may remove the liners for storage.
