Paleo muffins!

Anyone who thinks no grains means no muffins is mistaken! This recipe is a killer…the muffins taste incredible and can be adapted a million ways to suit whatever takes your fancy, food-wise.

Big thanks to @missglamourpuss and her fabulous blog for the recipe which I’ve adapted and edited below.

Paleo muffins

Paleo muffins


  • 1 banana, mashed
  • 1 x 5cm thick slice of 1/2 pawpaw – de-seeded and mashed
  • 50-100g raspberries, fresh or frozen
  • 8 macadamia nuts, chopped
  • 8 pecan halves, chopped
  • 2 eggs
  • 30ml coconut oil
  • 40ml coconut milk
  • 1tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp natural vanilla essence
  • pinch sea salt
  • 3 drops stevia
  • 1/2 cup almond meal
  • 1 tsp baking/bi-carb soda
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour

Preheat oven to 175c (350f) or 160c for a fan-forced oven.

Mash banana and pawpaw on the bottom of a bowl. Add all other ingredients except almond meal, coconut flour and nuts and mix well.

Mix baking soda into the almond meal in a small bowl. Add almond meal and baking soda mis into the big bowl and mix well.

Add coconut flour in a little at a time while mixing and checking for consistency, making sure the mixture doesn’t get too thick.

Lastly, add pecan and macadamia pieces – you can either add some of each to all muffins or split the batch so half are macadamia and half are pecan. I added them at the end so I could do the half-half more easily, and I just pushed them down into each muffin, leaving minimal nuts showing (to avoid burning).

Transfer into muffin cups and bake for 25-35 minutes, or until they pass the toothpick test (this will depend on your oven and final ingredients, so do keep an eye on things!)

Storage: Keep in the fridge in an airtight container. The muffins keep for about four days (on account of the fresh ingredients without any yuck preservatives) so freeze any you don’t think you’ll eat in that time!

Note: I’m going to purchase what is known as a Texan muffin tin, as these muffins are tiny. Which means I will be doubling the recipe amounts. Yum!
